Sant Feliu de Guíxols hosts the headquarters of the Maritime Fishing Sports Association.
The group brings together dozens of fishing enthusiasts to exchange knowledge and go on offshore sports trips.
The entity participates in several official championships, both national and international, and also organizes all kinds of fishing competitions with the active collaboration of the Yacht Club, which comprise types as different as curricà, sea-coast or fishing from the boat.
One of the main activities promoted jointly by the two entities is the Summer Fishing School, which includes both theoretical and practical sessions for students to start fishing or to improve their skills.
