    Keystone light? When I was a young lad I used to go with canned chili, canned stew, pop tarts, Buckhorn beer, etc. No more! Good wine, good beer (see Bridgeport IPA, Full Sail IPA) , good food (i.e. fajitas, pasta, enchiladas, steak, etc.). I have so few opportunities to do over nighters that I want to go first class. Don't want to finish a day of fishing and go back to crappy vittles. Splurge baby! It makes the memories that much sweeter :thumb:

    First off for a three day trip I would pack my pole case full of nips of scotch from the liqueur store (you can carry your pole). My vest would be full of beer nuts, jerky, and porn (you only need one fly the one on your pole right?) Boots? Waders? too much weight forgo those for a cooler of black bute porter.

    Pepsi
    Garlic Hot Dogs
    Several bags of homemade beef jerky
    Chili
    I usually plan better but this seems to be all I end up with.

    If you want it simple, I suggest pre-chopping, pre-cooking, pre-freezing anything you can. It's really easy if you bring a bar-be-cue & grill steaks, hamburgers, chicken, etc. We always bring corn on the cob, which we shuck first, wrap in tin foil and cook on the bbq. Just heat up some beans or chili & you're set. My husband likes bacon & eggs for breakfast, but it's easier to bring yogurt, bagels, etc. Your awesome choice of beer actually takes up a bit of room & is heavy...and you have to pack out all that garbage/recycling. For lighter weight, take some whiskey & you can smash empty cans of beer (but canned beer is never as good). Of course we go through a case per day, so what do we know? We have a vacuum packer & it's awesome because you can seal your food & don't have to worry about it getting waterlogged in cooler water. We float so often on multi-day trips, I have become an expert at the food situation. Email us back if you want some more ideas...burritos, spaghetti, taco salad, etc. My husband actually asked me to email you because as we all know...I'm really the one in charge :)
    Good Luck

    For breakfast pre-made burritos with eggs, potatoes, bacon, cheese & preferably green or red chili but hot sauce will work. Followed up with a redbull will put you where you need to be and put you on the water that much faster :thumb:

    Well, this is just me but I'm not really a hot dog on a stick kind of guy. I like to use tin foil to cook things like Salmon or Italian Sausage on the fire. Red Potatoes are a must. Use a cast iron skillet to saute them with onions, bell peppers and garlic. A good New York steak with melted blue cheese on top is always good. Then to top it all off, a good IPA and a can of Cope is all you need. :beer2:

    3 jars of green olives ( pimento and jalapeno)
    1/2 gallon gin
    Hostess donettes ( both kinds)
    Stanley thermos to fill werever
    lots of cocktail ice to keep the gin cold ( I did mention gin didn't I)

    seems like that would do

    Oh, I am! your correct :p , but the topic was food and I love the olives and the gin goes better with olives, ,, now the rum, well its better with the donettes and coffee in the AM- especially the powdered sugar ones. Probably 100 wrappers laying around my Jeep from morning breakfasts.
