I was hiking out of Upper Wilson's today, back to my car, about to die -- sweating and sore. A Game Warden pulled over. He was very polite. "Do you have a license, sir?," he asked.
"Yessir, I have it somewhere, but I'll have to look for it," I replied, gasping. "Lemme sit down here for a minute or two." I staggered to a boulder and sat down.
He looked at me through his sunglasses and finally said "I don't think that's necessary. You're fly fishing with expensive stuff. Looks to me like you probably have a license."
"I do," I managed.
"Do any good?," he asked.
"Three or four decent little ones."
"Did you keep 'em?"
"Of course not."
He laughed and said "Well you have a good day, then. Want a ride back to your car?"
"No, thanks. I'll be fine."

Yeah, I generally get ignored when I'm fly fishing. It's been years since I've been checked. Last time was on the Tuck. I held up my blaze orange lifetime license while standing in the middle of the river, the warden on the road yelled "Good enough." and drove off. :D

Phil,

And he didn't give you any sort of field sobriety test like your encounter a few months back.
