  1. You can catch pike easily on a fly rod, just need a steel leader.  That's why I prefer trout, no scales.

  2. PS Carrying a couple of thin strips of metal or a steel mesh to span the top of the fire hole would avoid the pot falling in. Great series, thanks. YT is better than most TV!!

  3. Hi David, I just watched your video about the 'fire hole'. I was frustrated that the comments bit was disabled, I assume because of trolling. I guess you know that the fire hole works on the same principal as the rocket stove. I won't go into it but it's worth a dig on YT. I have one made from old gas cylinders that I heat my workshop with. It burns very little, gives off zero smoke and will easily climb to 450 degrees at the top of the stove. It's the way to go!

  4. Loving this series. Can't wait to visit this area!

  5. You left me hanging, I wanted to see how the fish you were cooking did. A great hike and a beautiful place.
