Want to get into fishing? There's lots of information on the Environment Agency website, including byelaws and closed seasons.
Anyone over the age of 12 fishing in freshwaters must have a valid rod licence.
You can buy a licence online at the GOV.UK website or you can buy one from any post office. Find your local post office here.
The following licences are available online:
Money from the sale of rod licences helps fund the Environment Agency's (EA) work managing fisheries. If you are caught fishing without a licence you could be fined.
