    Aye Harry Welcome to the fourms mate.

    ye wont need a Rod license mate but you will need a fishing permet for which ever river you fish on.
    Most beats will give day tickets But Sea fishing you dont need anything but a Rod and some bait.
    Hope thats a help.

    Cheers

    hello Harry,
    Check also with the Local Post Office for the area as they usually supply Permits too.
    Where were you hoping to 'wet a line' anyway Harry?
    Good luck anyway with your research
    Regards
    David

    Firstly I was actually thinking of trying to do some fishing in the Clyde river but it seems that it is not so healthy please to do that.

    So I was planning doing something in Loch Lomond where I will try to camp soon.

    and since I dont have a fishing rod here, I was thinking of doing the hobo style ;D

    hmm is it still illegal if I put the fish back to the lake?

    You see I have no intention to keep the fish.



    by the way I just realize that next to my name, it is saying "Hobo". I dont think that`s random lol

    Harry, welcome, mate, I've fished Loch Long many years ago, the best ragworm ever (up to 2ft in length), huge, is easily dug at Ardentinny, we used a fork where maybe six to eight rag would end up on the tines, would love to go back.

    hello HarryLFH,
    Both River Clyde & Avon right on my door step (stones throw BTW)
    Clyde stretch nearby IMO I wouldn't wet a line there but further along yes,
    definitely the Avon, a 15 minute bus ride & your on to another stretch of the
    River Clyde or the River Mouse 'Moose' (Scots word for Mouse, not a Moose as in Elk)
    River Calder. All wild Brown Trout, Salmon, Greyling fishing, off course there's
    also some stretches that cater for Course fishing. I posted details on the forum
    sometime ago 'Visit Scotland.com' Loch Lomond
    http://www.goscot.co.uk/east/fish_east/fish_chon.htm
    I've been there many a time Survival/Bushcraft Courses.
    I'm sure you will find somewhere to wet a line 2013.
    Regards
    David
