Actually, this is a very useful site for a number of reasons, not least of which is its access to fishing permits and information on potential flooding. You should also be aware that there are some highly questionable websites on the web which offer to sell you EA licences but which are actually a rip-off, charging you much more than you actually need to pay. The right hand link will take you straight through to the government site where you can be assured of paying the correct licence fee and not a penny more!
