Have rod. Will travel.
I travel all across the country in a Roadtrek class B camper and nearly always have a couple of rods with me. The cost of out-of-state fishing licenses does limit fishing unless I plan to stay long enough to make it worthwhile.
Why isn't there a reciprocal fishing license so if you buy a license in one state it would be good in others? I would pay extra if I could get one.
In lieu of an all encompassing reciprocal license, some states do offer reciprocity with each other. Just check the state agency website (you can get to them from here: http://www.takemefishing.org/select-a-state/)
Another thing, most states offer a few free fishing days each year, this might be a good time to plan a family trip and try fishing somewhere new. Here are the free fishing days: http://www.takemefishing.org/nfbw/
I also wanted to add, because a lot of folks don't know... the funds from licenses sales actually go back into conservation programs. That's one of the cool things about fishing, when you participate and purchase a license, you actually help with the upkeep of the lakes, rivers, boats ramps, parks, etc. that you enjoy.
