Sea Angling on La Gomera (Apartment optional)

A happy skipper, having filled the ice box
with La Gomera's fish delicacies
The owner of the sample apartment/hostel premises shown and recommended in the previous posts below also happens to be a passionate sea angler and owns a comfortable small boat. He loves taking up to 4 persons on trips on the Atlantic off La Gomera, operating out of the harbour of Vueltas in Valle Gran Rey. He can provide all the gear plus beer ! 
Trips are by private arrangement only and  you don't have to be a guest in his house to book his fully licensed  and taxed service. He'll also take you out if you just want a pleasure trip and maybe spot some whales or turtles.

The boat: 'Angelica One'
BUT (there's always a but) he doesn't speak English despite the fact that he has been to Ireland (even skippered boats there) umpteen times. So he wants me to come along as a translator/helper, and I will gladly oblige because I've been out on the Atlantic off Ireland for a living in a previous much loved existence and miss the smell of fish...
Anyway, 'phone me if you're interested in accommodation or fishing (or both) on 0034-922805603
... and  really, honestly, I only do this for fun !  (We must be getting old)

  1. Hi Willie,

    I'm Irish and my boyfriend is a french skipper (who likes sailing in Ireland and Scotland). We're coming to La Gomera at Christmas and would love to stay in your friends accomodation and go on a fishing trip. Do you have an email address?

    Thanks
