In England I discovered the property owner, in a King like manner. considered the stream passing through his patch,
meant the fish in the stream were his, the property to defend too. (Not even pole less camping)

& in the US you need a species specific licence, cross state lines & you need another one..

Since the thread has come around again, I'll share my suburban fishing rig:

brought my rod on my c&o trip recently. as stated above by others fishing and riding did not mesh well on this trip. the need to hit the trail early to avoid the heat and stop early enough to make camp wash clothes etc made a conflict that i resolved in detriment to fishing....which i love.

on the other hand yesterday on a local ride i fished and caught 1 small mouth bass and 3 bluegills. all a bit less then record threatening but a good time was had by all, well at least by me

chris in miami, i like your rig

No fish? Iím sitting at a little pond in Sacramento, that was recently stocked. 🤪😁😉 I saw 3 different people catch multiple fish, in about an hour or two. Most folks went home now, but those fish are still jumping. 😎

If you want any specifics just let me know.. I love fishing and biking and combining the two.
I looked at telescopic rods but due to all the ferrules that have to be in those to get them to extend to whatever length, doesn't that cut the sensitivity of the rod by a lot?

Also how reliable are the telescopic sections? I'm always worried about them coming apart like the old radio antennas use to do.

I tried that doing that and I broke the rod when the rod hit a tree limb I was riding under, thought I had the clearance, nope.

I have a very old telescopic fishing rod that's still going strong. In my opinion the convenience and ease of carrying it far outweighs the loss of a bit of sensitivity. I've never used it for fly-fishing though.
