What you need to go fishing legally

To fish legally in Northern Ireland you need a permit or day ticket plus a rod licence. The permit gives the angler permission to fish in the chosen water while the rod licence is for the fishing rod and the game or coarse fish you're allowed to catch. You cannot buy a permit/ day ticket without a rod licence:
