Beware Buying your Fishing Rod Licences !

 

 

IMPORTANT WARNING:

A website came onto the scene in 2011 that looked like the official website where to buy a UK fishing licence from. It even had the Environment Agency logo at the head of the page and the text and layout fooled a lot of people into purchasing a licence through them and paying an unnecessary administration fee for processing it. Below are some of the URL's (website names) that these people have used. Beware as they may now be using another website name.

 

What this site is doing, offering to apply for fishing licences for people and charging for it is not illegal;, but I consider it a rip off.

 

Don't be taken for a ride - The information that you enter on the form on these websites is the same as you would provide on the form on the Post Office website; the difference is - the Post Office don't charge you !

 

A UK FISHING LICENCE CAN BE  PURCHASED FROM YOUR LOCAL POST OFFICE, BY TELEPHONE OR ONLINE.

THERE IS NO ADMINISTRATION FEE WHEN BUYING A UK FISHING LICENCE YOURSELF.

 

 

DO NOT USE ANY OF THE FOLLOWING WEBSITES

 

Active  2017

rodfishinglicence.co.uk

or

www.rodfishinglicence.co.uk

 

 

These below have disappeared but could return !

You may even see it listed on Google with a PHP extension like below

http://www.rodlicence.net/ prices.php  or   www.rodlicence.net/ application.php

 

 

see below what they were charging in 2014 / 15

 

Note: these website URLs (web addresses) on my site have purposely not been linked to the websites

 

these sites also used to sell SEA Fishing Licences - - which were / are non-existent

 

 


These sites will apply for your Fishing Rod Licence and charge you £20 on top for their services

AND IT'S LEGAL

 

£25 for a £5 Fishing Licence . . . What a rip off for youngsters !!!

 

Remember  - you do not need to pay an administration fee for applying for a fishing rod licence.

 

 

 

Buy your Fishing Licence from your local Post Office

or

www.gov.uk/fishing-licences/buy-a-fishing-licence

 

 

 

If you come across any site offering this service I advise ignoring it and using the link below

 

The official line from the Environment Agency is as follows:

We do not endorse this service. We are not associated with the website;

Anglers can just as easily buy a licence on-line at www.gov.uk/fishing-licences/buy-a-fishing-licence without paying an additional administration fee;

Anglers can also buy their licence over the counter at their local Post Office, by phoning 0844 800 5386 or by direct debit;
The personal and financial data supplied to the Environment Agency is secure.
An angler can go fishing immediately after completing the transaction process with us.

We will be writing to the website owners to request that they remove the rod licence image, which we have not given them permission to use.
