Not familiar with the area but it sounds interesting... are you headed there?

Bluewater opportunities appear on search engines... charters seem very inexpensive as well by US terms.



Reputed to be a place where an angler might be distracted by heavy partying activity and not all in good taste according to the lonely planet website.

Inshore fishing info largely non-existent but an active local fishing community (subsistence) should yield much information to a tourist with "de fat line".

Saltwater flyfishing is starting to get some airtime in Spain. European sea bass, bluefaish and atlantic makerel are plentiful along with mullet. Mullet will drive you crazy and get to large sizes. Hook one and you'll be wondering if you have enough backing.

Being quite a bit further south off the West African coat I would definitely do some exploring inshore. Try to get one of the local Pascadores to take you out. He'll think you're nuts wanting to flyfish but who knows what might turn up.

You're right about the partying. I used to go there alot in my youth... Awesome!

You can get Yellow-fin tuna, some blue and white marlin from off-shore Teneriffe/ Grand canaries.
From the shore, though could be a different matter as the Spanish are pretty good fishermen!
European Bass, if you're lucky, Lizard fish, Mackerel (atlantic), bluefish and maybe some cuda's. Also present are Mullet and Wrasse, both can be tricky on fly though.

Harbours can be interesting places - especialy where the netsmen clean their nets at the dockside and chuck all sorts of tid-bits into the water. Especially check these spots out at night under lighted docks - you never know what's lurking in the shadows
