A fisherman describes the preseason rituals he undertakes in anticipation of each fishing season. He goes through his fly boxes and throws away any flies that did not catch fish and repairs leaks in his waders. Having enough gear will help you to catch fish, while too much is cumbersome.
There’s a moment in late winter when it’s suddenly time to start, thinking about the fishing season. For me, it’s usually toward the end of February, with a week or so left in the last small game hunting seasons. Then, believe it or not, there’s only a month or six weeks until trout fishing starts. With any luck, that is. Here in Colorado, we don’t have a closed fishing season, so we don’t have an opening day.
