I love flyfishing both freshwater and saltwater. Sadly, the demands of family life have limited my fishing trips to dedicated vacations. Before the kids came along, I would regularly spend an entire weekend day flyfishing for trout.
I recently attended the Eastern Vstrom gathering at the IronHorse Motorcycle Lodge in the Smoky Mountains, and I took the flyfishing gear along. What an awesome place! I rode the world-famous twisty roads on Thursday and Friday, and I found a beautiful spot to wet a line on Saturday.
I have aquired a lot of very nice flyfishing gear over the years, but I picked up an LL Bean travel rod combo (two complete outfits, fly and spinning rods and reels in one small package) for motoflyfishing. I have to say that the fly rod and reel far exceeded my expectations for the price; great balance and feel.
Here are a few pics from the trip:
