Elk NetworkAngler Cited, Wife Buys Own Valentine's Day Gift

General | February 16, 2018

A woman in Washington is going shopping after wildlife police cited her husband for illegally fishing. The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife Police posted the tale below on its Facebook page.

As they drifted by a riverfront residence on the Sol Duc River in a boat, Officer Davidson and Sgt. Rosenberger found three rods with lines in the water. The terminal gear was illegal as well. When the homeowner emerged from his garage, he readily admitted to being in the wrong (only one fishing pole allowed per person).

His wife told the officers to write her husband for everything they had, because he made a deal with her that if he got a ticket she could spend the same amount of money on something nice for herself. He was cited for the violations. (No word yet on what the wife will buy.)
