I was just wondering what everyone's dream fishing trip is?

So the question is if you hit the lottery and had enough money to take your dream fishing trip, where would it be? what type of fish would you be catching? where would you be catching these fish?

For me i would always love to go up to Maine and fish for the various types of fish up there from smallmouth bass, to landlock salmon, stripers, and some beautiful and big brook trout.

Every since i was about 5 my family and i have been going up to Maine for 2 weeks every summer and its just beautiful land.

Lotto huh....I would buy an RV and every place I hear or heard of in Canada and the US becomes a stopping point. Of course it would have to be a huge RV to accommodate all the necessary rods reels and fly tying equipment.
I'll fish for anything I tell ya!!!

I just bought a powerball ticket half an hour ago. After I win it Saturday, I will keep y'all posted on the dream trips.

Depending on how big my winnings were... I would buy/build a cabin in both Patagonia and Kamchatka and fly back and forth on my personal jet between the two.

I've already had one dream trip to Ascension Bay in Mexico about ten years ago. I would love to go to either Iceland or Patagonia, maybe after I retire...

"Peace is that brief glorious moment in history when everybody stands around reloading".--Thomas Jefferson

 

There is no such thing as a blank day for a fisherman. It will be saved for him by the white-throated weasel, who watches his fishing from a hole in the wall under which is lying a fish that refused all flies; or by the excitment of identifying insects; or by the apple-bloosom in a nearby orchard; and no one would call that day a blank on which he has seen a king-fisher." -- Arthur Ransome Rod and Line, 1929

It would be anywhere I could fish for steelhead. That is my dream fish and on my bucket list to go somewhere out with the bears and catch and release a slab of a fish!
