    Pennsylvania ’s 2006 fishing licenses are now on sale and when you give one to friends and family as a holiday gift, you know they’ll fall for it hook, line and sinker. That’s because in Pennsylvania great fishing is always just a short cast away. It’s all about convenience these days whether it’s grabbing a bite to eat, paying bills or even determining how to spend your spare time. That’s why fishing is the perfect choice. Not only can you spend time in the great outdoors with family and friends - good fishing is always just a short cast away. In fact, you’re never more than 30 minutes from a great fishing destination. Purchasing a fishing license as a gift has return benefits for the giver as well - a guaranteed fishing partner. You can even buy fishing licenses from the convenience of your home and print them out from your own computer - the only line you need to think about is monofilament. Simply visit the Pennsylvania Fish & Boat Commission web site at and select “The Outdoor Shop.” To compliment your fishing license purchases, the Outdoor Shop offers great stocking stuffers like subscriptions to PA Angler & Boater Magazine , “Fish Pennsylvania” shirts, books, patches, posters and more. So add a little something extra! If you prefer to buy your license at a store, the “Fishing” section of the Commission’s web site at also contains a list of bait, tackle and department stores that carry Pennsylvania fishing licenses as well.
