Anglers will no longer get a paper rod licence or permit. Instead, they will get an electronic record (e-record) with a unique reference number. This may be in the form of an email or receipt. Customers can still buy their licence, permit or day tickets (including concessionary disabled licences and permits) online above or from a DAERA authorised distributor.
