    Hey guys,wondering if anybody can tell me wether or not I should throw a pack rod in my pack when I take off for 10 days the end of september hiking in after dc001 caribou.Gonna try to get up towards big indian and If theres any fish to throw in a mountain house or two id take it along.Otherwise I'd be happy to leave the weight no matter how minimal behind.

    Never been where your going. However I always take mine whenever hiking. I haven't fished a mountain creek yet that I didn't catch grayling for mountain house enhancement........

    When we go caribou hunting out west we ALWAYS bring a rod and tackle, as we have never gotten shut out yet, either rainbows, lakers, dollys, pike, something is in every stream it seems

    how bout a can with a line wrapped around it and a spinner? An ice fishing rod can be cast suprisingly far as well...
    I choose to fly fish, not because its easy, but because its hard.

    Default Always!

    I have learned over the years that if I dont take a rod I will wish I had brought one. I bought a 6"6 rod with a very tiny spinning reel - the pole pole breaks down to 4 peices, so the entire set up weighs nothing, and packs away anywhere.
    Bring it!

    kinda what I was thinking too....Thanks for the input.Was hoping someone might know for sure about the availability of fish in this particular area(12 miles in ressurection pass out of hope then heading 6-8 miles west of trail).Im sure if I didnt pack it I would be dissapointed as such is my luck.Thanks again.
