About Us

Welcome to the Torbay Sea Angling Festival

​The long established event attracts well over 3,250 entries from anglers drawn to some of the finest fishing in the country.

While the sheltered waters of the Bay are the focus of the Festival the actual fishing limits extend many miles in each direction to allow anglers to fish their favourite marks.

The Eastward limit is Pinhay Bay at Beer and the Western limit Bolt Head at the mouth of Salcombe estuary. This means that you can fish the tidal estuaries of the Exe, Teign, Dart and Kingsbridge. Boats fishing out of ports within this area can also fish the Festival.

The event covers the prime fishing grounds in the South West and the specimens landed each year are exceptional.

Festival trophies have been built up over many years and make a glittering show on presentation night. Many thousands of pounds worth of tackle and other prizes are also won every year, along with the main cash prizes - £750 for the winning fish and £350 for each of the three sections and reels.

But it’s not just the superb fishing which attracts anglers to the Torbay Sea Angling Festival every year. Torbay is the top holiday destination and many families accompany anglers to the resort to pursue their own fun.

Despite the tough competition it has always been a friendly Festival and the angling clubhouses at Brixham, Paignton and Dartmouth always look forward to welcoming anglers as guests during the nine day Festival to hear the inevitable tales of the ones that got away.
