Ghent-Terneuzen Canal - Netherlands

Gent-Terneuzen Canal

Welcome to the Kingdom of the Netherlands! The Dutch are perhaps the luckiest people in all of Europe, living among some of the most beautiful natural landscapes you could ever imagine! And yet, to utter surprise of any ordinary tourist, a true angling spirit would choose the highly industrialized urban mystique of the man-made Ghent–Terneuzen Canal, preferring it as a primary attraction among all the oasis-like natural tranquility. And no wonder. Constructed in the beginning of 19th century, the Ghent–Terneuzen Canal nowadays runs 200m wide and 32 km long, while serving as a navigable passage for large vessels between the Dutch port of Terneuzen and the city of Ghent in Belgium. But what’s most interesting is the variety of fish inhabiting these deep murky waters: from Common Bream and European Flounder to Thicklip Grey Mullet, Ide and European Eel...just to name a few! No wonder this waterway is among the country’s main attractions for avid feeder and float anglers!.

The eastern bank of Ghent–Terneuzen Canal is well-known and loved by all anglers for the marvelous fishing opportunities it offers and the vast variety of fish inhabiting its slow moving waters. Overlooking the distant urban landscape, this particular spot is located closer to the sea and the port of Terneuzen. Here, the fresh salty breeze only adds to the overall unparalleled industrial charm of wind turbines on the opposite shore, that can be appreciated by contrast to the pristine natural wilderness most anglers are usually accustomed to. The reed grown shores, the dry midsummer grass under your feet, that new powerful rod in your hands, the meditative allure and calm mystique of these deep murky waters...what else could a true angling spirit wish for? Indeed, the countless fish species inhabiting the canal’s deep waters include Common Roach, Ide, European Eel, Common Bream, Thicklip Grey Mullet and plenty others that are too many to list.
