"Two Trains Runnin'" by The Lamont Cranston Band, because of this lyric:

"I wish I was a catfish,
Swimmin' in the deep blue sea,
And all you good lookin' women
would be fishin' after me!"

Listen to this song at ear-bleeding levels first thing in the morning on your trip over to the Basin Lakes or to Lenore, and there is no reason to stop at Starbucks to pick up an caffeinated coffee . . . . :thumb:

Speaking of ear-bleeding levels.........

When the still sea conspires an armor
And her sullen and aborted
Currents breed tiny monsters
True sailing is dead
Awkward instant
And the first animal is jettisoned
Legs furiously pumping
Their stiff green gallop
And heads bob up
Poise
Delicate
Pause
Consent
In mute nostril agony
Carefully refined
And sealed over

Jim Morrsion, "Horse Latitudes"


The Doors can only be played at redline, and speakers can be replaced. The miles go by quickly and I agree, Richard, you don't need the caffeine!

I'm glad to see that someone posted Taj Mahal's "Fishin' Blues". It's great. I got to see him perform that one live in November--he's as great as ever! I know there are more Taj songs that would work, but can't think of them off the top of my head. He's got "Divin' Duck Blues" for you hunters: "If the river was whiskey and I was a divin' duck, I'd swim to the bottom baby and never come up".

Taj is actually into fishing. Someone else mentioned Les Claypool--anybody know of other musicians who dig fishing? Derek Trucks is one, and the lesser known Jimmy Herring is, too.

There's a great new song about water (but not fishing) on the new Joan Osborne CD (entitled "Pretty Little Stranger"--truth in advertising). It's a countryesque/Emmylou Harris kind of album with the song "Holy Waters". It sounds great, and that particular song is a bit ethereal and would make for nice fishing music.

Jimmy Buffett is a fly fisherman. I once heard him on an interview say something to the effect that he couldn't play the guitar like Eric Clapton but he had a better double haul:)

These songs aren't about fishing, because singing about fishing isn't usually something I do. Though I do sometimes change song lyrics to apply to fishing. This is a list of songs I like to listen to on 92.5 on my way to and from fishing:
1. Beyoncé - "Baby Boy"
2. Barry White - "Never, Never Gonna Give You Up"
3. Snow - "Informer"
4. Britney Spears - "Toxic"
5. Janet Jackson - "What Have You Done For Me Lately"
6. Beyoncé featuring Slim Thug - "Check On It"
7. Rockwell - "Somebody's Watching Me"
8. Mary J. Blige - "Family Affair"
9. R. Kelly - "Ignition"
10. Missy Elliot- "Get Ur Freak On"

Jimmy Buffett- Fins

"Fins to the left, fins to the right, and you're the only bait in town."

Brad Paisley- Aint Nothin Like

Songs that don't directly mention fishing, but seem to catch the essence of winter steelheading:

U2- Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For

Jimmy Buffett- Fruitcakes

Primus, dude! Les Claypool is a flyfisherman and writes some awesome fishing songs:

Ol' Diamondback Sturgeon (Fisherman's Chronicles part 3)
Fish On (Fisherman's Chronicles part 2)
The Family and the Fishing Net
John The Fisherman
Wynonna's Big Brown Beaver should be included for other reasons.......:rofl:

I'm also partial to Spinal Tap's "Break Like The Wind", an ode to my buddy Tim's fishing trip habit................:rofl:
I have to second the Primus nomination. And from the OP's list, anyone who hasn't heard Tom Waits "Better Off Without a Wife" is missing out. (Just don't let your wife hear it!)

Bobby MCfaren:Don't worry, be happy, and if you don't think that is a fishing song, I think my BIG MOUTH BILLY BASS, would beg to differ:p as he sings to me every morning :thumb: :thumb: :thumb: :thumb:

I have one of those little MP3 players, the ZEN and right now I have Bony James (light Jazz) Les Paul and a bunch of big names playing tribute (otta hear ZZ Tops version of Bad Case or Loving You) followed by Blue deVille (whoever they are :) ) then Van Halen with both Hagar and Roth, finishing off with Aerosmiths greatest hits. Love it!
