    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 . . . .

    First choice is a glass of Christian Bros. VS on 2 ice cubes and second would be Crown Royal on 2 ice cubes
