That sounds absolutely incredible. To fish on a backpacking trip, to me, sounds like heaven. I assume you could easily drop some weight with your bag, tent, or sleeping set up, and def with leaving the chair at home, but you are going to sacrifice comfort. Do you do any shorter trips in the meantime? If you go a little more bare bones, I'd at least try the new set up on a shorter trip. No use ruining a perfectly good longer trip just to save some ounces.
