The dirty truth

How to Fishing with a rod?

You may need a fly fishing rod licence to fish for salmon, trout, freshwater fish, smelt or eel with a pole and range in:

  • England (except the River Tweed)
  • Wales
  • the Border Esk region of Scotland

You have to always carry your rod licence when you’re fishing or you might be prosecuted.

You can be fined up to £2, 500 for fishing without a pole licence.

Children under 12 don’t need a licence. However, for a young child under 12 fishing and keep the pole or assistance hold it you must get a licence for yourself.

Forms of licence

There are 2 types of licences:

  • trout, coarse fish and eel licences that allow you to catch non-migratory trout, char, coarse fish, eel and smelt
  • salmon and sea trout licences that let you catch salmon, sea trout and all sorts of of the seafood in the licence above

Amount of rods you can use together with your licences

The maximum few rods to fish with is based on the sort of water and seafood.

Kinds of seafood Rivers, streams, empties and canals Reservoirs, lakes and ponds
Salmon, trout and char 1 pole 2 rods
Coarse seafood and eels 2 rods (or 4 rods in the event that you buy a supplementary licence)
