Hay sasho, how's Bulgaria this time of year? I've had my Alpaca rafts for several years. They weigh about 4 lbs & are inflated by a super light nylon sack. I've used branches for oars when I didn't feel like packing my 3 piece kayak oar with me. I just googled the rafts, there seems to be 2 spellings,"Alpaca" & "Alpacka". They are sold from Alaska . They are TOUGH (they haul moose meat out in them in Alaska--in pieces of course). Really work well. I use'm in backcountry Idaho (USA-big mountains) and go places in them few have ever gone before(it's way too far back in to carry waders & float tubes,etc). Good luck and they are not cheap. Great rafts tho.
Oh yeah, I do have pictures but have remained too stooped to know how to post them. Google,lots of picts.

Bulgaria now is in a cold spell, although it was unusually warm up until now... I was told this by my mom--I live in Missoula, MT pretty much year round.

I have been looking at these rafts for a while, and am trying to decide which model will fit me best--the Denaly Llama or the Yukon Yak. I am 6', 190lbs, and 32 inseam.

I love to go riding and pack my spinning rod around Montana, and it would be fantastic if I had a boat option too!! Although with the bike (or any vehicle) I would be restricted to lakes. Still nice though!!

In the mountains of WV right now. Got my line wet in the Williams river. Didn't catch anything but still a great day. Below freezing and snow so in the Jeep and not on the bike. Eyelets kept freezing up on me. Kinda hard to cast. The mrs took some pix and I'll post when I get home. Hopefully some of fishies too. Also NFS LO checked me for liscense. Probably first for him this year.

Enjoy roaming around North Georgia on the steed looking for waters that have not been decimated by locals with a DNR release schedule and a full can of corn.

Looking forward to Spring.

Aaaaah! Two of my great passions(there are seven); motorcycles and fly fishing. Hope to intertwine both this spring. Great thread, glad I found it!

Regards

Rod

I've been dreaming for this scenario to go to AK on my own for 30 days solo...

motofishing

Hey more people out there doing the same. Riding to good fishing spots. I really should be doing more day rides to get out. So far just been doing week long camping trips. Meet a friend to fish North of Campbell River, BC. We set up a base camp and then explore the many lakes in the area. Going to post some pics Definitely subscribed.

I will be doing some moto-fishing this spring for warm water species with my 4wt fly rod. I'll be riding my new ride and fishing with all the new flies I tied this winter.

Are non-fly fishers allowed to post in here?

I have always fly fished but am getting back into spin because its just to dangerous for me to be in the water with my injury. I am hoping to get back inti fly fishing eventually but for now I just need to feel that little twitch when you
Know there is something on the end of your line.

Looking forward to your trip report, please share! I spent 9 years at the Elk Falls mill, and found the north of Vancouver Island an outdoors men paradise.

Nice Nymphs VanXR, obviously a fellow fly tier A nice hobby to enjoy during the mild northern winters.

As long as you say ten "Hail Orvis's", we can accept your confession of non-flyfishing, but you will always be a second class fisher until you renounce your spinning ways and return to the path of light and goodness.

Of course you're allowed to post. Fishing is fishing. I can relate to your situation, though in reverse. I took up saltwater flyfishing because I injured my shoulder and after the surgery I couldn't even think about casting a surf rod. I took an 8wt the beach to see if that would work and my surf rod has been hanging from the rafters ever since.

Woohoo wi early trout season! Hopefully I will be getting out this weekend to throw some flies around. Sadly, I can't take the bike though as the roads are in no shape for 2 wheeled travel.
