September 29, 2011 at 7:25 am #617786 Taylor 791 Posts I was fortunate to spend a month traversing the American arctic by river last summer. We caught and ate a lot of fish. These pics help explain why, for me, fishing, like split-boarding, is as much about spending time in the back country with dear friends as it is about the pursuit of the fish or the epic line or turn. @sun_rocket September 30, 2011 at 5:05 am #617787 nearls 162 Posts Awesome picks Taylor. Are those chum? they sure have cool colors. September 30, 2011 at 6:03 am #617788 Taylor 791 Posts Ha. Yup. Some pinks, mostly chums… I love chums. Chum-eater. Unbelievable beauty in the arctic. @sun_rocket September 30, 2011 at 4:08 pm #617783 Scooby2 611 Posts beautiful shots, beautiful place Taylor!

He seems to have barely passed the initiation rite of passage. 21 posts in 11 days already! Dude catches some nice fishes though. November 10, 2011 at 2:32 am #617791 SPLITRIPPIN 709 Posts Well not being the fellow to really want to give up on anything once it’s season wanes… I convinced a couple bros that cold camping is the shitski… We headed up to my Ely cabin, and set out for some fishing at a kind of a hidden campsite. We had to don orange due to it being deer hunting season. And it turns out Surly brewing just released “The Darkness” An Imperial Russian Stout. Nothing says “fokk yeah.. let’s do this like a 9 am brewski” group photos on a sweet overlook Brookie after taking a grouse that fell into a deep crevasse after I shot it Hunter/Gatherer Surf and Turf Another fine Rainbow on a somewhat hidden lake.. They were loving the worm harness spinners And this may very well be the last fishin for the year…. Well until the ice comes in, and we do it all over again. Bring on the split!! :thatrocks: November 11, 2011 at 7:55 am #617792 wasatch surf 979 Posts [vimeo:3kp16fda]http://www.vimeo.com/31945723[/vimeo:3kp16fda] March 6, 2012 at 6:21 am #617793 dln 146 Posts My old man sent me this photo. 58F in Ruby Valley Montana today.

This year I didn’t splitboard on my b-day, weird. March 12, 2012 at 1:56 am #617796 Huck Pitueee 145 Posts Hey if you have to go to Oahu Hawaii definitely bring a rod. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HJNhmsidd00 Nearvous waters fly shop will get you going. And Louie is a great guide. If you never hooked a bone fish it’ll fry your brain! You gotta have at least 150 yards of backing.

We took the long way up to my cabin in Ely, MN to do some fishing. Pretty sweet way to see some remote parts of MN. KLR packed up and rollin’ Danny Boy’s murdered out KTM We stopped at a watering hole/hotel, and proceeded to drink alot, and BS with the locals…some whom really thought smokin’ weed was baaaaaad(sounds like somebody has too many stems and beans in their mix, eh).. Danny sporting that all knowing shit eating grin of his after many libations…My bike is sporting a PBR..I’m just straight sporting “wasted!!” We hiked out to a cool camp spot that is for the most part not used much…Nice and quiet, and a good fishing spot. Hennesy comfort land 1st fish is always dinner, 2nd is just fun enjoying the view, and watching mr. brookie get cooked on the spit Early AM on the hike out..that’s actually on top of a 100ft cliff…super sweet vista back on the road and stopping for some tasty smoked fish Danny boy in front of his Lake Superior surfing spot They get big enough breaks to snap boards from what I’ve seen in photos. Then 10 mins from home after completing about a 600 mile trip. A lady decides to try to make a turn in front of me at a light.. panics, and stops. I had 2 choices…either get T-boned, or dump my bike. We know who always loses when dumbasses drive cars around motos. May 15, 2012 at 5:05 pm #617800 Rico in AZ 559 Posts Splitrippin, that is just rad. Always have wanted to do something like that. So. UT and SW CO would be awesome places to fish and explore from my homebase. Sorry to hear you had to tuck and roll. Exactly why I am motorcycle averse. Great pics! Thanks! May 16, 2012 at 4:00 am #617801 chronicracing 162 Posts Right on splitrippin! I love seeing some back home pics. 10+ years ago I lived in Hudson, WI. We used to take the KLR’s up along lake Superior to Thunder bay, Cuban cigar’s and fishing. Now my aging KLR takes me steelheading Oregon’s coastal rivers and trout fishing the Cascade lakes. I’ve been thinking about mounts on the KLR, so I can take the split on some spring corn missions. :guinness: Viewing 20 posts - 81 through 100 (of 126 total) ← 1 … 4 5 6 7 → You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
