Did you know that Spain is one of the most visited countries in the world? Each year the number of new tourists in the country exceeds the forecast, so much so that only in 2017 it is estimated that 80 million people have passed through Spanish territory.
It is also a country famous for its beautiful cost and fishing possibilities. The cost line in this country is over 2,000 km and there are thousands of lakes, river, and reservoirs. Some of the catches in these waters include carp, pike, trout, salmon, barbel, tilapia, tuna, and cod.
When it comes to freshwater fishing in Spain, there are some restrictions on the number on licenses issued every day, as well as restrictions on the bait and technique that can be used. Most rivers also have a limit on the size and number of fishes that can be caught.

A great example of fishing experience under 150€ in Spain is the Fishing Day in the Gulf of Cádiz. This region is famous for its predator fishing in the sea, and for the big number of rivers and lakes. Besides, the stunning landscape of the Tinto river is a spectacular thing to witness.
Lithuania might not be the first place that pops into your mind when thinking of fishing, but the truth is that the natural resources of the country are very underrated. A great example of that is the Curonian Spit, Unesco World Heritage Site, which has long beaches, dunes, and pines forests.
Lakes and rivers, deep woods, broad plains, and traditional villages mark the natural reserves of Lithuania. The sites also place great value on the preservation of the cultural heritage of these regions, especially the Trakai National Park.
When it comes to fishing, there are some rules to be followed. A license when fishing less than 500m from the shore, except when fishing with float rod from the shore. There is special permission of he borderline police to go fishing in the Baltic Sea and the borderline water pools. Furthermore, during the night, only fishing from the shore and from the ice is allowed.
On top of all the great fishing possibilities, if you need another reason to go fishing in Lithuania here it is: traveling to Lithuania can be rather cheap. The capital, Vilnius, has been regularly considered one of the cheapest cities in Europe for many years. And that means not only cheap accommodation but also a very reasonable price for food and drinks. A pint of beer, for example, costs less than 2,50€.
A good option of fishing experience in Lithuania is the Non-guided self-catering Salmon fishing, in which you can catch not only salmon but trout and chub in the River Neris and Dūkšta stream. Šventoji, another great salmon river, is also easily reachable with an hour drive.
Honduras is a tropical country located in Central America, with Caribbean Sea coastlines in its north side and the Pacific Ocean to the south. This means that Honduras has superb fishing.
While we might agree that this part of the Caribbean is not very easy to reach, that is exactly the part of its appeal when fishing. The remote location will make you feel like you are the first person to discover these waters.
When it comes to different species, there are a great number of permit, tarpon, and bonefish in the regions. And the good news is that fishing is solid all year around in Honduras. Moreover, fishing licenses are not needed in the region.
The Bay Islands of Honduras (Roatan, Guanaja and Utila) are the perfect alternative for those who want to discover the Central American angling without going over budget.
And when we say that you can travel to Honduras in a tight budget we really mean it! As a matter of fact, a cup of coffee at the local airport costs around $0,90 and you can pay for a great pina colada in a bar only $1,50.
A Half Day Fishing in the Beautiful Roatan Island can be the perfect way to discover Honduras' angling mysteries without spending much. During this fishing experience, we will have the opportunity to catch permit, tarpon, and bonefish, but also snooks, jacks, barracudas, and snappers.
