Fishing here a big part of Yukoner's visit

It would be very sad if Alaskan fishing licenses became harder for Yukoners to get. I and many of my friends make the trip, leave a good amount of our funny-looking money in town, and take home very small numbers of salmon, like two chum each or less. Many buy tons of tackle and beer and get no fish! I’m just saying that as much as I love your community (nice people, the best beer ever), I won’t come as much if I can’t fish.
