Fishing in Canarias
Gently bathed by the Atlantic Ocean and sporting a bad case of the Eternal Summer syndrome, the Canary Islands are as close as you'll get to a true tropical heaven on earth. And with over 50 world fishing records set in the Gran Canaria alone, you're pretty much guaranteed a prime quality fishing experience as well. The archipelago's Big Game prospects remain a well-kept secret for many, but that's bound to change any minute now. Better start packing!
