France advice needed
Posted 29 July 2004 - 03:19 PM
A friend of mine is taking her 15 year old son to France very soon. He is a keen angler and wants to go fishing. BUT: does he need a licence? What is it called (in French?)? How do you get one (if needed)? Does he need something else for trout? Any advice gratefully received.

Security is another thing to think about, I have heard lots of stories about wheels, radios etc being stolen especially from "foreign cars", an easy mark and difficult for the victim to report it. These thefts were mainly from Carp anglers as they spent a week away from the car bivvied up.
As for licences, BEFORE you buy your licences, check that there is room for you to fish and I don't mean with the person that is selling it, go and look around the water! Once you have your licence stamped thats it so if there is no room to fish then you have wasted your money
Been there, done it but never bothered with a Tshirt.
I hope your friend and her son have a magic holiday, it must be great to have a son to take fishing
