Colt takes us to the Valles Caldera, a magical place outside of Los Alamos, NM for some bike fishing and camping vibes. Give Colt a follow on Instagram, he does some great work!
It’s no secret that the bicycle can be a vessel for linking together with other interests and hobbies. Be it pack rafting or in this case, fishing. The bicycle can get you deep into the backcountry in a relatively short amount of time, compared to hiking, and access areas autos or motos can’t go. With this mobility comes a few problems that require solving first, however. Mainly, how do you carry a fishing pole with you on a bike? Much less a fly rod? Sure, there are a lot of fly rods that pack down to a manageable size, but none are as compact as the mini, yet mighty Tenkara rods.
Anglers will go to great lengths for the right fishing spot, luckily for the Provo brothers, Northern Idaho, specifically in the Bitterroot Mountains, is home to exceptional singletrack and a healthy population of Bull Trout. Check out this fun video they made last year….
Blackburn created the Water Cycle project in conjunction with Brian Ohlen, one of 2016’s Rangers. Enjoy!
