What do you think about a system with two kinds of licenses ? A license like we have now or basic license with no changes.. And then a advanced license where the applicant has to complete training on species identification, wildlife management, safely handling , de hooking, and releasing fish. Angler must carry release tools and report all fish caught on an app. Angler must make themselves available for interview or questionnaire. Angler must also pay more for license. Reward would be a more generous season, special permits or limits. Any violations of fishery law would eliminate angler from having advanced license..
So is it a outrageous idea or would some serious guys be willing to put the time in to obtain the advanced fishing license?
