21st August 2017
Buy your sports fishing licence now.
Your sports fish licence number from last year (2016/17) is: 123456
Thank you for buying a licence last season. We’re making it easy for you to get your new season fishing licence through the Fish & Game online ordering system as from 21 August 2017.
Your licence fee contribution enables us to improve your angling experience through improved access information, freshwater habitat protection, population management, and encouraging young anglers to take up sports fishing.
Get your licence early to avoid delays – buy your new licence now. It will give you more time to get ready for opening and the season ahead, and leave time to do other things.
To buy your new licence now simply click here.
Enter your 2016/17 Licence number with your date of birth into Returning Customer and click on Find my details. You will then be able to select the Licence Type you require and confirm your understanding of the Terms and Conditions. Your existing details will then appear for any updates or changes required.
If you are buying for, or as, a new customer, just follow and answer the prompts about who it is for (resident/non-resident), confirm the season and the licence category, then enter the personal details.
Or, if you don’t want to do this online, then visit your nearest Fish & Game agent where you can sort out your waterproof gear, line, flies and lures AND get your licence online through them all at the same time.
Licences purchased online will be supplied as an attractive, durable plastic card. Plastic licences will be mailed within five working days of being ordered. You will also be given the 2017/18 Sports Fishing Regulations guide booklet.
If you haven’t already done so, you can subscribe to our free monthly email newsletter Reel Life by clicking here to keep up to date with all the latest news and information from around the Fish & Game regions. You can also find us on Facebook and YouTube.
Your copy of the special fishing edition of the Fish & Game New Zealand magazine will be sent to you free in the following week. Enjoy the read and share it with friends.
Remember to take special care when boating or wading through water and follow the Code of Conduct set out in the Sports Fishing Regulation Guide.
Make the most of your angling opportunity and tight-lines.
