Little Things To Save Time
When putting your 4 piece rod together start by putting the tip section together with the piece next to it and the handle section together with the piece next to it. Then join the two halves of the rod. This will make it so that you don't have to put the rod handle on the ground while you put the tip section on, which is what invariably happens when you start with the handle and go up and can sometimes result in breaking the tip or scratching the rod butt.
When rigging your rod remember to double the fly line and thread it through the guides rather than trying to thread the end of the leader. It's just easier and faster to thread the thicker fly line. Once you have the doubled fly line through the last guide at the rod tip you can grab the rod handle and cast the rest of the front of the line and leader through the guides with a couple of quick casting strokes.
Try putting your waders on at home if you live close to your fishing spot. This is a great thing on cold days and helps to prolong the life of your waders by not having to do the wader donning dance, stepping all over on parking lot gravel, and getting it in your boots where it rubs holes in the bootie soles all day. Today's Gore Tex waders are so comfortable you might as well not ever take them off. Yeah, I'm weird that way.
Just a few actual tips today to help you to start your fishing day off right.
