So what did I forget? Have one rod and one reel. Enough so long as nothing goes wrong. Best pack another set, but which ones? Decided on a decent reel I have no love for and a seven and a half foot fiberglass light weight I kinda do like. Problem solved? Problems are never solved, they simply evolve.
Then there's all the lure making stuff. Blades, wire former, buck tails, etc. I know I've missed something but I'll be damned if I'm treading through all the crap again.
Yeah, packing for three months involves a lot of preparation. Just writing these words makes me want to throw in a couple of fly rod setups just in case. Or maybe pack the waders. Yeah, the waders. I can just see me now, ball deep in the bay, humming a happy tune, when along floats a jellyfish. Then another, and another till I'm surrounded by the slimy buggers. My waders aren't breathable. In a panic I just might fill them to the knees with bodily fluids. Not good. Best sleep on it.
