Licence fees remain the same across all classes including those for juvenile anglers. An annual licence covering all districts costs €100 (€10 for juveniles under 18 years), while licences for single districts are €56 for the year, €40 for 21 days and €20 for a single day. Licences for the Foyle Area Extension are €80.
Anglers are legally required to be in possession of a licence when fishing for salmon or sea trout.
Licences should be purchased online by next Wednesday 18 of December to allow time for delivery before Christmas and the New Year. IFI cannot guarantee dispatch in advance of the holidays due to postage deadlines.
Online licences can also be acquired directly from your local IFI office or approved online licence sales distributors.
Angling licences other than online sales will be available to purchase in approved licence sales distributors from the end of December or early January.
IFI also reminds all salmon and sea trout anglers to return their 2019 angling logbook and unused gill tags as soon as possible, even if there is no catch recorded.
These returns will provide vital information regarding the status and management of our wild Atlantic salmon and sea trout stocks for the future.
Anglers are asked to use the business return envelope which was supplied at the time of license purchase. In the absence of the prepaid return envelope, anglers can return their completed logbook and unused tags to the IFI office address on their licence/logbook.
