Fishing as a Sport

Fishing as a Sport

Man has practised fishing since the Stone Age, when bones sharpened in the style of pencils were used as rods and pieces of trailing plants as thread. Fishing as a sport and leisure activity is more recent, although it was also practised in the past.

The Basque fishing tradition has also had an influence in the development of fishing as a sport and leisure activity. Today, there are many fishing clubs that organise competitions, such as the “Tuna Fishing Competition” in its categories of tag and release and game fishing. The boats of this enthusiasts anchor in different marinas along the Basque coast.For useful information on mooring facilities in Hondarribia, Getaria and Bermeo visit the website www.ekpsa.com.
