Voters Choose Brown Trout Pattern for 2017 Fishing License Button

HARRISBURG, Pa. (Nov. 17) – The Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission’s (PFBC) popular fishing license button will continue the trout theme in the upcoming year, with anglers selecting the Brown Trout pattern for the 2017 fishing season.
As it’s done each fall, the PFBC turned to anglers and asked them to cast their vote online for their favorite button. When the votes were counted, 30 percent picked the Brown Trout pattern. The Rainbow Trout pattern was close behind with 23 percent of votes, followed by pink camo with 18 percent of the votes. In all, more than 2,100 votes were cast.

“The online survey continues to be a fun way for anglers to stay engaged,” said PFBC Executive Director John Arway. “Last year we introduced the Brook Trout pattern as a selection and anglers clearly liked it, with about 70 percent voting for it. This year we added two more trout patterns and the pink camo option. As the votes showed, it was a pretty tight race between the three.”

Buttons go on sale December 1 and are available for $5 each. They can be purchased through the PFBC's online store (The Outdoor Shop), PFBC regional offices, and through the network of more than 900 license issuing agents.

Individuals must purchase an annual or multi-year resident, non-resident, senior resident, or senior lifetime fishing license in order to purchase a license button.
Children 15 and younger can also purchase a button if they first buy a voluntary youth license for $1.

Brought back by popular demand in 2014, the buttons resemble ones offered by the PFBC in the 1930s, 1940s, 1950s, and again in 1974 and 1975. Each custom button measures 1 3/4 inches with a high-quality, pin-back design and features the angler's customer identification number, the same number displayed on a paper license. As long as an angler is carrying a valid paper license, a valid button is the only display requirement.
