Non-Resident Tourist

 

PA Fishing Licenses – Non-Resident Tourist

In 1935, the first Non-Resident Tourist fishing license was offered and was good for three consecutive days of fishing.  At $1.50, it was a cheaper alternative than purchasing a full season non-resident license.  In 1948, the tourist license was extended to five continuous days of fishing.  The early tourist licenses are diffucult to find.  I know of only a handful of 1936’s and the one seen here is the only one I have ever seen that has the existing paperwork.  I have seen examples of all the buttons except the 1935.  I am always looking to add missing licenses to my collection.
