KY Afield Outdoors: Why buying your fishing license is important

By: Lee McClellan

FRANKFORT, Ky. - It is the time of year anglers must make an investment in their future fishing. Current 2014-2015 fishing licenses expire this weekend. If you plan to fish on or after March 1, you'll need a new fishing license.

A Kentucky resident annual fishing license sets you back $20. This isn't as cheap as it was 20 years ago, but it is still a great bargain for all you receive in return.

"We do not receive General Fund state tax dollars for our funding," said Jeff Ross, assistant director of fisheries for the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources. "Our funding is reliant on license sales and the federal monies that go along with them. The anglers of Kentucky fund the fisheries division."

For each fishing license sold, the federal government sends monies back to Kentucky from excise taxes on fishing tackle, trolling motors, electronic sonar units for boats, commonly called fish finders, and boat motor fuels.

Savoyard's description of Col. Frank Lane Wolford


The card de visite likeness of Col. Frank Lane Wolford, submitted to CM earlier today by Mike Watson, brought to mind the description of that worthy gentleman penned by Metcalfe native Eugene W. Newman, better known in journalistic circles and to the world at large as Savoryard, in a word sketch of the Colonel written upon the occasion of Wolford's passing in 1895:
"He was low of stature, but powerfully built, with storage room for lungs of immense capacity and bulk. His face was smooth-shaven and his hair iron-gray. His eye was, possibly, a more prominent feature than his nose; it fairly glowed with perceptible fire, was as keen as hawk's, and like that of Marcius the Great, 'was able to pierce a corslet,' or 'gaze an eagle blind.' The nose was large and prominent, Roman, an eagle's beak, such as Napoleon delighted in. And yet this ideal soldier, this lion of battle, was the gentlest and the kindest man I ever knew. Angry he was never known to be except on two occasions, and then his enemies sought shelter, as well they might."
