Default Re: Appalachian Trail and trout fishing

While normally hiking and fishing go together like coffee and doughnuts, long distance hiking is a bit different.
AT hiking is more about distance and making good time while carrying the minimal amount of weight. Fishing and fishing gear can only get in the way.

If you want to hike in somewhere and fish, that's a great idea. Hiking the AT and expecting to spend time fishing, probably not.
