Hi All, Does anybody know the SWFF potential around Marbella at ths time of year?
Going out there to work in a couple of weeks and might find myself with a couple of days to kill.
Thanks
Tom.

January is prime time for large bass coming inshore to feed in very shallow water on the Costa Blanca. Chances are the Costa Del Sol will be the same. Find an estuary and you should find fish :D

I have heard you need a licence to fish the coast down there. What do you know about this?

Each region is different. I contacted the local Tourist Info Bureau and the (English) lady explained that no license was required to fish the beaches. Fresh water is another matter however.
Will you be near an estuary?

No there doesn't seem to be any estuaries to fish, so only the beach. I am thinking I won't be fishing after all, as only flying EasyJet so not a huge baggage allowance, so I might leave the rods at home, maybe take some fly tying gear and start getting the stocks up for the forcoming UK season.
