Another good term/word I like is "Tramping",from friends in New Zealand which they call Hiking & Walking.
Also have heard it called & used "Footing it" & "Foot Slogging" which I learnt from the WWII Aussie Army Guys I worked with who fought In New Guineau.
Scrub Fishing > Fishing in Bushland.
Mr Speckles > Rainbows Or Browns.
Most of The other common ones have been mentioned,also there are many,many well known ones we all know & sometimes use which cannot be mentioned.
