    In England and Wales all anglers are supposed to buy a rod licence for their fishing from the Environment Agency or Natural Resources Wales (the EA sell licences for Wales on behalf of NRW).

    Surprised nobody else has mentioned this, another angler whose books and articles I read as a teenager has sadly passed away.
