HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) – The Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission may change a rule that says anglers have to display their fishing licenses on a hat, vest, or other clothing.

A proposal adopted Tuesday by the commission’s board would instead require anglers to have their license in their possession when fishing and show it to a waterways conservation officer when asked.

Anglers could keep a copy of their fishing license on a mobile device.
