I do have backcountry camping gear, although I haven't backpacked for 5-6 years. I wanted to fish a few streams, which is the main reason I wanted to camp in the front country. Plus, I didn't want to find all my crap, plan all my meals (front country = eating in Townsend!).
Thanks for all the info, guys. I'm going to have to plan a back country trip later this summer.
Jim, I would agree....fly fishing is a one man sport. But who doesn't love outfishign your buddy and rubbing it in a little. Good BSing with a buddy can make a trip!
