Punxsutawney Phil recently predicted an early spring and just the thought of the coming spring usually sets the mind of dedicated fly rodders reeling [no pun intended] with thoughts of the coming fly fishing season. If this describes you then now is the time to start making your plans, especially if those plans involve a trip to a new place. However, even if your upcoming fly fishing adventures only consists of day trips to your favorite local fishing hole now is the time to make certain that you have what you need to make the most of each trip.
