Fishing has enjoyed a long history in Redruth and still remains central to local culture. The sport of fishing naturally slows your body down and lets you unwind - it's just a bonus if you are lucky enough to bag some fine fish on the end of your line.
Take some tips from local fishermen before you pick your spot, but whether you choose a rocky outcrop or bob off the coast on board a traditional fishing boat, you can cast away your worries and appreciate the waterlogged landscape as you wait for your dinner to snag its bait.
Redruth offers the cyclist a great variety of cycling from quiet country lanes, which meander through picturesque villages and ancient harbours, to more challenging off-road routes which explore the depths of the Cornish countryside. From the genteel Camel Trail and Coast to Coast Trail, which are ideal for those with young children, to the challenging North Cornwall coastal road which provides some of the steepest gradients in the county.
