|License to Fish
Fishing is just one of the many forms of relaxation people do
these days with either friends or family. It is a time for
bonding and a great escape from the pressures of daily life.
To be able to fish, a person needs to get a fishing license
since this is requirement by law and the regulations regarding
fishing varies from one state to the other.
In some states, 2 licenses are needed. One is called the
Conservation license which is a prerequisite before one can
obtain a fishing license.
Getting a license to fish is quite different from the time a
person needed to get a drivers license. The person does not have
to take an exam or get a student's permit before being issued
The Conservation license can be obtained from the Fish, Wildlife
& Parks or FWP. This is done by giving one's social security
number and other information that is requested. A valid driver's
license or any valid ID with photo must also be presented for
security purposes for the license to be processed.
The fishing license allows a person to fish or possess any
aquatic creature as long as it is authorized by the state's
fishing regulations. This license is neither non-transferable
nor non-refundable and is only valid for one year or season.
Since fishing licenses as mentioned earlier vary from state to
state, a fishing license can either be a resident license or a
non-resident license. For one to qualify for a resident license,
that person must have resided in that certain location for a
period of time such as 6 months, should be a local tax payer ,
must be a registered voter, purchased a vehicle and have a valid
driver's issued from that state. In addition, one must not
possess or apply for any resident hunting, fishing or trapping
privileges in another state or country.
A non-resident can fish in another state as long as the person
is accompanied by someone who resides in that state.
There is no age limit for anyone to acquire a fishing license.
People both young and old can obtain it. Usually a person who is
below 11 years of age can get a fishing license for free. People
who are older than that have to pay a certain fee to acquire it.
With the paper work in proper order, one can just grab the
proper gear, a boat and start having some fun being close with
