Grumpy McMurdo General

New Zealand sports fishing licences for the 2020/21 season are now available. The fishing season kicks off on October 1, 2020.

The stunning photo by Jaymie Challis of a boy and his uncle fishing at Butchers Dam in Central Otago on this year’s licence was the winning entry in Fish & Game New Zealand’s inaugural photo competition.

It is never too early to start planning your next fly fishing adventure. Licence prices for the 2020/21 season remain the same as 2019/20 season.

Ten different types of licence are on offer, including those catering for families, older anglers and people who want to try freshwater fishing for the first time.

All licence categories are available online from and via retail agents using the agency online licensing facility.
