The first license that I ever had to buy was a Maine non-resident youth.
I don't remember exactly, but I'm thinkin' it was $3.50. That was a pretty big chunk of change for a 12 year old at the time and it took a substantial bite out of my spending money.
How about this...... when was the last time that you saw a fishing vest with a zip-off creel ? They all had them at one time
