Licences and Permits

“If you are sea angling, you don’t need a licence or permit… unless you’re after salmon or sea trout, when you will need a game licence. For game fish you will also need to observe the bag limits and tagging practices of the fishery you are on. Fishing Northern Ireland’s public freshwaters for game or coarse fish means by law you will always need a rod licence issued in Northern Ireland. It’s straightforward to get one online and at local tackle shops and various distributors. For waters outside public control you will also need a permit from the owner, most often an angling club or private individual. A separate license and permit is needed for each additional rod. You cannot buy a permit or day ticket without a rod licence. ” Short term and tourist rod licence – here Buy licence permits and river bush day tickets – here For more information on licences and permits visit NI Direct.
