Today we continue our mini-series on the truths of fly fishing – tips, rules and guidelines that apply to fly fishing all over the world.
Over the years, fly fishing guides have built up knowledge on not only the many technical aspects of fishing, but also on the logistics of consistent good days on the water. Keeping a clean boat helps everybody – not only does a clean boat mean fewer obstructions for fishing and moving around in the boat…it just makes everybody feel better! Tidy is good.
One simple rule to help keep your boat clean is that trash goes in the cooler. When you finish your sandwich, your soda or your third Snickers bar of the day, just tuck the waste inside the cooler. It’ll go away at the end of the day, you won’t have a mini-dump in your coat pocket, and your guide and your fishing partner will thank you.
