    Well, I was able to pass along some great information...and at the same time, convince myself that I need another setup! hahaha

    There are belly boats that you can inflate w/o pump, lightweight flippers is all you need for those walk in spots

    Short chunky head (OPST, Rio, Airflo, SA) with a short piece of tip to match (T8 or T7 Flo).
    I use the Perry Poke to cast the line out on my SH rod - the line never reaches my side or behind.

    Yeah...had them. Too much crap to haul around for incidental fly fishing on a backpacking trip. A fly rod, properly rigged, is a preferred option for small mountain lakes with zero backcast situations.

    For more accessible lakes I much prefer my fishing kayaks for all-weather comfort.

    A DT line for roll casting with a SH rod!
