RICHMOND, Va. (WWBT) — For one weekend in June, fishing will be free and not require a license in Virginia.

National Fishing and Boating Week is a time when many states offer a chance for fishing without the usual requirements.

In Virginia, the free days will be June 7, 8 and 9.

The event is to allow people who may not otherwise have access to fishing to get the chance and to allow children to be introduced to the activity.
