If you enjoy backcountry fly fishing—or if you have interest in doing some—you’ll get a kick out of this video from Damon Bungard, product manager at Jackson Kayak and brand manager for Orion Coolers. The video documents a solo journey into Great Smoky Mountains National Park, as Damon hikes into the Upper Ravens Fork watershed for some camping and fly-fishing for brook trout.

Other than the size of the fish, this type of trip is hard to beat. There are countless mountain streams in VA and NC with wild brook trout and many of them are almost never fished.
Could you give a little more info on the hike? Parking at trailhead? Campsite number?
