Rod Licence

Don’t forget to purchase your rod licence before the start of the season:-

Valid EA Link


From the Environment Agency:-

Dear all,
We have come across a website claiming to sell rod licences on our behalf

They advertise themselves as an application checking service, for which an additional administration fee is payable to the company.

We have no agreement with this site to sell licences.

In addition, anyone using this site to buy a one or eight-day licence is not asked for the date when they want to start fishing. This is critical to obtaining the correct short-term licence.

From our investigations it would appear that whilst this site is not breaking the law except possibly on Intellectual Property (IP) by using our logo it does have the potential to mislead the public into believing that this a sanctioned EA site and that we condone what it does.

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

  • Anglers can just as easily buy a licence on-line at and without paying an additional administration fee;
  • Anglers can also buy their licence over the counter at their local Post Office branch, by phoning 0844 800 5386 or by direct debit;
  • The personal and financial data supplied to us is secure.
  • An angler can go fishing immediately after completing the transaction process with us

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