The Fish and Boat Commission is encouraging anglers to vote online for their favorite fishing license button for 2017. The deadline for voting is October 7.
The PFBC re-introduced the availability of an annual Pennsylvania fishing license button in 2014. Brought back by popular demand, this custom button is similar to the vintage buttons offered by the PFBC in the past.
Each custom button measures 1 3/4 inches with a high-quality, pin-back design and feature the angler's customer identification number (CID), the same number displayed on a paper license.
As a result of a regulation change, as long as the angler is carrying a valid paper license, a valid button is the only display requirement.
The selected button for 2017 will be available for purchase on December 1 through the PFBC’s online store - The Outdoor Shop - and license issuing agents across the state.
The purchase of an annual or multi-year fishing license or voluntary youth license is required in order to purchase a license button. The purchase of a button is not a requirement in addition to the purchase of a license.
In addition to the color choices for voting, based upon the public’s selection and 70%+ popularity of 2016’s Brook Trout button, the PFBC has also provided Brown Trout and Rainbow Trout button backgrounds as button choices.
