Do I need a fishing license in Cyprus?But if you are thinking of going serious fishing, with lots of different rods, reels and lures, tons of bait to cast all day and next day too, I strongly suggest you get the license.
If you are going to fish from the shore, Yes, you will need a licence. But, if you are on a holiday and just wanting to have some light fishing fun, you won't need it. It's alright, as you are just enjoying catch and release, sea and sunny day.
