The new fish that will feature on the 2019 fishing licences have been revealed.
The Environment Agency released the new designs created by angling and wildlife artist David Miller.
He painted the images that appear on the new fishing rod licences with the bream on the two rod coarse and trout licence, a mirror carp on the three rod licence and a sea trout on the salmon and migratory trout licence.
Kevin Austin, deputy director of fisheries at the Environment Agency, said: 'We're delighted to reveal these new images as part of our continued drive to encourage people to give fishing a go. They celebrate three of our much loved fish species and we know that many anglers enjoy collecting these wonderful images.'
Angling is one of the most popular participation sports in England. A million fishing licences were sold in 2017/2018 raising £23 million.
