    Jack and coke of course. Easy on the coke. Tie fast or drink slow it's your choice!

    Just a Coke. I tried the 12 pack of miller lite, but all my flies started to look like something a cat would spit up. :eek:

    A good micro IPA or a glass of red wine does the trick for me!

    If you like Crown, buy Potter's Crown and you'll never send that much money again!

    A shot or two of tequila seems to do the trick. A nice fuzzy head makes for nice fuzzy flies. :)

    But those are the ones that catch fish! You should carry atleast two boxes with you at all times. The one box that catches fish and the other one to catch the fisherman.

    Grandma Sweeney's Country Quencher, in the green bottle. If I am out of that, I'll hit the Thunderbird or Mad Dog 20/20.

    I have to be really focused or I'm buying flies. A good micro brew, but rarely two or more otherwise I'm wasting time, materials and again...buying flies.

    I usually have a St Pauli Girl, Becks or one of the many fine beers from New Belgium brewery in Colorado... or two... or three. It tends to go from what I need towards what would be fun to experiment with about 1/2 way into #3. :beer1:
