THREE THINGS:

STAY DRY.  The rains of spring might challenge anglers, but a good set of wet-weather gear will help extend outings and make tough days tolerable.  Check your rain coat and pants for holes, tears and wear and make sure they’re ready to go out of storage.

GET IN LINE.  New line on reels this time of year allows for better sensitivity, less memory and a stronger connection with fish.  Swap out old, frayed or beaten-up monofilament and superlines now before the fishing season starts in earnest.

ANCHORS AWAY.  Check your connections to boat anchors and be certain clips close for a secure lock.  Look over ropes, remove knots and make certain that they are in good shape to keep your connection firm.  Replace old rope if necessary.

Stay Sharp!
