FLY FISHING -- It's time for anglers to inventory their equipment needs and surpluses in preparation for the annual Fly Fishing Gear Swap, May 18 from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. at Silver Bow Fly Shop, 13210 E Indiana Ave. in Spokane Valley.

The first step to the success of the swap relies on anglers bringing in their used gear to sell, said Sean Visintainer, Silver Bow owner.

"So we need you to rummage through your closets, garage, your fishing buddies gear, etc. and bring fly fishing equipment to sell that you no longer want! Obviously it needs to be in good working order and be worthy of reselling (I WILL and DO turn away gear that has no resale value). But I know lots of you have gear that you don't use so please bring it down... the week before the sale."

Read on for detals on selling and buying gear, and note a few changes from last year.
