Our Sea Fishing Features section is the place to be to read all of our live features from our fishing around the UK, Ireland and the rest of the world. These features concentrate on a particular mark or area and are, for the most part, story-driven.
Sea Angling is a diverse sport that takes place all over the world, utilising a vast array of different tackle and techniques to catch literally thousands of species. While many anglers want to know the nitty-gritty, raw, how-to information to help them catch fish, some, just want to relax and read about angling stories and adventures. This is where our sea fishing features come in. Each feature is story-driven, telling you exactly how the day panned out, line by line. Each sea fishing feature is backed by good quality photographs to keep you immersed in the experience. Our website is mobile and tablet friendly, so these articles can be read while you’re on your daily commute or saved for reading later while you’re on your holidays or just fancy a quick read while you’re in the garden. We hope you enjoy them.
If you have a fishing adventure and have a yearning to write down what you got up to, then, we’re always interested in hearing about your stories. We accept good quality, well-written articles of 1,500 words or more backed up with good quality photographs. If you’ve got a story to tell, please get in touch with us via our article submission form here.
