Russ Miller of Fishpond joins Trout Tips this spring to offer some great advice on getting ready for the summer ahead. And the first thing Miller recommends is checking your gear as you prepare to head to the water.
As Miller notes, if your fly rod is your truck, your fly line, leader and tippet are your tires. Check them first. Clean them. Make sure they’re in good shape for the coming summer. You’ll have more fun—and more success—if you’ve done your due dilligence and ensured your line, leader and tippet are ready to connect you to trout.
