Heading out in a small boat and dangling a line for mackerel is a quintessentially English seaside activity – like snoozing on deck chairs and tying hankies on heads. Boats can be hired all round the coast, but nowhere can mackerel hunting be enjoyed quite as effortlessly as from the lovely old fishing village of Beer in East Devon. Located in a gorgeous cove on the Jurassic Coast, you can wander down the steep slipway, chat to guy called Simon, and, for £20, simply hire a small motor boat kitted out with rods and hand reels for an hour or so. Simon will give you a few tips and off you go – trawl with the handlines out, cast a line, or simply bob around in Lyme Bay, soaking up the sun and the unique scenery. Keep your catch and cook it up at home.
