|Thank you to everyone who voted in the Commission's online ballot to select the color for the new fishing license button. We had 6,571 votes tallied with blue as the selected color with a tally of 1,894 votes, followed by green as the runner-up with 1,351 votes. For those of you interested in knowing how the other colors ranked in our online ballot, check out the attached graphic.
Each custom button will measure 1 3/4 inches (same as past, vintage buttons) with a high-quality pin-back design and features the angler’s customer identification number (CID), same as the number displayed on a paper license. As a result of a recent regulation change, as long as the angler is carrying a valid paper license, a valid button is the only display requirement.
The purchase of an annual, multi-year or lifetime fishing 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.
Once available in March, this optional button will be $5 each and available for purchase through the Commission’s online store (The Outdoor Shop) at www.GoneFishingPa.com.
