How soon after buying my rod licence can I fish?
If you have bought a full licence for this season from the Post Office, by phone or on line on the Post Office website, you are covered to go fishing immediately. You will receive a till receipt (from Post Office branches) or confirmation email from the Post Office (for online or telephone purchases) to confirm that your purchase has been successfully processed.
If you have bought a one or eight day licence you can fish from the start date and start time stated on the licence application. Again, you will receive a till receipt or confirmation email from the Post Office to confirm that your purchase has been successfully processed.
Please note, some websites offer to process your rod licence application for you. There may be a delay between you applying to these websites and us receiving and completing the transaction. You must wait till you receive an email from the Post Office, confirming that the transaction is complete or until you have received your licence before you go fishing
