When you sit down for a tying session what is your preferred beverage to have right there next to you? I stay away from coffee & will usually have a sipping glass of Glenlivit nearby.......It helps steady my hands. I will say that after a few hours of tying & sipping I come up with some interesting new patterns.-

Oh that's an easy one, an number of excellent micro-brew IPA, or DIPA's! If I had to choose just one it would be UnEarthly by Southern tier brewing Co

Although I love me some bourbon too!

Most any brew will do, except for Coors Light (like making love in a canoe - f'n near water), but if I was forced to pick, it would be UPU, from the Lake Placid (NY)Brew Pub!!!

I generally don't drink while tying flies although if I do have a beer I drink Mirror pond IPA or Inversion made by the Deschutes Brewery. I only ever make 1 or 2 flies at a time because I have a bunch already. The exceptions are when I tie for a charity auction or a swap. I need to make a few AK. Assassins and Skykomish soon and I'll be sure to drink a Mirror Pond while I make them

Nice!

I wish that I could say that I poured myself a Laphroaig ever time that I tied a fly but I could simply not afford it! I enjoy most Islay whiskeys- guess it's the heavy peaty taste that just lingers longer!

But practically it all depends on why I am tying and what time of the day it is.

If I am just churning out flies at the last minute then its usually coffee and nothing spectacular. A normal evening's tying session would be accompanied by one of our local (and cheaper) whiskeys, more than likely Bells which is a scottish blend.

JW Scotch, Green Label. The flies tend get more disproportionate as the night goes on.

I've enjoyed that a few times in the past. A business associate of my Dads used to send him the Bell shape holiday bottle every year, Probably due to our last name being Bell!!

Normally I just wear a hydration pack so I never have to stop tying.

But lately much of tying has been in the mornings before work, so it's a 24-oz cup "cup of Joe" sitting on my desk.

Green Label? The JW Black is my staple, and love the JW Blue (but its a bit pricey for everyday). How does the Green compare?
