									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 one.

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 nature.
