PRE-TRIP FLATS PREPARATION

JAMES LAVERTY FROM FLY ODYSSEY AUSTRALIA TAKES US THROUGH HIS PRE-TRIP FLATS PREPARATION

It’s been said many times before that the only thing more exciting than actually experiencing a new fly fishing trip, is preparing for one. You can’t control the fish, the weather or the tides once you get there, but you can do everything possible before you depart to ensure that you are as well prepared as you can be, both on and off the water.

It may sound pretty bland and boring to some who prefer to wing it and see what happens, but the reality is that a little bit of well spent time in the weeks and months leading up to a fly fishing trip away with your mates, can be the difference in the end between a good trip and a great one.

For me it’s also about the excitement generated reading fishing reports, articles, tying flies, checking out maps, tide charts, moon phases and weather forecasts. The list goes on. In fact, it probably starts when you write down the words “fishing trip” on the family calendar at home and your other half has to acknowledge the golden rule - that if it’s on the calendar it’s a lock.
