The next poll brings up a topic that my uncle and I had the other day. We were discussing the joys of backcountry fishing and wondering why more people don't do it. While we tossed around several thoughts, one topic came up that piqued my interest: Are some people hesitant to fish in the backcountry due to lack of backcountry knowledge, skills, etc.?
I know that the walk and effort put into fishing some of the more remote areas is a big reason for some, but we seem to think that some fisherman don't partake because backcountry fishing involves a lot of work and a little uncertainty. I don't know if this encompasses any people reading this as I would label most die hard fisherman, but I think this thought has some weight when talking about the more recreational fisherman or the angler visiting from out of town for the first time.
Drop a vote and take time to leave a comment and let me know if you think this argument is plausible or not.
