Honestly bro I would ask for more specifics. I personally think that greatly depends on where you are buying the fishing license at. I think personally that I would pay less for a Washington state license vs an Oregon license or Idaho, Montana, Alaska, or BC. Plus WFF is pretty popular. I would not be surprised if there were some officials on this website. Our answers would maybe do harm against us.This is a tough one. We are talking annual resident fishing licenses here.
I can't imagine not fishing so my number is pretty high. I hate to even think about this.
I think that fly flickers make up such a small % in your state that if officials decided to raise prices the majority would raise absolute hell.Yes. Absolutely. They are running a business. Crazy that you don't.
Intent versus impact. Your cute intentions often have the impact of unintended consequences. Something most of us see.This thread was really meant to be how important is fishing to you and can you put a price on that.
I think the intent was good, the execution however was pure shit.
They might be trying to reduce the number of fishers to reduce pressure on the fisheries. After all, we can all see that the pressure now is unsustainable, yet continues to rise. One way to reduce demand is to raise prices.The fees continue to rise as the opportunities continue to dwindle. Not sure where the logic is. Maybe I'm asking for too much - you know - the logic part. I just returned from Arlington Hardware with my shiny new freshwater license - $29.50. No punch cards, no Columbia River, no salt, no two rods (they call them poles). Plan on fishing the shit out of my local water until it closes again - probably in Sept. Pretty short, f-ed up season if you ask me.
