Quick Sips

  • I renewed my stack of fishing and hunting licenses yesterday. I fish regularly in Connecticut and New York with occasional forays into Massachusetts. That requires a stack of permits (and $s). I bought the CT license a few weeks ago when I fished the Farmington but had yet to get to the others. Online license sales are a godsend given that it isn't easy to buy a license in three states no matter how small those states are. Of course, the states are concerned about false statements in these documents given that no one is sitting inspecting your ID. Massachusetts takes the cake for best warning about false statements:

    A couple hundred dollars of licenses
    By clicking on the 'Enter Sales' link, you swear under the pains and penalties of perjury that the information in your customer profile is accurate.

    "Pains and Penalties of Perjury!" That sounds serious. But my first thought was, "Who talks that way?". Of course this is the "Commonwealth" of Massachusetts and I swear I saw folks wearing those goofy Pilgrim hats the last time I fished the Deerfield River. They probably still use the stocks for punishment.

  • Fresh Coffee in the woods. Its a dream. A mirage. A fable. I've eyed the Jet Boil device in the Eastern Mountain Sports store a few times. It's probably one of those toys that would never see the light of day. But damn, fresh coffee streamside....YUM. . Reviewed over on Arizona Wanderings.
