Ride your gravel bike to catch remote trout on a fly

Getting a little bored of the same old awesome gravel rides? Try stringing together multiple adventures – gravel riding, flyfishing and possibly some hiking if you do it right.

Living close to the goods I can jump on my bike and find a fishing hole pretty easily, Whether it’s a fork of the Snoqualmie or a high mountain lake, I can carry everything needed including a packraft. I got the Kokopelli Rogue lite on Kickstarter a few years ago and it’s perfect.
