Default fishing food

I consider food more important than flies. As soon as I get to the river I am starving. Any food tastes better when eaten by a trout stream. I carry packs of Lance crackers, Moon pies, and M&Ms in my vest pockets. Snacks are
fishing gear.

Lance crackers are pretty hard to beat, and I usually have a couple of packs in my vest, along with a little dried fruit. If I feel like having an upscale lunch, I bring a bologna & cheese sandwich.

Cheese sticks, peanut butter and jelly (doesn't need refrigeration), chips, granola bar, Powerade, and any good dessert in a plastic container.

I don't like to carry a lot with me when I fish. I use to live on peanut-butter crakers for my day long excusions, they were light weight and fairly filling. A few years ago I was diagnosed with celiac disease (intolerance to wheat gluten), one of my first questions was what am I going to eat when I am in the mountains for an all day trip. It took a while but I found a bar called SoyJoy, they are very light, pack easy, taste pretty good, and satisfy that need to eat when out all day. Those of you who like to pack light may want to give them a try.

I like to pack Honey Buns and bacon in my buddy Adam's pack when he's not looking. Gives the bears a reason to favor him over me.

I like jerky and sometimes an apple for dessert.

I found the honey buns are lightweight Matt and it also explains why I see a lot of bears. I just thought it was my personality though so I am a bit dissapointed. I do like seeing the bears though. I get the same excited, blessed, lucky, on top of the world feeling as when I catch a trout.

Back to food I really do like honey buns and candy bars. Love eating a sandwhich by the stream too. I am doing low carb now and that would be hard to pull off in the backcountry...

I like to take a zip lock bag with mixed nuts, some water and maybe a couple granola bars if I'm going to be out a full day. If I plan to be out pretty far from the car (more than a mile or so), I'll take enough mixed snacks (nuts and bars) to last me a couple days and some extra water just in case I get lost or hurt.

Jeff

ps. I do like the honey buns and bologna idea for my fishing partner's back pack. It's like that old joke. I don't have to out run that tiger, all I have to do is out run you :-)

Default Hey Crockett

I know this is not a food forum but since he is doing the low carb diet

Low carb item: take a microwave small plate or saucer spray with pam or other non stick spray. Put shredded cheddar on plate (small glob-depends on plate size). Nuke in microwave for 45-90 seconds. Let cool remove from plate and you have a cheese crisp. Yes the crumble in the zip lock bags but not much worse than saltines and they are low carb.

I take PB&J and granola bars.

Altho fishing on the Nantahala gave me a chance to stop for lunch and have a really good portabella mushroom sandwich at NOC...
