    Keep practicing Mumbles, you'll get there :thumb: and if the MM isn't doin' it for ya, Knob Creek and Woodford Reserve are both bourbons worth a go.

    A favorite of my ski buddies is Metaxa, a greek(?) brandy, that would be a nice fishing pal too.

    Thanks for the supportive words and recommendations Matt R. If I don't like it I'm sure someone will.

    Yeah for high school chicks!!!!

    Flasks are generally too small for my taste. I like to bring along the plastic bottle of Blackberry Brandy.

    I'm sure Buccola's gonna have fun with what LBC wrote. I'm more of a OE, Steel, or malt 40oz du.

    I don't drink much liquor, but keep a bottle of single malt around. The current one is McCallam.

    Blackberry Brandy? Are you from Wisconsin? That stuff is a mandatory part of the survival kits of snowmobilers all around the state. It's been a while since I've had that stuff, but I do remember it warming me up quite nicely.

    wow, what an assortment!
    of course, cautionary tales abound about drunken wading, driving loaded from the river, etc.
    this is what's great about fishing buddies and small flasks- if you share, you'll never get DWI or WWI (wading while intoxicated, often culminates in a nice bracing swim in the river)
    I'm probably going to christen my flask with a wee dram of Irish (Jameson's) and Speyburn single malt after that, but there's some great ideas to try out in this string!

    I wish I had a flask...I am tired of carrying 40's of OE and 211 while fishing...edward 40 hands and spey casting don't mix.

    I don't drink and fish. I'm dangerous enough driving a 5500# truck and swinging a 2H rod. I keep a flask of my favorite digestif in the truck for medical purposes only. I would suggest you add to your list a good grappa like Nonino Optima.
