I keep several years of the old booklets with the regs in it. Just to see if anything changes and in the laws. Good idea to keep the old free reg books that are free when you get you license.

1) Get your regulations book out.
2) Open your regulations book.
3) Read your regulations book cover to cover.
4) Read it again so it sinks in.
5) Read it again because I still don't think you could get it.
6) If you still do not understand, sell your gear.

Yup each trap will need a tag.

Don't most rat floats violate the "No visible bait from the air" rule? I've never used them, but every pic I've seen has bait sitting on top. I'm guessing you could cover it somehow.
