Check Your Ancillary Equipment!

Well we all should have wet a line by now!!.  The tip this edition is on the ancillary equipment in your surf bag.  Is it in top working order? Not the reel ..or the line...or the knots.....the other STUFF.  How are the batteries in your light???? How are your needle nose pliers........rusty??  How is the little bottle of insect repellant...dried up??  How many sinkers do you have? .... are they appropriate?  Did you ever buy that hook sharpener like I advised??  Did you replace that bait knife that ripped your bait apart last year?  All these things are part of surfcasting and you will ache when you need these items and they are deficient or not at hand.  Luck is when PREPARATION meets Prepared...Please practice CATCH AND RELEASE.
