Salmon and sea trout angling licences for 2021 now available in Ireland

Inland Fisheries Ireland has announced that there will be no price change for salmon and sea trout angling licences in 2021, and that licence fees will remain the same across all classes, including those for juvenile anglers. IFI made the announcement as it reopened its salmon and sea trout angling licence sales for the 2021 season. E-licences can be purchased online and the licence is delivered along with a logbook straight to phones or computers. Gill tags will be dispatched by post.

Anglers are legally required to be in possession of a licence and logbook when fishing for salmon or sea trout, and for anglers who are planning to venture out early, and they require tags on or before January 5th, then their online licences must be purchased on or before Monday, December 21, 2020. Online licences must be printed off along with the logbook and in the possession of anglers while fishing.

Alternatively, angling licences will be available to purchase in approved licence sales distributors from the end of December/ early January. For those anglers who do not require tags in advance of January 5th, online licences and logbooks will be available from the online shop throughout the Christmas period.

Anglers are advised to comply with Government guidelines specific to the region in which they live and wish to travel to. IFI has published updated advice for anglers which can be found on IFI's website. Anglers are also reminded that due to Covid 19, working arrangements for distributors and fisheries may have changed,which anglers are advised to check before travelling.

Francis O’Donnell, CEO of Inland Fisheries Ireland said: “We are happy to announce the opening of 2021 licence sales for salmon and sea trout angling. We would like to use this opportunity to recognise the contribution salmon and sea trout anglers make to the sustainability of the resource by paying their licence fee and supporting the Salmon and Sea Trout Rehabilitation, Conservation, and Protection Fund as a result.”

The costs for salmon licences will remain as follows:
All Districts (i,. all Regions) Annual: €100
Juvenile (under the age of 18 years) All Districts Annual: €10
