To the Editor:
I hope that the State Legislature will do the right thing again and vote in opposition to the adoption of a saltwater fishing license. As a life long resident of the State of Maine I have enjoyed the liberty of being able to salt water fish free of charge. This is one of the last recreational activities we can enjoy at no cost and I view it as being a benefit of living in this great State.
If they want to charge a fee for non residents or visitors to fish as some other states do then I would not be opposed to that.
I suggest that the Legislature find a way to control spending and perhaps (dare I say this) cut taxes instead of raising money, by eliminating a tradition we value, to compensate for their own inadequacies.
