Preparations March is an odd month, a time of changeover from the last of the coarse fishing to the first of the trout fishing. Some gear is cleaned, oiled, put away; other gear is exhumed, greased and cleaned. Normally I conduct the relevant chores throughout March but this year I've been so hard-pressed at work that I've had no weekend, nor yet an evening, to spare for the jobs. It was only yesterday that I began the process of pimping old fly-lines, checking splices and servicing the reels ready for (God willing) another trout season. This process has become a mighty labour, largely because I use reels and lines for river trout fishing, stillwater trout, sea trout, saltwater; add different densities of lines (particularly for stillwater fishing) and you're looking at a couple of dozen separate tasks. The days when I carried one much-used floater and one equally serviceable intermediate are long gone. Perhaps I should revert to that simplicity.
