12-16 years old can get free rod licences whether for coarse, trout or salmon.

Reminder – Free Junior Fly Fishing Licences

From the Environment Agency

Summer was made for fishing. Fishing teaches kids patience, skill, preparation, organisation and determination. It is an opportunity to spend calm and wholesome time with family and friends in the great outdoors.

Junior fishing licences are now free for 12-16 year olds – including trout and migratory licences. They still need to get a licence online but it is quick and easy.

Fishing needn’t be expensive. We support our partners, including the Angling Trust, in running free introductory courses up and down the country.
