High Country Fly Fishing UTV Rig

Or, how fat guys get up the mountain...

Years ago when we made our first of many trips to what's become one of our favorite high mountain fishing destinations, we jammed into my 100,000+ mile Tacoma and beat the living hell out of it getting up the mountain. To this day I remember peering up at the steepest and most boulder-strewn section of the trail thinking there's no way my poor little truck can make it up there. Somehow it did.

But now as the truck has been retired from active fishing duty, we've moved on to more efficient means to get around in the back (ish) country. As we've built out what we think is an ideal rig to fish from these lakes and streams, we've been asked about the setup. So without getting too nerdy about it, here's a short video on what we use to get up and around the mountains where we fish.
