Holidays in Gran Canaria aren’t typically associated with fishing but ever since (and probably long before) Scott Maslen, who plays Jack Branning in Eastenders and starred on Strictly Come Dancing, caught a giant carp and was pictured on the front of Angler’s Mail, visitors are trying their hand at it.
It is almost one of the best kept secrets on the island that the lakes are ideal for carp fishing. So any keen fishers looking for some sun as they perch on the riverbank, might find Gran Canaria an opportunity too good to turn down.
There are many places where holidaymakers can pick up equipment, if they haven’t packed some of their own. Many of these places also give advice on the best areas to taking the fishing tackle.
Of course, one of the other attractions about fishing on the lakes of Gran Canaria is the views and chance to discover countryside. Whilst many people will limit their discovery of the island to the beaches, there is plenty to enjoy and appreciate further inland.
Because of the geographical position of the island, Gran Canaria benefits from a varying climate. This has helped to create some excellent scenery that is best appreciated in quiet surroundings.
