The VISpas is the proof of membership of a club. You will receive lists of fishing waters where you are permitted to fish. You must be a member of a club in order to obtain the VISpas. If you are not yet a member of a club, you can buy the VISpas next year at the fishing club and/or angling shop in your vicinity.
If you are under 14 on 1 January, you can fish using the JeugdVISpas or youth permit. In addition, you do not need a document if you are fishing with one rod under the supervision of an adult who has a valid written permit.
If you fish in a limited number of waters (mainly large rivers and shipping canals) using a single rod and designated types of bait, the Kleine VISpas will suffice. It is available for €14.00. In late November, Kleine VISpas holders will receive a letter from Sportvisserij Nederland concerning the Kleine VISpas. As before, anglers can apply for the Kleine VISpas via the Internet. Sportvisserij Nederland will issue additional information.
