The Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission (PFBC) is encouraging anglers to vote online for their favorite fishing license button for 2020!
Choices on this year’s ballot are a solid color vintage green, or a fish skin design depicting the colorful scales of a pumpkinseed sunfish. The selected button for 2020 will be available for purchase on Dec. 1 through the PFBC’s online store - The Outdoor Shop - and at more than 700 license issuing agents across the state.
Online voting is open now through Friday, September 13 at noon using the following link:
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 long as the angler is carrying a valid paper license, a valid button is the only display requirement.
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.
