The following are new visitor testimonial for some of our visitors making new or return visits to Portugal using the services provided by Tightlines-Portugal.

The fishing in Portugal is so fantastic!    

Roy and the Wigan gang going home happy anglers!This is the second year we have fished with John and he looks after us so well that we will be fishing with him every year from now on.

Ireland is finished for us, the fishing in Portugal is so fantastic, with thousands of hard fighting carp in perfect condition (from the dams), good barbel fishing on the river and accommodation and food is very good, the Portuguese people are very friendly too.

What really impressed us that for a week we only saw two other anglers and they just passed us by whilst they were spinning for bass. We had miles of water to ourselves and not knowing either the next bite would be from a 1lb carp or from one of over 20lb.
