As the National Parks celebrate their centennial birthday this year, you might be thinking about heading out to fish in one.
Like many things in life, fishing is all about planning. Unless you've got the accuracy of a black bear, it takes a more than pawing at the water to catch your fish.
From what to wear for cold-water fishing to how to fill up your tackle box, the team at Fix.com, a spare-parts supplier for DIY home repairs, designed this checklist so that you can plan accordingly and float along in the best fishing trip of your year. Be sure to check out fishing permits before you head out -- they can vary depending on state requirements.
