Cleaning up and organizing gear while at home this month I found my old backpacking fishing gear buried in the storage.
I gave up trout fishing while backpacking a long time ago simply due to the fact that cooking fish and cleaning up after in bear country became more of a chore than a pleasure. Never seemed to be able to get rid of all the fish smell which concerned me. Plus it meant camping near a stream rather than up high which I prefer. I do miss the joy of fishing a remote mountain stream but not the chores.
Anyone else given up on the fishing thing or do you still do it? Note I'm talking about mutli-day backpacking trips here not campgrounds or car camping where its easier to bring more supplies.
