HARRISBURG, PA — With a new fishing season just around the corner, anglers can ready themselves for years to come by purchasing a multi-year fishing license, available for the first time this year from the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission (PFBC).
“Beginning December 1, we will start selling three-year and five-year fishing licenses for the first time in our history,” said PFBC executive director John Arway. “Customers want options when they buy products, and fishing is no different.”
“In addition, we’re offering a number of rewards exclusively for customers who buy a multi-year license, including a free, online subscription to our flagship publication, Pennsylvania Angler and Boater magazine, along with various offers from popular retailers,” said Arway. “Other incentives being offered are also pretty attractive. They include various pieces of fishing equipment and several discount coupons, which can be used at sporting goods stores.”
Customers who buy multi-year licenses save money by not having to pay transaction and processing fees each year. For example, a customer who buys a five-year license will save $6.80.
