Great thread. I don't tell many folks this(why increase the competition?). I ride single tracks in Idaho then hike into lakes. Fishing can be fabulous. I use an inflatable Alpaca Raft---4'pounds,tough as nails. It's no toy.It gets me to places under cliffs that may never have been fished before. Maybe.

The Narrows is what we call it. Fish Hatchery at each end.
I have gear but haven't fished for .... a long time. Just seems a waste of time and too much frustration when I'm not catching anything.... which is about 99.9% of the time.
Do you get up to Slate or Cedar Runs?

Nope. 99% of the time we just ride down to penns creek and fish since its right there. If its too high or muddy we'll hit paradise and or fishing creek.

I feel ya on not catching anything. Took me years to even catch anything otta the creek. Id get SO frusterated Id feel like tossing my rod into the creek.

I love fly fishing off the bike. At it's worst it's casting practice and a nice ride.

I even bought a fly rod holder for a Kayak that I can temporarily mount on my panniers. That way I can leave the rod built as I ride to different sections of the river. Then when I head home or back to camp I break down the rod and store the rod holder in my panniers.

Recently I bought a fly rod holder for Kayak's that I can temporarily mount on my panniers (suction cups). That way I can keep the rod built while I ride to different sections of the river. Then when I head home or back to camp I can break down the rod and stick the rod holder in the panniers.

If I find a long straight clearing next to the river I may even try trolling.

Great thread, hope stays active! I live in the frozen north shy of the Yukon most of the year, with a little ice fishing and fly tying to keep me occupied.

Loved chasing Mahseer on the rivers, by fly, in northern Thailand, 4 piece 7 wt strapped to the mirrors;

Which alpacka raft do you have? I'd would be awesome if you have some pics.

Great thread

I've been doing moto-fishing since I started fly fishing some 7 years ago. Mostly in Virginia, but plan to get out more this year.

Previously on the VStrom, searching for native brookies in the central VA mountains.



And the native brookie.... great, wild fishing. That fish is just above the water (you can't see the water surface), but since then I've decided against handling them if possible - minimize the stress and sustain the wild population.





Waders, etc. take up the topbox. This is the best arrangement, I still need to build a lockable PVC tube to slide in behind the side bag opposite the exhaust. VStrom traded out for a Tenere.



Rainbow from another river in VA.....a friend made the fly in that fishes mouth, made it even better...

The cheap cabelas rod tube I got has the interlocking zipper to lock it like regular luggage has.

Of course like anything, if someone wants it bad enough, they'll get it. But will deter most opportunists and give you a little piece of mind.

Gorgeous fish btw

Glad to see this thread is still going. I've begun stocking up on new flies for the trout season here in wi, and reading a great deal about fly fishing over the winter. Can't wait to get out on the water. I bought a different bike for this season (triumph tt600) and need to figure out how I'm going to carry all my gear.



Not the most practical bike for motoflyfishing, but the heart wants what it wants.

Looks like the wife will be away a good portion of the summer again, so I should have lots of time to get out fishing.

Great thread, and in reality, fly fishing is what brought me to this website. My thinking is that since I want to do multi-day excursions of camping and flyfishing on my bike, this will be the best place to get info on motorcycle camping...a cornucopia of experience to read and learn from.

I've been fly fishing for a number of years, building my own rods and tying flies. The idea of doing it from the bike seems perfect. The only downside I see is that I can't figure out how to mount a kayak to the bike. Yet.
