Seeing that equipment functions perfectly is just as 1m. portant to a fisherman as good physical condition is to a touted 20-game winner or the team's "big stick." Getting gear in shape after a winter's layoff Is vital to the success of early trips afloat. If you don't, you're likely to discover all sorts of problems . . . and all at the wrong time. While most of us were ad. monished to prepare our gear last fall, such good advice has a strange habit of falling on closed ears . .. particularly if the geese were flying. So haul out the tackle box NOW, white you have the time. Thoroughly clean reels, re. lubricating according to the mak. er's specs ... but use greases sparingly. Check lines for signs of weakness; snip off 10 feet of monofI lament, if you haven't al. ready done so. Remove that fly line from the spool and hang in loose colls, if even for only a short period. Lures should be touched up with paint, if needed. Hone hooks to needle sharpness. Polish spoons and spinners llk« fine silver — if they don't take a bright shine, replace them. Though reels are the most critical elements in tackle, in. spect rods carefully. Look for loose wrappings, ferrules and reel seats. Observe carefully the condition of the tip where the line rubs against the guide; any Indication of furrowing calls for immediate replacement. Plenty of soap and water, mix* ed with a generous, portion of old > fashioned "elbow grease," Will do the job on most other items. Spring conditioning prevents excuses. Get started now!
