can totally see how you'd want a daypack with you for something like thatWhat if you hike miles in to a spot, set up camp, and wade up a river and explore creeks flyfishing for 4-6 hours? Lug your regular pack with you while you fish? I gotta carry water, sunscreen, energy bars etc and some misc supplies. These things get as light as 2oz.
i haven't brought a fishing rig with me on a backpacking trip since 1987 but i have a little handline kit i put together that will fit in my pocket and am looking forward to trying it out on my next trip
used to fish a LOT so its sort of bizarre to me that i've let that fall completely out of my backpacking agenda
really looking forward to turning over rocks next to the creek and drifting whatever bugs i find there down into a shallow hole
or sinking some powerbait down to the bottom of a lake
