‘CHECK LICENCE’ PLEA TO CLUBS AND FISHERIES
THE Angling Trust is appealing to clubs and commercial fisheries to help ensure anglers contribute to protecting fisheries by making it a requirement that members and day ticket customers have a valid rod licence to fish.
One of the most common complaints we hear from anglers is that they don’t get their licence checked and so they know people are getting away with fishing without a licence.
If every club and fishery joined in, we could help stamp out rod licence evasion and generate millions more to spend on fisheries within the Environment Agency.
If you need advice about how to do this, please contact the Trust on 01568 620447. Fisheries are being asked to help by checking for rod licences.
