the fishing trip

Northeastern Pennsylvania’s Pocono Mountains are perfect for hunting and fishing in the spring. That’s why Tom, Jim, Burt, Jerry, and Wally decided to go there on their annual trip.

At 4:00 a.m. on Saturday, they arrived at their favorite spot, just off Route 115 in Bear Creek Township.

They unloaded all their equipment, food and beer, and everything else they needed from Tom’s truck.

After a long, quiet first morning, Wally reminded them, “We desperately need our licenses, boys. Pa.’s fresh water fishermen require a license. Where are they?”

There was dead silence for an unbearable length of time. Eyes rolled sorrowfully.

  1. Good story, Larry. I would guess young kids are the only ones who can get away with fishing without a license. My dad fished for many years and I remember seeing his license. That’s serious business for a state and I’d guess there’s a serious fine if you don’t pay attention. Well done. 🙂 — Suzanne
