    This thread just reminded me that my margarita is empty, the blender is empty, and it's to late to make some more. Kids and wife are asleep. Just back to the Red Hook I guess. :beer1::beer1::beer1:

    I usually huff a mixture of paint thinner, gasoline and moth balls. The flies don't get tied, but the next thing I know it is fishing season again!

    I have heard stories about a drink that truely enhances your creative juices called the "Green Fairy"; a Swiss invention I believe... some say Absinthe Supreme from Czechoslovakia drank Bohemian style is the way to go. Monet, Manet, van Gogh and rumor has it that even Picasso and other French artists danced with the green beverage daily. If it worked for 19th century Parisian artists it should work for the 21st century fly tiers from the Pacific Northwest. Anyone tried this yet? Picasso was a 20th century artist, but was rumored to have given this a whirl.

    I like Famous Grouse Scotch-it is my bird hunting and fly fishing beverage. (The picture on the bottle is very cool!) BTW-I'm heading to New Zealand in a week for a 2 week fly fishing trip!:thumb: We will be in Wanaka for a week and Gore for the other week! Rick

    In the interest of this thread never dying, tonight I tied up my first ESL's and some clousers while enjoying a Romeo y Julietta Bully with a glass of Redbreast. Life is good. Knob Creek, Glenlivet 15 French Oak, Pendleton, Black Bush, Dalwhinnie, I never met a whiskey I didn't like...........

    Mike,
    I suggest you make a trip to Bottle Works if you are not familiar.Here you will find 10% and higher.Almost any beer from around the world your heart desires.This beer mecca lies in wallingford about a mile from the UW.

    I just made some new brew. I have a nice crisp summer rye that I really like when it is hot outside. At the insistance of my oldest son, we revamped the hop schedule for the boil and amped up the alcohol content to 7+. We layered Centennial , Cascade, Fuggles, and good old skunky Chinook hops. We backed all of this up by dry hopping with some Cascade hops. Upon first tasting at transfer time it is very, very tasty. Can't wait until we get it in the bottles and it carbonates. RyePA will lead to some very nice new flies.:thumb:
