Backpacking rod n reel?

Recommended Posts

Well, I'm into backpacking.  This fall we're doing another segment of the Appallachian Trail.  Anyways, we'll be going along some streams / rivers and I'd really like to take a small fishing rod and do some fishing.  It would be awesome to have a fresh fish out on the trail.

The main thing is that it needs to be light - weight and be able to fit into a backpack.  Are there any rods out there that break down into small segments that can be bound together?  Anybody tried this before?  I thought I could get a small rod, a small reel, and some lures and be set for some fun.

Thoughts?  What would you take?

There are very few good quality multipiece rods that come into my mind, Browning manufactures some ( BPS ), however if I wouldn 't consider purchasing one of those, if I were into it like you I would certainly look for a rod with more substance.

Major Craft 's Sa-Ku-Ra

You can order it from Plat

Excellent service ! I recommend it very very highly to you.

take a look at st croix's travel spinning rods

they're 4 piece rods ranging from 5'6 to 6'6 in length and are fairly cheap

cheers

I finally made a decision.  Thanks, guys for your advice.  I think they were a little more than I wanted to spend initially.

I found this:

The beauty of it is that it is a breakdown fly and spinner!  Reviews looked decent and it was a good price.  Now, I can do either in the future!  They also had one that was a caster too, but I doubt I'll be doing any of that while backpacking or hiking.
