    back from gran canaria

    thanks all you guys for giving me advice, my turn to repay all the advice you gave.

    Found a great place to fish called amadores, near puerto rico, fished a couple of days with a group from wales and they were catching decent size sting rays, around 30lb mark.

    The place in amadores is right at the end of the pier where all along there are sun beds, so my wife could sunbathe and i could fish off the rocks, best time from about 3 hrs before high tide and better leading up to sunset, bait used was full and fresh sardine, place i bought them was at a fresh fish shop next door to Casa Victor (angling shop): Calle Pedro Perdomo, 5,. 35120 Arguineguín, Gran Canaria, which is the place i arranged a fishing licence (he arranges these for you over the internet)

    hope this helps, will return again some day.

    Nice one. Did you fish with some sort of proof of purchase or was it a full licence? As far as we've been able to ascertain, the only shore fishing licence available via the Internet is the Catalonian one.

    I fished with the licence acknowledgement, the licence (a plastic card) is to follow within a month, i looked at the catalonian one but opted to go via casa victor (a fishing tackle shop in gran canaria, can forward you the copy if you supply me an email address so you can look at it, i dont speak spanish and do hope it will cover the whole of spain as its a 3 year licence, here is where i got it http://www.gran-canaria-beaches.com/...a-fishing.html

    The Canary licences, clase 1 (deep sea boat fishing with trolling) class 2 (subaqua/spear fishing) and class 3 (shore and boat fishing no trolling) are all valid for three years and cost 29.44E, 22.08E and 14.74E respectively. The class 2 & class 3 licences will be the ones valid all over Spain. The class 1 licence would only be valid in the Canaries as other coastal regions (mine in particular) wouldn't necessarily have a trolling or no trolling option. It's also possible to get combinations like 1 & 2, 2 & 3, 1 & 3 and 1,2 & 3, but would push the price up obviously and if you're not interested in spear fishing and big game fishing on your own boat (tourists are covered on deep sea trolling trips) there's not really much point. I'll contact him via the link you've posted, cheers. Finn...

    Clase 3 pesca recreativa de superficie sin currican... which translates as "class 3 recreational surface fishing, boat without trolling". :-)
