  •  It is cheating your state.... (12+ / 0-)

    Licensing fees provide much needed revenue in most states for management of public lands and waterways. Essentially, by buying a license, you are helping to fund fishing opportunities. A state like Wyoming, which has few residents and legendary trout fishing, needs those Non-Resident licensing fees. So it may not be the biggest deal, but it's a shitty thing to do if you value the sport of fishing and have respect for your fellow sportsmen and sportswomen.

    One quibble:

    That's apparently where we're going to be drawing the line now, with the Cheney clan; you can drum up support for a badly premised war, you can violate international prohibitions on on the torture of prisoners, and you can shoot a guy in the face because confused him with a six-inch bird, but you do not lie on a fishing application. You monster.
    A great many of us would have drawn a different line for the Cheney clan, but unfortunately, we didn't have a choice. This is not one of those collective failings, but something, that for better or worse, can be laid directly at the feet of our government officials.
