Fishing licenses for 2006 are now available. For your convenience, you can buy your license at Fairfield Glade, at either St. George or Dartmoor marinas. If you fish, the license is not an option unless you're younger than 13.

A smorgasbord of license types are available. For residents or non-residents, there are one- to three- to 10-day, annual or lifetime choices. There are licenses for youth, adults and for seniors, for persons who are wheelchair bound, disabled veterans, blind or mentally challenged.

Fees are very reasonable, starting at $5.50. And, they're a great bargain considering the hours or days of enjoyment you get in return. The joy of the catch, or the time shared (fishing) with a friend is . . . priceless.

Be a "legal" angler. Effective March 1, you're required to have a valid license for 2006. Without one, you might be "the-catch-of-the-day." This is a lakes committee "Lakes Update."
