That hotdog idea is a good one. I may use that for salmon river trips this fall.

Yeah, that weiner in a thermos is a good idea. May have to try that one out some day. I use to do the MTO's also, but usually have a PBJ for a snack and chinese later on.

Not important, but the "United States" is more formally known as the "United States of America" and it would be rather cumbersome to say "I'm proud to be an United States of American..." or even "God Bless the United States of America." When people say and hear "American," they understand and mean a citizen of the United States of America, not a citizen of any country that is in either continent of North America or South America. In other words, if you are a citizen of the U. S. of A., then you are properly called an American, and if you are not, but live on one of the two "Americas" then you are perhaps Mexican, Canadian, Panamanian, Venezuelan, Brazilian, etc.

I don't think that when they release those videos of middle eastern warlord condemning "America" they are not targeting Panamanians.
And by middle ease I don't mean Delaware. BTW the president and I believe all presidents actually do say "God Bless the United States of America." at the end of most if not all television addresses. None of this really matters since this is a fly fishing board but I thought I'd chime in too.

Well, what is more "American" than hot dogs and Peanut Butter and Jelly.

Hershey is shutting down the Oakdale plant this year along with several others in Canada and the United States, and plans to move their production to a new facility in Monterrey, Mexico.

Yes, Hershey's. Or should I say "si"?

flybinder - I don't camp myownself, except the several times I take a float down the Deschutes. The party usually consists of 4-8 ffishers, and there is always an extra boat to take the camp down to the next site and set up a sit-down dinner (steak, etc.). And last time I went, they had one of those solar showers, which is a good thang to get the desert dust off after a tough 12 hrs of ffishing.

Dunno why they would do this on the Bitterroot - you're never that far from the road and civilization.

Back to the original question: I like to bring dried apricots or mangoes - tasty and full of calories and not bulky. But remember, 2 dried apricot halves are the same as eating a whole apricots when you add liquid.

Too many dried (or not dried) fruit have a nice purgatory effect. Don't ask me how I know this.

PS - there's a spot on the San Juan that ought have a big tree amidst the scrub, now that it's been well fertilized.

Lestrout, if you still fish the Deshutes, welcome to my state!
And, I agree, I fish the Deshutes many times, each year and how I'd LOVE a hot shower, (or even a cold one, at times), to get rid of that "Oregon Baby Powder"!
However, as you mentioned..........the Bitteroot is not that far from "amenities" and since we also saw these particular rafts, later in the day at a take out point- who needs a shower "mid-day, on a day-only float trip"?
Fishing in Montana as often as I do, I've noticed more and more and MORE "Hollywood" taking over the rivers and streams, not to mention of course, shooting property prices through the roof. Just to "take a break and stretch", Bishop and I this year, called on a few "lots" we saw For Sale signs on, on the Bitteroot, St.Regis and ClarkFork............. 65 X 80 was the cheapest we found, on the St.Regis, set back two lots from the river's edge, for $785,000.00.
When "The Grizzly Hackle", in Missoula, reduced their fly tying materials section, and knocked out a wall to install a "Latt'e and Mocha shop" was about the last straw for us, fishing in Montana, period! I don't plan on "ironing a nice, sharp, crease, in my breathables, just so I fit in, accordingly" to fish over there.
The Lochsa, Kelly Creek, Selway, Clearwater and St.Joe are all closer to me, anyway!

Now, as to the "hot dog in the thermos" and "PB&J", I agree on both posts, that it sounds like a great idea! Except, knowing me, and the way I pack to go out, I'll no doubt, at least ONCE, put my PB&J into the boiling water of my extra thermos.................

flybinder - I was actually born in the City of Roses, but am a Pennsylvania fly guy through'n thru.

Next week I'll be on the Lochsa, Selway and maybe Clearwater, (Flyanglersonline FishIn) but will stay a few more days to hit the Bitterroot, Clark Fork, Rock Creek and maybe Blackfoot. Those Westslope Cutts are a lot easier than the natives here (or the redsides) but they are gorgeous. It's nice to wind up the season with #8 4XL October Caddis and 5wts/6X after a summer on Trikes on 8X and 1-3wt. Then it's back to #22-32 midges and olives thru the winter on spring creeks.

the other foodie MO for me when I spend full days on the water is a BIG breakfast - a rancher's steak'n eggs will keep the energy up. When I'm in the Catskills, a local variation at the Greek's suffices.

Ahhh... another good one...I used to get the best biscuits and gravy on the way out of town at 5am when I lived in Boise. Hard to find cool little diners like that anymore.

I pack the TP in my backpack for just that reason... A good breakfast keeps the energy going, but it can rear its ugly head as the day wears on.

For the pre-fishing meal, I like cheesy ham eggs with hot sauce, personally. That and a strong cup of black coffee. Perhaps that's why I can make it all day on just a sandwich or some sunflower seeds... Big breakfast is key.
