What do you pack for overnight backcountry trip?
The Scott Radian and Lamson, spare rod, the essential tackle etc, a spare set of dry clothes, raincoat, down jacket, sleeping bag, tent (if not staying in a hut), torch, first aid kit, good food, coffee, gas stove and gas, my billy, 3L of water, whiskey, tobacco, toothbrush and toothpaste and earplugs for my mates...because I snore!!!
What do you call backcountry?
In essence I think it's a place you have to hike in to...however thereare a lot of places serviced by rough roads in stunning locations that I'dalso class as backcountry. What makes or breaks it for me is the solitude...if anglers gave each other a wide birth we'd all be better for it.
