    Does the VDGIF require a license to use a Gill Net?

    License is required by VMRC, the only place i know of that sells them are Dances sporting goods. They are seven dollars i believe, they will mail you the license if you want. They are good from Jan. 1 till dec31st.

    When you get your net pick up a few round five pound weights from wally world for a buck or two and tie to the ends of the lead lines. Get some good bouy marker for the float ends so you and others can see your net easily. The reason im telling you that is because a log came down river and got in my net and took it off never to be seen again. Now i use big floats so that it will not go under.
