There isn’t much fresh water fishing in the West Wight but there are sea fishing trips organized from Yarmouth Harbour on which the harbour staff will be happy to advise. Equipment can be bought from Harwoods in the Square in Yarmouth.
There are also great places for shore fishing.
Totland village has a very good fishing tackle shop and there also one in Newport – Scottie’s.

Our most local Tackle shop is the newly opened Needles Tackle in Avenue Road, Freshwater. PO40 9UR  Tel. 01983 716424 or email or check them out on
