Spoil yourself with fishing vacations...
Indeed, some have them by the harbor of Puerto de la Cruz. The picture beside shows a big orange rubber dingy. This boat is used by a good local club for diving school outings. Similar boats are taken out for holiday fishing, mostly for private use. Discover wooden boats, too. They belong to professional fishermen. Make out two people swimming next to the orange boat!What about shark attacks?
There are absolutely no such records.
Catch your own very fresh fish which some do in this harbor. There, see Cazones caught which are local miniature sharks.
Of course, it helps much that the lady's boyfriend his local. He knows more than best Tenerife fishing grounds, which could even be close by, such as a little spot out of the way in Puerto de la Cruz.
By the way off the beaten track, such as the Punta Brava hamlet backyard, has rather dangerous Tenerife fishing grounds. Some guys fish there for nearby renown seafood restaurants.
Wondering about fishing bait tips?
My young friends flyfish with modern rods and fish lines.
Asians were known to fish with silk lines. Others even used cotton. The modern world uses all sorts of synthetics.
Well, there is a peculiar ancient Tenerife custom to flyfish with lines which are painstakingly made of goat leather (cuero de cabra). It is always used with bamboo rods but, such traditional Tenerife fishing lines cannot be bought for love or money. They are priceless.
Use an Internet computer translator to help you understand the Spanish...
Go to the office of Multiple Usos in the capital Santa Cruz.
The Multiple Usos is a stone throw from the Tenerife Military museum a free must see, by the way. There is also a Chinese restaurant opposite with a big red dragon. I think that it still says 'Multiple Usos' in big letters on the house front when you walk under trees along the shore there and look up to one of the last big buildings over the road.
Or ask a Titsa driver to 'Avisame Multiple Usos, por favor'. Take note on paper of the kind of permit you want in Spanish, just in case...
Where have your base for Tenerife fishing trips? Best use self catering Tenerife accommodation, such as a Tenerife villa or at least any of Tenerife apartments. Of course, your own Tenerife apartment may be ideal, where garden and pool maintenance is taken care of already.
