Anglers old and new are being urged to buy a rod licence for the start of the new river fishing season next week.

The new fishing season on rivers, streams and drains starts on Monday (June 16),

Steve Chambers, an Environment Agency fisheries specialist said: “We are blessed with exceptional fisheries of national renown in this part of the country.

“The chance of encountering some exceptional fish is a significant attraction to anglers who should now be buying a licence to try their luck and skills on local riverbanks as the new season approaches.”
