fishing question

ive been fishing a couple of times on the mouth of the river and was wondering how far up i can go without needing a licence? also where would i get a licence if i needed one and if its legal to use traps

It used to be any part of the river that's tidal (Which goes suprisingly far inland on most rivers).
I haven't bought one for a long time cause my fishing is purely boat & pier now but if you need one your local post office should stock them.

apparently you can fish right up to the thames barrier without a licence, it used to be further up but they say the barrier prevents further upstream being tidal.

Does the river rise and fall? the laws changed a few years ago, so the best thing to do is ask in your local tackle shop if you are unsure.
