I’m not huge into ultralight anything. My current backpacking stove, the MSR Whisperlite International, is a beast, but it gets the job done. As I’m thinking about taking day long and multi-day long fly fishing trips, weight starts to become an issue. When the main point of my trip is to simply hike a trail, I’m not so concerned about the weight of my stove as I would be in other situations. But certain situations call for lighter gear. During my reads this morning, I found this guy, a fly fisherman in the Midwest U.S. who came up with a pretty cool idea for an easy, cheap, lightweight kitchen that he uses when fly fishing. For around $12, he’s got a sweet setup. Check it out.
