    I have been knocking out some flies this afternoon and poured a nice Makers Mark and Coke to keep me company. I had one more and I would swear the quality of my flies is improving. What do you use to improve the quality of your flies? :)

    makers on the rocks or a nice single malt (Glenmorangie port wood finish)...

    but sometimes just a nice cold high life or rainier does the trick too.

    The quality of your flies only improves til you sober up:clown:. Milk's my beverage of choice, but since this is clearly a thread about alcohol, I'm going to have to go with Henry Weinhard's Blue Boar:beer2:.
