The Council will consider the use of pools and ponds on public
open spaces for fishing by local clubs. As an angler its
is important for you to know that anyone aged 12 years or over who
fishes for salmon, trout, freshwater fish or eels in England and
Wales must have an Environment Agency Rod Fishing Licence.
A rod licence is a statutory requirement (in other words it is
required by law) and entitles the licensee to use a rod and line to
fish. Rod licenses are issued by the Environment Agency. They
differ from permits (often referred to as tickets or day tickets)
which give permission to fish a particular water or waters and are
issued by fishery owners, angling clubs and so on.
