New Recreational Fishing Rule
Already drawing scores of criticism from the recreational angling community is the new Federal requirement. For most of human history fishing has been a right and not a privilege. Of course any time there is a change in the normal way things are done there will be objections. I personally do not think that it is very unreasonable to ask that one at least registers to take fish. I think it could go a long way towards understanding all the factors that affect fish stocks. To find out how this affects you go to http://www.countmyfish.noaa.gov and click on the Angler Registry link, or call 888-674-7411 from 4 a.m. to midnight daily.
