Fishing and Hiking in the Flat Top Mountains
I've been reading some blog entries recently about fishing while on a hiking trip, what kind of equipment to pack, and where to go. I came across this video which documents a small part of a hiking and fly-fishing trip in the Flat Top Mountains in Colorado. These guys seem to have a great time, and their rods don't seem to be very heavy or extreme, and still the make some catches. I'm thinking more about getting into fly fishing, as opposed to a spinning reel, so that I can take it with me on hiking trips and get to have a relaxing, fun experience both hiking and fishing!

@fallingwater its definitely a fun way to fish, get outdoors and hike I think! @mcgraffy yeah since theyre small lakes and a lot of rivers it seems like most fly fish. plus fly fishing equipment is often better to pack and carry
