When I was a kid I would spend hours climbing over rocks and trees, crossing the river 4 or 5 times to find the perfect fishing hole. I don’t think I ever came back with a fish but I do remember having a blast. If you are interested in casting your line, you can do it sans fishing license this weekend.
June 3, 4, and 5, 2011 have been designated as Free Fishing Days in Virginia. No fishing license of any kind will be required for rod and reel fishing in freshwater or saltwater, except in designated stocked trout waters, on these days. Plan some time to go fishing and boating; take the family fishing and boating or learn to fish and boat! See our Where to Fish section to get started! [via Va Dept. of Game and Inland Fisheries]
