I'd like some ideas for entertaining myself or a small two to three group activity. Around the campfire and towards the end of the night when we're done hiking/fishing

Only ones I can think of are

>By myself activities
Wood whittling

>With another person(s)
Poker/card games

I'd like some unconventional but still fun things to do that won't get boring after 20 minutes.

Howdy,
I'm just getting into Fly Fishing this year and was wondering what people here recommend in terms of gear. I currently live in Southwest Montana, so I'm looking for a 6 or 5 weight 4 piece 9 foot rod. I'm currently looking at one made by LL Bean on eBay, but there is also a "swap meet" for Fly Fishing gear coming up this Saturday. What brands have a reputation for being higher end, reliable, and durable. Also, does anyone know of a good bag for hiking that a travel tube could attach to?

>>700764

You've chosen a good weight, size, and configuration for all-around general purposes. Beyond that you start splitting hairs and it doesn't really matter for a beginner.

I would suggest though that you don't go cheap on the rod. It is worth investing about 150 for a good rod, not much worse than the higher end rods, yet a huge step up from the $50-60 budget ones. Manufacturing technology is amazing nowadays and it's super expensive to make a fantastic rod. If you have to go cheap do so...

I don't think you have to go too crazy if you're just starting out. I started on a crappy $20shakespeare, then once I moved to where there was no good fly fishing I upgraded for whatever reason.

For around $200 I got a fairly good kit at a sporting goods store, got a #8 for going after bass,pike,muskie, crappie, works well for me.

All my spinners & casters are Fenwick, they work well for me & hold up well. If I had to look for a new fly rod, I would check them out to see what the have.

Greetings, fellow /out/doorsmen.

It's not often that I interrupt your routine and perhaps it's not all that topical, but I have a small request to make - I represent this board in the 4CC, which, for the uninitiated, is a tournament between teams that represent boards run in Pro Evolution Soccer for a bit of fun, and I've run into a small dilemma, reaching out to you for help.

Specifically, I want music from you. Soundtrack needs updating, as it were, so pitch in and show me the songs that you feel encapsulate /out/ as a board. From your submissions,...

Hi guys /fit/ reporting in

My parents say I need to get out more cause all I do is play vidya games and go to the gym 4 days a week so here I am

what would be the optimal way to maintain maximum gains while camping, I take in about 3500 calories a day with a very particular macronutrient ratio so I was wondering how I could do that

I was going to bring a big wheely cooler with me to bring steaks and eggs n shit I could probably hike with that cause im pretty strong

also what are some /out/ approved workout routines I need to maintain my gains while...

Truth be told though of you don't wanna go and enjoy the outdoors you never will embrace it and it'll be a waste of time. Talk to some people at your gym and see if anyone does hikes. How old are you and do you work?

Would it be effective to make a pond in my backyard to fish from?
17 replies and 3 images submitted. Click here to view.

Depends on how big of a pond we're talking about and what species of fish you want to stock it with. It also depends on if you'll be primarily doing catch and release fishing or if you'll be taking fish out of the pond on a regular basis to eat.

>>699246
You will need to buy things.
It will be expensive.
You will also need to dig a big hole.
It will hurt.
Birds and snakes will steal your fish.
It will not be funny.
What do you have to lose?

Tell you what.
Try burying a kiddie pool first, filled with gold fish.
Toss in some floating plants and an aquarium bubbler.
If they do well, proceed.

My 70 year old father put a pond in on our wood lot. I borrowed a d6 cat Dozer and damed off a brook that usualy runs dry in summer. He's a member of a local wildlife club they have built a fish hatchery box. It's currently has about 100000 rainbow trout eggs that will be hatching round April. They stock local lakes for fishing we usualy keep around 300 each year

You are gonna loose some from eagles, Hawks , raccoons n local kids sneaking in to fish. It's nice to be able to walk out back door n go fishing whenever you want.
