Haven't done much fishing in the last couple of years since I sold the boat. I'm not to partial to banking it. However, I did purchase a non-res KY license for my $50 and am going to use it. Broke out one of the big rods yesterday and found out I haven't lost the touch. Was able to throw real close to my old range almost from jump street. Not quite as accurate as I was, but lets blame that on the wind.
