    I will second the stanley...although after several years of nothing but good, I got a brand new thermos from them which didn't hold heat for sh!t. I contacted them many times and never heard back. I figure they are a company with a great product should you get a decent item...but if you get a lemon, you are hosed on customer service.
    Anywhos, the linked flask came on woot and I nabbed it for around $6. It is larger than the common flask (9 vs 6oz) which can come in handy depending on how the fishing is. It does have a separate rubber grommet for seal which can fall out but the cap is bigger so finding a replacement is easy.

    Try dreamdriftflies.com. They have a selection of 8 oz. flasks @ $27.99 that feature fish patterns and river camo as well as numerous other fly fishing accessories.

    A good friend of mine (Oldgoat) has a flask that is similar to those for the gas additive stabil (HDPE Dispensing Bottles). He got it at a health food store. You give it a squeeze and it fills a once or two oz. in a upper resivoir and take the pull from there. If you fumble the flask you only loose a ounce or two, handy later in the day. It really is the nats ass for passing the peace:)

    One thing I learned, don't fill it all the way up. I can direct you to a very fine, engraved stainless flask on the botton of Blue Lake near Oroville. Two thirds full it would have floated.

    My favorite flask is one that starts full and ends the day empty :)

    In all seriousness I am not that picky and have not had leakage problems with my cheap stainless, no name flask.

    My flasks are in my pocket upright most of the time. When not upright the damn thing is leaking its tasty contents right into my gullet.

    +1. I hope you've found a good flask. I've thought about getting one but I allocate the money I have to spend on liquor to a middle shelf Speyside single malt and it wouldn't be as good from a flask.

    I have a couple good flasks. I like the Simms flask I received as gift. It has a Derek deyoung brown trout print on it. I rarely carry them though, since an asshole cop gave me an open container ticket for a flask someone else left in my passenger door. If you pack a flask make sure it's in the truck bed or trunk.

    Trip, I'd like to hear the rest of that story. Not doubting the assessment (see what I did there?), but this screams of steamy intrigue!
