fly-fishing need not be com-plicated or expen-sive. Trout gear can
always be tested out on an obliging school of kahawai down at the
river-mouth. This is great fun - even if most of the blighters seem to
toss the hook after a jump or two. Trout gear, particularly reels, must
be carefully flushed with freshwater and sprayed with penetrating oil
after even the slightest exposure to salt spray or the corro-sive
effect will be ugly and almost instant.
