Oh yes these are for use here in KY and IN fishing plus a few I've sent to the great states of TX, LA, and PA. I did managed to get out once on Dale Hollow in Dec with a friend and do a little float & Fly for smallies. Been in the local rivers in Feb and March trout fishing. Best this year was an 17 inch rainbow, which is a decent trout in our area.
Got skunked last weekend, I guess I wasn't holding my mouth open the right way, least that's what I've been told. Which, by the way, I intend to have down pat by the time I hit the Plane to Costa Rica.
Heck if it rains hard enough tomorrow to nix working I might just pull the canoe out and go fer a spin.
