Health Benefits - Sea Fishing

Physical Health

  • Getting out and about is a great start to becoming more physically fit.
  • Some sea angling spots will require you to walk a fair distance before you find the perfect place to cast.

Mental Health

  • Getting away from it all in the fresh sea air can be a great way to unwind and de-stress.
  • Please tidy up your tackle after you have finished so you know it will not cause any harm to others or wildlife.

Rehab and Recovery

  • Going fishing can be a great way to help you get back to your ‘old self’ and be part of a wider recovery programme.


  • You can fish alone or as part of a group.
  • Meet up with other anglers to share stories of fish and other monsters from the deep.
  • Help keep the coast and sea safe by disposing of your tackle responsibly. Many spots on the coast have bins for your used tackle.

Weight Management

  • Any walking to reach your fishing destination is going to be good for you.
