This is just a reminder... Please take advantage of this opportunity! And, after the fishing bug bites, go get a fishing license! Lifetime resident licenses for freshwater fishing are still only $150 and the money from lifetime licenses is held in escrow and only the interest is used. So, you can keep helping our great fishing waters even after you are gone by purchasing a lifetime license! Think of it as an investment for our kids!

Thanks,
Kerry


FREE FISHING DAY IN ALABAMA

SET FOR SATURDAY, JUNE 9

"Free Fishing Day" for Alabama is scheduled for Saturday, June 9, 2001,
during National Fishing Week. Approved by the Alabama Legislature, a bill
allows a free day of fishing each year when residents and non-residents may
fish without a fishing license.

"Free Fishing Day is offered to introduce non-anglers to the sport of
fishing and to remind former anglers of the fun they've been missing," said
Stan Cook, Chief of Fisheries with the Wildlife and Freshwater Fisheries
Division.

Exemption of the usual fishing license requirement is statewide on that day.
Some lakes may still require fees and permits, and owner's permission is
required to fish private ponds.
