Top 9 International Fishing Spots for Travel



Whether you’re a hard-core angler looking for a fresh fishing hole or a world traveler searching for a relaxing day in a foreign environment, there are plenty of international fishing options to explore. Certainly the Oregon streams offer world-class locations to pull salmon and trout. And of course, the sheepshead of the Gulf Coast rivals any on Earth. But, there’s element of mystery and exploration added to your already exciting day on the water when you’re in a distant country.

Enjoy European history during the week and loch and canal fishing during the weekends. Or, try your hand in the Asian port cities of Shanghai and Hong Kong after exploring their famous gardens and mountains. With a little planning and research, your fishing experience will only add to the incredible stories of your journey. Narrowing down your preferred fishing location from every possible destination in the world can be a bit tricky.

Perhaps, first targeting interesting activities outside of fishing would be the proper route to follow. But, no matter where you end up, there’s sure to be a prime lake or bay nearby to cast your line into. So, make sure you have the best spinning reels, rods, and equipment on the market, and then hit one of these leading destinations.

1. East Cape, Baja, Mexico

Who doesn’t want to catch a marlin? If you’re in Mexico, make sure you don’t miss a chance to snatch one of the most exotic and beautiful species in the world. Ideally, you’ll want to target the summer months for the best chances. Set yourself up on a nice trolling rig and be prepared to reel in a 1,000-pound beauty. Located on a peninsula off the west coast of Mexico, Baja is a prime location for fishing, relaxing, and enjoying that famous resort life. With the glassy waters and comfortable temperature, it’s hard to find a better place to throw your line in.

2. Iztapa, Guatemala

Pacific Sailfish pepper the waters in this Central American destination. Again, trolling during the summer months will yield the best results when looking to bag a new trophy fish.

3. Cairns, Australia

Still got the itch to catch marlin? This time, try the Australian hot bed between Cairns and Lizard Island. The black marlin here are renowned for their size and fight. If you’re willing to engage in a battle of nature for a couple of hours, this is the spot for you. And, bonus, take in the Great Barrier Reef and the natural beauty of the rainforest while you are in the majestic state of Queensland.

4. Amazon Basin, Brazil

If you haven’t considered fishing in the Amazon Basin yet, what are you waiting for? For best results target July or August — just know that the piranha will be hungry too.

5. Halong Bay, Vietnam

So you’ve caught your trout, bass, and snappers. Heck, maybe you’ve even explored the areas above and landed a marlin or two. It’s time to step up — to squid. Yep, in the Halong Bay in Vietnam you can reel in your own cephalopod. And, even better news, they are great for the eating when you get back on the mainland. If you’re set on catching more than one in a night, make sure you don’t miss the fishing season near the end of the year. You won’t be disappointed.

6. Rio Grande, Argentina

Perhaps you’re more interested in the South American culture. Argentina is an incredible country for tourism with a fishing industry perfect for some vacation trophy catching.

7. Pi-as Bay, Panama

Catch yourself a massive tuna and party it up just 35 miles from the Columbian border. The fishing must be good, as more world records have been set here than anywhere else on earth.

Cuttle fish at Sugiton, Marseille

8. Chalk Streams, England

If you’re angling to fly fish, this is the destination for you. Oh, and maybe take a detour to London on the way.

9. Lough Currane, Ireland

If you’re fishing for salmon you should be fishing in Lough Currane. There’s enough water here to keep you occupied for an entire year, should you choose to vacation for that long. And, as with the rest of the spots on this list, you won’t be disappointed by the culture and experience.

5 Ways To Improve Your Sight



Our eyesight is perhaps one of our most useful and most essential senses (this, of course, may be moot). For many, the idea of losing their vision can be a scary thing. Loss of vision begins for many in their late 40s when it starts to become prominent. However, there are many ways in which you can improve your sight and keep from losing it in the extended scheme of things.

So here in this list, we have taken the liberty to compile a list of 5 ways in which you can improve your sight.

5 Ways To Improve Your Sight

# 1 – Prescription Glasses

In today’s internet driven world it is now easier than ever to get whatever you want online. You can buy glasses online or prescription sunglasses very easy and have it delivered to your home. No fuss and no hassle.

# 2 – Eat Carrots

Carrots are especially beneficial for our eye health, and it would prove invaluable for you to eat or drink as much carrot juice as you can. It may initially have a bitter taste but the more you drink it you will get used to it.

# 3-  Bilberry Supplements

Bilberry is a supplement that is not that common with those who aren’t into the health niche, but bilberry is an excellent supplement for those who are looking to improve their eyesight.

# 4 – Watch Things From Far Away

This may seem like a strange method, but when you look at items off at a distance, you are strengthening your eyes. Your eyes are muscles, and they need exercise just as much as your body does.

So when you are looking at items or object off at a distance you are doing your eyes a significant workout that they desperately need.

# 5 Finger Eye Push Ups

To continue on with our last entry – a great way to get your eyes to see better and to improve them is by doing finger eye push-ups. Now, this doesn’t mean placing your finger in your eye but your eye’s vision.

By placing your finger in front of your eye and then away and back again you will strengthen the eye. This is because the eye is working to see an object in two different ranges.

Strength Your Eyes

Improving your eyes without surgery and an operation is possible. And if you consider these methods, you will “see” where we are coming from.

Three Reasons Pregnant Women Should Test Their Tap Water



Drinking plenty of fresh, clean water is an important part of a healthy lifestyle.  It’s even more important to make sure your water is free of contaminants when you are pregnant.  Drinking enough water during pregnancy maintains amniotic fluid levels and helps carry nutrients to the baby.  However, if you are drinking contaminated water, the more you drink, the more the fetus is exposed to the harmful effects of those contaminants.

Water quality has been headline news lately after it was discovered that the public drinking water contained lead in Flint, Michigan.  If you’re pregnant or know someone who is, you may be wondering if it is safe to drink tap water while pregnant.  Here are three contaminants you should test for if you’re pregnant and drinking tap water.

  1. Lead

Lead poisoning is a serious concern during pregnancy.  Lead can be found in old water taps and outdated plumbing.  As water travels through and sits in these pipes, it can absorb lead.  If a pregnant woman drinks this water, her body then absorbs the lead which can be passed to the fetus.

While lead may not cause serious harm to a pregnant woman, the fetus can suffer lasting damage from even low levels of lead exposure. As the fetus grows, lead causes blood cells to become deformed, preventing them from functioning properly. Lead also damages the peripheral and central nervous systems causing learning disabilities as the child develops. Children affected by lead also tend to be shorter than other children and may have trouble with their hearing.

  1. Bacteria

Water naturally contains bacteria, but in excess amounts it can be harmful, especially to pregnant women.  E. coli is a type of bacteria that is occasionally found in the water.  This is the same bacteria that is known to cause food poisoning, and it has the same effects when it is in your water. It can cause stomach cramps, vomiting, diarrhea, and fever, all of which can put a developing fetus at risk.  Bacterial contamination can also be an indication of other contaminants such as protozoa and viruses which are linked to dysentery and hepatitis.

  1. Pesticides, Heavy Metals, and Chemicals

Lead poisoning and bacterial contamination are the most dangerous water contaminants for a pregnant woman and her baby, but there are other pollutants that are also concerning.  Both municipal water and well water can test positive for pesticides, heavy metals, and other chemicals.  While in low amounts, they may not be especially harmful to the pregnant mother, any exposure can pose a risk to the developing fetus.

Make Sure Your Tap Water is Safe

If you’re pregnant, the best way to make sure your drinking water is safe, is to test it.  Whether you are drinking tap water, city water, well water, bottled water, or even filtered water, all are at risk for common contaminants that can harm a fetus.  You can send water samples to a lab for complete analysis, but this can be costly, and it often takes weeks to get results. A faster and easier solution is a home testing kit.  Most kits will give you results in a matter of minutes.   If you’re pregnant, don’t take chances with the water you’re drinking, test your water today.
