OK I'm confused: Children can fish for free on July 15.........Those interested must pay a $10 fee and register by today.

It never said that it was a free event. Children can always fish license free, but the charge is for lunch and bait.

well it sounded that way to me until I read the 10.00 fee and I still think it sounds confusing!

It's a darn shame when you have to pay $10 to fish for free - - - - wait a minute - - - - is this what they call "inflation"? Now I think I get it - it used to be free but now it costs $10 to be free. What a clever concept!

T066J, that's funny!! But I hope it doesn't catch on....otherwise, we'll not be able to afford the free stuff anymore!

cag81625 yes it did. The headline of the article says "Children can fish for free on July 15"

I love it - - "we'll not be able to afford the free stuff anymore!".

Yep, that concept is going to have to be kept under wraps. I can see a passle of trouble coming down the trail on this one!
