Picked up my license this am. New rule:

You are no longer required by law to display this license on your clothing, but you must carry it on your person.

BTW, still cost $28.50

See you on the water.

Now,the question is how often will we law abiding anglers who keep our license in our wallet, be asked to show it?

I've been fishing Maineb and Mass. regularly for many years and I can't remember the last time I was asked for my license by the man.

Oh, well, you can get them online now too, so it is super easy.

Oregon's fishing lic (with all the required tags for steelhead, salmon, etc.) will set you back about $36.00 for the year. Short term out of state'ers actually get off quite inexpensively. Tourist dollars rule! Also been a long time since the OSP checked my license.

Last time fellow came down to the beach and was checking the people fishing he looked at the two spey rods I had over my shoulders and said something to the effect that 'anybody whose got that kind of money invested, has got a license.'
