By now, I have usually reminded my fellow fly fishers/fly tiers that it is time to inventory the fly boxes and gear in anticipation of the coming Trout season. If you fish during the Fall/Winter, as I sometimes do, your gear can be much divided mess of Steelhead, Salmon and Trout equipment/tools etc. I usually have to cull out the essentials for Trout fishing and then take an inventory of all my fly boxes to see what needs to be tied (assuming you tie your own) or purchased. That will also necessitate an inventory of your fly tying materials that you may have packed away last Summer/Fall.  Find that old checklist and get started. If you don’t, you will be scrambling when that invite comes.
