We ventured to Kananaskis Country last week for a family outing. This was one of our first hiking/fishing trips with the kids ages 8 and 5. They’re both keen fishers and have floated the Bow numerous times but had never had to carry rods through the bush.
One tip we shared with the oldest – from a lesson we learned the hard way years ago – always keep your rod strung up when walking through the bush. That way the leader will keep your tip section with you if your rod sections happen to separate.
