With a lit­tle bit of sun­shine show­ing through a fair­ly rainy week, I decid­ed to load up my bike for some fish­ing at the lake. I’ve tak­en my trail­er before, but want­ed to try it with what­ev­er I could fit on just the bike itself, so I opt­ed for the fly rod, being more com­pact. The rod, net and gear all fit in my Topeak MTX pan­nier bag nicely.

I did­n’t catch any­thing today, but it was great to get out and get some fresh air mid-COVID-19 lockdown.

UPDATE (27 August): I took the bike out for yet anoth­er fish­ing ses­sion, this time with my spin­ning rod along­side the fly. Still no fish, but again thor­ough­ly enjoyed the ride.

Still work­ing out the details of car­ry­ing my gear, and hop­ing to maybe put togeth­er a more com­pre­hen­sive bike fish­ing post in the com­ing few weeks.
