From Yeti Cycles' filmmakers Joey Schusler and Craig Grant, High Altitude Lines bring us along on a fly-fishing and mountain biking adventure through the San Juan high country. The idea was to fish and ride through this rugged terrain, but what the crew ended up finding was nearly unrideable terrain and very stubborn fish. Though their spirits were dampened, the whiskey and four-inch trophy fish were certainly a remedy, and the experience of bikepacking along the Colorado Trail was unparalleled.
