I believe fishing is foraging. And it is a human right to feed yourself .
Was discussing this yesterday and it was brought up that maybe shooting rabbits for food was also foraging and therefore you shouldn't have to have a gun lisence. But that doesn't work because guns have other uses (recreational defence etc. ) But a fishing rod has an expressed purpose (fishing, foraging for food) and it should not mean you need a lisence to use it. No more then lisencing your hands for picking natural vegetation for food.
Anyway decide for yourselves. But I believe this man knows his rights and I think the judge before she left she room agrees.

Fishing? Well, a fishing rod couldn't possibly be construed as a dangerous weapon. I think the license required for fishing is most likely to prevent over-fishing.
Rabbits? Well they breed quicker than fish and in a place like Australia they are a pest and need to be culled.
