I have reliable information that the new law prohibiting hitchhiking in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts was triggered by a rash of motor vehicle accidents they traced to one intrepid senior flyfisherman, who would wear his "bionic thumb" while walking along the side of the roads from one fishing hole to another.....said intrepid senior flyfisherman is now a fugitive from the law, with a multimillion dollar bounty on his head.....any information that might lead to the apprehension of this dangerous menace to society should be given immediately (and anonymously, of course) to the Massachusetts State Police

For the record, I have it on reliable infornmation....that the government, including all secret and semi-secret agencies....have reviewed all the data they have on me....they reportedly fell asleep...I think that I may be the reason why air traffic controllers are falling asleep.

Juro,

Thanks for posting that, very informative! Up until this moment I (like many others I'm sure) fishing around the NE thought that any reciprocity was granted by any state, only to other adjoining states - e.g. I reside in NY but can fish CT salt waters free if I hold the NY license - but - cannot fish RI waters since NY is not adjacent to RI. So I was planning on purchasing a Massachussetts license for this season, until just now...

cheers
Harold

Harold,

I may have passed on the intial confusion I had to you

As the MA SW permit is new in 2011, I went to look it up while at work, excited about the herring I saw during lunch. Google put me onto the link (above post) and I misinterpreted the Federal permit == state permit.

Bottom line = Feds need nothing if licensed in most states BUT

MA still wants their $10, period.

There fore if you are NOT licensed w/ SW somewhere other than Hawaii, Jersey, USVI or Puerto Rico you still DO have to get the FEDERAL permit.

WTF!

I've been using this

and this


but obviously your solution is slicker, although my choices were probably the result of a down economy.

Good idea.....and cheap!!! Thanks
Maybe we should start a contest predicting if and or how many of us are actually checked for possession of the permit. My guess is zero ( or maybe just Striblue).
