Ep 22: Pack Goats in Backcountry Fly Fishing, with Mike Raether

Mike Raether is a backpacker, fly fisher, hunter, and camper. He is the author of over 50 articles in national and regional magazines such as Bugle, Northwest Fly Fishing, and Montana Outdoors. Last spring, he published a fishing guide titled Flyfisher’s Guide to Northwest Montana’s Mountain Lakes. In this episode, we discuss the use of pack goats as a backcountry fly fishing aid. Mike covers how he uses his goat, the care required, and considerations for bringing a goat deep in the backcountry. I didn’t even know I was interested in using pack goats until I talked to Mike, and now I want to get one of my own. This is a must-listen if you like fishing the backcountry.
