To apply for an Angling Guide Licence, you must submit an application form and a proposed Angling Guide Operating Plan(s) (AGOPs) to FrontCounter BC. An AGOP outlines your angling guiding business including the waters on which
you propose to guide. Once approved, your AGOP(s) becomes an appendix to your Angling Guide Licence.
Individuals who are applying for an Angling Guide Licence for the first time must complete an exam which tests the individual's knowledge of relevant components of the Wildlife Act and regulations, the Angling & Scientific Collection Regulation and the Freshwater
Fishing Regulations Synopsis. For information about the exam, you may contact your local Government Agent office or the Fish & Wildlife Branch in Victoria at 250-387-9589.
