With the dog days of summer nearly upon us, June and July are the perfect time to hit the Appalachian trail in Virginia for a short day trip, or a longer backpacking trip.
Perhaps the most important thing you will need for a weekend of fantastic fishing in the Shenandoah is a fishing license. A worthwhile investment for every member of your party, whether they are fishing or not, all Virginians benefit from the conservation and economic activity generated by anglers. Fishing alone is responsible for more than $1.3 billion in economic impact in the state. You can conveniently pick up your license online at www.dgif.virginia.gov/licenses/ or in person at any licensed dealer.
