Makes you wonder about all those expensive Montana fly fishing seminars for women - and whether a citizen’s arrest isn’t in the offing… In California it is a misdemeanor to shoot at any kind of game from a moving vehicle, unless your target is a whale. Idaho residents cannot fish from a giraffe’s or camel’s back. It is illegal in Ohio to get a fish drunk. Also in this state do not go fishing for whales on a Sunday, It’s a no, no. Don’t get caught catching crabs in Sarasota, Florida. In Oklahoma and Seattle, Washington it is illegal to carry a fishbowl or aquarium onto a public bus because the sound of the splashing water may disturb other passengers. It is illegal to catch a fish in Kansas with your bare hands. You may not catch a fish in Pennsylvania with any body part except your mouth. Also dynamite cannot be used to catch fish. Tennessee law says it is illegal to catch fish by lasso. (Too bad, it would make it so much easier to carry them back to the trailer park). It’s illegal to fish from horseback in Utah. In Muncie, Indiana it’s a crime to carry fishing tackle into a cemetery. It is illegal in Vermont to whistle underwater. (Not to mention pointless, stupid and down right impossible). Montana wins the prize in my opinion for stupid laws. It’s illegal for married women to go fishing alone on Sundays, and illegal for unmarried women to fish alone at all. It is also against the law for a man to knit during fishing season. This one is not fish related but definitely worth a mention… It is illegal to have a sheep in the cab of your truck without a chaperone. (There go my Saturday night plans). Across the pond Scotland- You cannot fish at all on Sundays. Liverpool, England- It is illegal for a woman to be topless in public except as a clerk in a tropical fish store.
