You have to figure out how to get a fishing license in a jiffy because your friends just called to let you know that the bite is on. You haven't been fishing in awhile, and you're not even sure you remember what it is that you need to do to get your fishing license… much less how to get it quickly. Although, you also know that you don’t want to miss out on the fishing fun this year, so you have to figure it out ASAP.
Relax, you've got this! You can either purchase your fishing license online or, in some states, you can also purchase your license by phone -- both methods are easy and affordable. Plus, you will have your license in plenty of time to make that upcoming fishing trip.
