Good afternoon,
Was out and about this morning, picked up my 05 Fishing / Hunting combo, and a bran spankin new copy of the 2005 Oregon Sport Fishing Regs. (106 pages)
Page 43, and I quote;

Seems to be a descrepency here. No? But I love the part about no additional weights or attachments to line, leader or fly (including, but not limited to strike indicators) YES :hihi:
