I am backpacking and fishing my way up to site #24 from Elkmont a week from Saturday. Should I just keep my pack on when fishing, or set it on the shore? What about my vest and net? I was thinking that I could just tie my net off to my pack and leave the vest inside of it just in case I need some tools/tippet etc. Should I bring my wading boots? If so, should I just keep them on the whole time? Thanks,
