ishing laws and license requirements.
I presume you are talking coarse fishing? The laws even for that are pretty draconian. Fisheries protection.....You need to visit the town hall or some such place and apply for a licence. You can't even fish off the pier without one. Anyway, depending on where you go, there are byelaws etc etc. Of course there are close seasons; some locations are club only, more so than in the UK for example. In Britain you can just turn up at a coarse fishery, pay a day fishing rate, and cast your line. Here it is more complicated, but that doesn't seem to put of the mob of Silesian fishermen (who of course are fishing an empty acidified lake simply to get away from their wives)
