I have decide start this blog with wonderful focus and spirit. TRIW is dedicate to people love travel to amazing environments, enjoy the outdoor, and most important: FISHING.
Fishing all over the world
Warm waters and exotic locale is why China is one most exciting places to go fishing. The Yangtze river and the South China sea are some best places to catch some wild fish.
The southern seas present great opportunity catching some large bluefin tuna.
My main concerns with China for fishing trip is the pollution in air and water. China is a rapidly industrializing nation with bad environmental safety laws. This makes some heavily toxic waterways and lakes — most have killed many of the fish in the natural aquatic ecosystems.
The air is also significant concern. Spending little time here can be hazardous to your health. Smaller cities in coastal areas south have no problem.
If you are concerned about the northern rivers head south. The warm waters are beautiful and you can take your try at some deep sea fishing. Sure, it is not much relaxing as a nice calm river, but it is better than lead toxicity!
The Great Yangtze
The Yangtze river is one of the great water ways of the world.
Gateway to Asia
As I consider a trip to China, you can go some other places in Asia while you are there. The Mekong river is another great water way with some legendary catfish. There are legends in Vietnam, Cambodia, and Thailand of a catfish so big that it could swallow a man whole.
If you have ever watched River Monsters, you will know what I am talking about. Imagine a thrill of hooking a legendary monster!
Yangshuo, Guangdong near Guilin
A famous river locale in China. Bird have been trained to help fishermen catch fish.
Shenzhen is a big city in China near the seaside. There are limited opportunities to fish. Some small ponds provide some places to relax.
Back in the day before the big city, Shenzhen was a small quiet fishing village. Economic reform policies in the 1980s changed the village into a big city fast.
Guangzhou is a big city also in the south of China. There is the Zhujiang river. There are a couple of good places to fish around here, but industry has mainly polluted the waters.
Hai Ou Island is going to be developed as a nature and fishing tourist area.
