Every year the new Fly Fishing buying guide comes out with lighter, faster, stronger and better tackle to trick a trout or a Marlin or whatever you are after. In the end it's the same fish in the same water eating the same diet of food. It's easy to get romanced in to thinking this tackle will make you a better fisherman when us old dogs know it simply isn't true. More tools and fancier tools won't make you a better cane rod builder either. I find that I have a few tools that are perfect for the task and many "must have" tools that I own should be better labelled as "must sell" as they simply collect dust. Buy good proven tools from reputable people. Do your homework and get one tool to do a job, master it and look after it. It's easy to have tool envy, but a new tool comes with no guarantee. Less is more, quality is the key and treat it with respect.
