Lots of us buy licences on-line or direct others to do so prior to taking them out fishing.

The first hit that you will get if you search for "fishing rod licence" is an ad for "https://www.onlinefi...licences.co.uk/".

I don't know whether you would actually get a licence if you used this site but I suspect that you will - but you will pay a significant handling fee.

 

Be sure to use the official .gov web page to order your licences.

It's £30 for trout and course.

Its a known scam site. The cost of a 3 rod coarse license is £45. (I know i bought mine the other week).
This site charges £60 for the same license.

Go through the environment agency and they direct you to the legitimate site.
