2 Steps Closer to Being Ready for My Florida Fly Fishing Trip
When you are going on your first salt water fly fishing trip you tend to forget how much actually goes into it. this weekend I got a couple steps closer to being ready for the trip.
I didn't realize that it is important to re-line your reels with salt water line and it isn't as important if you aren't going to go a lot or if you aren't going for long. I may not be going for long but I didn't want to risk it and I will be salt water fishing more I am sure so having the line works. So this weekend I was able to get my stuff taken care of and got some great salt water line on my Orvis Hydros SL reel. Also while I was there I landed an awesome lanyard that the rep for Orvis gave me. His wife designs them in Montana and also has other things like a tippet tool that was neat too. The lanyard is more feminine and girly, turquoise style with sterling silver beads. This is to carry nippers, clamps, float-ant, etc.
I am that much closer to being ready for this trip and of course I am over prepared... or maybe I am not. I still need to make sure I have enough flies and a collapsible stripping basket, as well as many other things.... wish me luck!
