Packable Fishing SetupContributors to this thread:
Looking for recommendations for a packable fishing setup for an upcoming AK moose trip.
I’d look at going with a 2 pc ultralight rod and a small spinning reel. The rod, broken down, should come close to fitting in with your arrows.
I’ve taken this pack rod twice to Alaska. A few spinners and an ultra light reel.
I would look at 3 or 4 piece rods and a small spinning reel.
Spin or fly?
Why not a fly rod? Lots of options there. Ask you guide what you can fish for that time of year. I would suggest an 8 wt if the silvers are in and a 4 or 5 wt for grayling and trout.
There are also travel spinning rods that pack down the same length as a fly rod. I have several spinning and casting travel setups that work very well.
Eagle Claw spin/fly pack it travel rod and spinning reel and fly reel.
Many options out there but there are some with their own case that break down really nice to where they're very packable either on your back or on a horse/mule.
dynamite is a lot smaller.
