Anyone heard of the need to obtain a fishing licence to sea fish in spain?unless your with a tour operator that is

 

apparantly you need to pass an exam and it can take a month for the licence to arrive?

Google it and you need a regional fishing licence.

Unless otherwise stated all posts are my personal opinion

yeah its not very clear, it says something about an international licence being ok

 

does that mean i can buy a rod licence from the uk? it seems odd just to fish in the sea

I'm no fisherman but I doubt that any UK licence will be of any use in Spain. 

 

 

I suggest you read spanishfishinglicence.com

looks like if you have an international licence it does away with the need to pass the exam

Na you need for shore and boat and inland waters, inland waters fair enough, but there’s Talk on one of the sites of passing an exam and then quite a wait and hassle To get the paper licence

On the matter of rules.

I pal of mine owned a house in France for many years, his neighbour explained the differing attitude between the French and the English to rules thus........

 

We French love rules, but only obey the ones we like, or see as sensible.

 

You English, you hate rules, but obey every single one without question

 

A pretty fair assessment don’t you think?

fwiw ...and what do I know .....

I obtained the two year Andalucia region shore fishing Licence direct from the local official offices in 2018. Took a two hour faff & wait, was about e8, showed my UK EA fishing licence (ignored), no exam. 

Most of the tackle shops would provide same for e30. No evidence of exam seemed required although it is stated. Suggest ring a local tackle shop & discuss or contact a local expat boat fishing group or charter boat operator. 

Guardia would enjoy impounding you, tackle & smart canoe - your choice !

I have fished off the beach in that area for many years and never had a problem, always purchased the bait from a bait shop in Empuriabrava who never mentioned anything about a permit or license requirement...
