    Scotch when on my own. Or when with fishing buddies, whatever they bribe me with to keep tying! It just gets better....

    If I'm tying for myself I like a small toot of Midelton's. If tying for others, PBR suits the mood.

    How in the name of fly tying can you be drinking, tying and pickin' a guitar? Sure you can sing and tie, but I don't think you can play and tie.

    Geetar comes out after I've snapped-off tying thread a sufficient number of times . . . . and I reckon nobody ever agreed that I could sing . . . did tie-up a few marabou/dyed possum-fur damsels of my own design today, however . . . dynamite for picky trout when slick water prevails . . . .

    Ditto on the good highland single malts or Islays.Waters of life ,nectars of my kin! Slow down,connect with their complex earhten qualities spring water,peat ,oak. Their aged perfection distilled in amber/ gold.Reflect on your simple good fortunes in life,like fly fishing.What were we talking about oh yeah tying.
