No music for fishing but I like it back at camp. Here's what I may be thinking about though. Too many musicians recorded this to pick from so here's the original peter green.

I don't listen to music when I fish, but I listen to this to remind me WHY I fish.

Easy call: Roberta Flack = "First time I saw your face."

Edit: Done well, but still Ms. Flack sets the bar:

Just sit back and listen; this sets the bar for a Native Run Steelhead.

I had the privilege to meet and briefly know this artist who's music made a profound impact on my life from 1977 until this day.

I do not listen to music while fishing but the timeless messages that are intrinsic to these three pieces are in my mind always. His words were about nature, beauty, and about us and were an influence on me.


Here's one for the land and the sky;


One for the sea's and the beauty of our oceans.


And one for the heart & mind and the Spirit.

Many, many years back (total accident) got John in my home. Tour Bus did a brain fart and I pulled up. Got a few other guys together and picked the crew up and over to my house for a flake out while the thing got towed/repaired.

Next two days were total Magic. One of the most unassuming guys you'd ever meet. Pancakes-eggs in the morning, BBQ in the evening. John in the 'spare bedroom,' the rest flaked out on the floor or a motel.

First time I'd heard 'Anne's song.' Gut wrenching; we talked for a very long time. A man in deep hurt.

Lots of good music on this thread so far.

I'll add Mississippi John Hurt's "Let The Mermaids Flirt With Me". Not about fishing, really, but a fine country blues:

I do not work for pleasure
Earthly peace I'll see no more
The only reason I work at all
Is to drive the wolf from my door
When my blessed trials are over
Cast my body out in the sea
Save on the undertaker bills
And let the mermaids flirt with me.


Scott
