More Ultimate Fishing Vehicles

October 26, 2009 By: Marshall Cutchin

French couple Robert and Martine began driving around the world in 2005 in a 15-year-old Mitsubishi Canter and have since “driven through the northernmost reaches of Finland and sand dunes in the Middle East. They’ve spent a year and a half criss-crossing Australia. This latest leg of their journey began in June in Vancouver, British Columbia, and has taken them to Inuvik, far above the Arctic Circle, and now down into Montana.” Of course Robert has taken every chance to fly fish along the way. Could that make the “wrong-sided” steering of the Mitsubishi somehow tolerable? Take a look at the picture, and somehow you begin to think that this vehicle might be the perfect transport for a fly fisher on the endless trip. The best part though? The travelers are spending about as much money traveling around the world as they would be “sitting at home doing nothing, Martine says, but paying for rent, lights, heat and other necessities.” Vince Devlin in Montana’s The Missoulian.
