Fly fishing in the wilderness is an escape of the highest degree and we hope to give stories, tips, and advice so that it becomes more meaningful for everyone. As Henry David Thoreau said, "I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived." Hopefully you'll enjoy getting back to nature.
The backcountry experience can vary, from a river that is fifteen miles in on a rocky, bumpy dirt road that you then need to hike a mile or more to get there to a week long excursion into bear country. Along this spectrum are some basic skills that everyone should be aware of and that's our hope, to give everyone the opportunity those basic skills so that they can enjoy the most of their time in the wilderness!
Basic safety in the backcountry is going to be different that safety concerns when not in the backcountry! When you fall and potentially break your leg, it's a lot different when you have cell phone service and when you don't! First aid and emergency/survival prep and kits are basics that everyone that ventures into the backcountry should be aware of!! We'll cover this and try to give you plenty of resources to cover these basics!
And more, from fishing techniques and advice to destinations that everyone should visit at least once, we'll try to make your trip into the backcountry the best one ever!
As always, Good Luck and Guid Luck!!
