    I don't know Charlie... sounds sketchy. They all might get the plunker vibe and hide under the nearest trash filled logjam. Then, only Boot will manage to catch em.

    I am nothing, if I am not sketcHy, Jim.

    There are a lot of old fishing stories about catching a boot with gear.
    Perhaps I can tempt fate and tie a new fly pattern using old boot laces. Maybe call it the REDWING LAMENT.

    Charlie, orange is where its at these days. My cheap vinyl fishing license wallet is orange, has the name "North American Hunting Club" circling a Bald Eagle that is holding a hunting rifle and a bow and some arrows in its claws, has the saying "Preserve Our Hunting Heritage" written underneath that, and on the back side, says "Made in China."

    I got in in the mail for free, unsolicited! You can't buy 'em anywhere. You just have to wait patiently for one to show up. If you have bad fishing karma, then fuggettabouddit!

    But if you haven't pissed off the fishing gods, then its well worth the wait.
    This thing is oozing with juju.;)

    OB, if you will send me some of your hand tied flies for inspection I will assay them to see if they can thwart the "missing green license holder" curse.

    I do not have the green license holder and realize now I would be bored with all the fish I'd probably catch if I carried one.

    I hate to tell you this but they make more colors of duct tape than just gray now. You must not watch enough of the Red Green show. There may be time to save it yet and seal in all that good juju.

    Do you know how to work a cell phone? I think you just might be a good friend for OMJ to call.

    :D

    Just keep the thing in your wallet. No need to carry something you might forget sometime , being as old as you are.

    Well, my original assessment was correct. The ju ju is gone!
    Seems that the manufacturer of the ORANGE folder was not
    in sync with the orignial printer of the WDFW fishing license.
    The case is too small to hold the fishing license, punch card,
    list of river codes, Discover pass and WDFW access pass.

    But Mrs. Olive, Bless her heart, came to the rescue with an old
    plastic of some sort, perhaps vinyl, that will hold all but the Discover pass and the WDFW access pass. Since these will be assigned to my fishing vehicle anyway, I will just purchase a new and larger automobile to hold them.

    This new cover is also a plain black wrapper. Not certain how that will set with the fish. Green is such a natural color, and the fish seemed to have overlook the red lettering emblazoned on the wrapper.
    This may be the Harbinger of my fishing demise. I may have caught my last fish!

    Ohhh, Camo. Gorilla could be me. But then the fish would not see me and would not know to ignore me.


    I just knew that I would get a lot of helpful advice from this group.

    I'm getting a waterproof folder for my vehicle registrations and passes (car, trailers, insurance card, etc) that I can take with me when I park and go fishing. This way, my personal info is safe. I read a cautionary note the other day about the wisdom of not leaving any personal info in your vehicle. Car jackers will steal this info and attempt to use it to hijack your identity. (Did I just say "hijack?" Didn't mean to hijack the thread, but it seemed relevant, or else I'm just another old bastard:D ).
