Rules on state fishing license and purchase of fishing card (day card)
All anglers between the ages of 18 and 65 must have a valid national fishing license in order to fish in Danish fishing waters. Children under 18 and pensioners are allowed to fish without the state fishing license. The only exception to the purchase of national fishing licenses is the so-called put-and-take lakes.
You must have purchased the fishing license before you start fishing, and the sign must be valid for the period during which you are fishing. The fishery inspection periodically does spot checks and if your fishing license is not valid you will be fined. The money that the state gets into the sale of the fishing license is 100% spent on releases and research in modern fish care.
