More than 1,000 fishing enthusiasts have purchased Minnesota's new walleye stamp that went on sale March 1.

The stamp, though not required to catch and keep walleye, is available now at all fishing license outlets. Proceeds will support walleye stocking. The stamp validation is $5. For $2 more, the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR) will mail the actual artistic collector's stamp to your home.

"This is an ideal year to start a walleye stamp art collection for you or your children," said Steve Michaels of the DNR's License Center. "With a single purchase you support walleye stocking, acquire a piece of history and can begin a low-cost, life-long hobby."
