One of the best things about backcountry fishing is getting rigged up in a remote camp with out the fear of other fisherman up or downstream of you. I think the walking is well worth it. You don't have to go too far to get away from everyone either. What I always liked to do was hike in the early a.m. while it is still cold/cool/no bugs on the water, set up camp, fish 'til dark and then sit and by the fire and think about what a great day I had. Wake up the next morning and repeat. If you like backpacking and fly fishing, the smoky's is a great playground.
