I buy the annual French rod licence, that's because I fish seriously for about 4 months a year over there. It costs me 90 E. BUT for a bit of fun with telescopic rods or handline I cannot believe you'll have a problem without the licence. I've seen kids, adults etc on holiday having a go and I'm pretty sure they don't pay the money for a couple of hours in the sun with a rod. i have only been asked once by the Garde de Peche, but I am pretty obvious with 3 rods and loads of kit. Quite honestly I would just fish, or ask the nearest French fisherman. Most I have spoken to seemed to have no idea or no licence !
However LEGALLY you need one, but this is France !!!!
