What is your favorite snack to pack along on a trout walk? Of course it might depend on the walk, a shorter one maybe not much but an all day hike is obviously a lot different. I honestly don't often bring anything. On a long walk I'll pack a salami sandwich. Or if it's going to be a lot of spot hoping, then I just pack a cooler and eat back at the truck between stretches.

If you're really talking about a snack to put in your pocket or pack, I will often take a Snickers bar; If I am thinking ahead, I'll track down some dried dates or figs. For me a sandwich says "lunch." A salami sandwich sounds really tasty, with some sharp cheese. I used to stop a little place in a small town on the Oregon coast on the way to my favorite coastal streams, a deli, that had a comprehensive supply of German sausages of all kinds. They would make sandwiches, too. They'd take the iceberg lettuce whole and slice it on a meat slicer, super thin, so each bite would have a nice juicy crunch. Some cheese and German mustard, and wow, I was set. Long time ago.

I pack a Tupperware of a quinoa salad with kale, walnuts, feta, and craisens. Super nutritious, and the vegetables and grains don't weigh me down.

Lots of choices...
I like Gatorade and water, maybe a couple beers on a really hot day. Cliff bars are nice and filling, and I’ll normally get a bite from McDonalds or Kwik Trip between spots.

I only did it once, but I once cooked a Brookie streamside on the N Shore and it was absolutely fantastic. One of the more fulfilling experiences of my life.

Every once in a while, I remember to put a granola bar in my pocket.

Otherwise, I don't eat or drink while fishing.

Sometimes, I'll grab some fast food on the way home around 4:00, but most days people are waiting for me to come home and cook for them, so I refrain.

Funny thing is that while at work I graze all day and feel famished if I go more than an hour or two.

Ain't got no time to eat when I'm fishing!

When fishing I have to remind myself to eat and drink. There have been times when I stopped myself realizing I haven't drank anything in a few hours. I usually carry water or body armor, and for food a protein bar and granola bars.
