Take Care When Buying A Fishing Licence.


Recommended Posts

I just had a look on line to find the current fishing licence fee. I noticed on the search engine  menu the following  website: www.fishingandrodlicences.co.uk/  .

They charge a commission when you buy a licence though them. Don't get ripped off, use the proper government website:   

"Buy a rod fishing licence - GOV.UK"   https://www.gov.uk/fishing-licences  otherwise you will be charged £15 commission on top of the £30 for a coarse and trout two rod licence.

I almost got suckered into this one as well but my Yorkshire genes kicked in when I saw the price they were charging.  I thought the government was supposed to be doing something about sites that offer the same services as GOV.UK  sites, but which charge a commission for their totally unnecessary services.  Obviously not!.

Guess what. I got caught!  Haven't been fishing since I was about thirteen or fourteen,  so having bought a share in Moonlight Shadow and with the opportunity of spending more time on The Broads, I mentioned in passing to my brother-in-law that I was thinking of buying some tackle and he gave me a rod, reel and other necessary bits and pieces.  I went on line and not realising where to get I licence from, Googled getting a fishing licence and this website was top.of the list - http://www.fishingandrodlicences.co.uk/‎ . 

I duly paid my 20.00 for an eight day licence to cover our holiday and to date, still havent received anything, despite requesting it to start on 29th September.

Rest assured, the same mistake will not happen again.

When you buy online through the government website you don't have to wait for the licence to come before you fish. Just carry a copy of the online receipt.

Also, your name and address is on the EA authorities as having a fishing licence even if you do not have a copy of acceptance. All you need is to supply proof of identity.

It is a bit worrying that those scam websites will have all your card details too if you use them.

I fell foul of this upon renewal for this year so I contacted them and got a refund of there charges
