Rod Licences
Unlike England and Wales there is no national rod licence in Scotland. In England and Wales an angler needs to get a licence issued by the Environment Agency as well as permission from the owner of the fishings. In Scotland anglers need only to be be in possession of a "written right or permission" from the land owner.

Salmon and Sea Trout
This is an absolute must if you are fishing for migratory fish (salmon and sea trout). The law is very strict and waters are watched by Water Bailifs who have considerable powers. Don't risk it!

Brown Trout and Coarse Fish
The requirement to carry a permit if you are fishing for brown trout and coarse fish is a little more complicated. It depends on whether the water is covered by a "Protection Order". Most of the Tay catchment is protected including the main stem of the Tay, Loch Tay, Lyon, Dochart, Fillan, Connonish, Lochay, Braan, Almond, Tummel and Earn. Protection orders do not extend into tidal waters, so there is free fishing below Perth.

Sea Fish
No permit is required for sport angling at sea.
