Out in the man cave or room ... stereo set on NPR (National Public Radio) set for your local station of NPR and have JAZZ on .... add an adult drink of Scotch or Bourbon ( preferably JAMESON) on the rocks ... and thoughts of Fly Fishing dancing in your head ?
I went for an evening bike ride, and I am unwinding now. My Saturday night ritual is planning out my Sunday fishing trip. It's date day for me and my girlfriend. She fishes, too. We are going to our favorite wild trout river, the Lower Yuba. There's a chance of hooking up some fall steelhead. So I'm organizing my gear.
As for background noise, I have Windows Media Player playing songs randomly. Not too long ago, it went from Stevie Ray Vaughan to Sir Mix-a-Lot to Neil Diamond.
No... No... Save me.. Turn the dial up 1/2 turn and get the classic rock station with a little CCR, Who and Jimmy... At least turn it 1/2 turn down and get some old Blues....
Where are the Republicans out there? Any Libertarians?
Makers Mark over ice tall glass and a couple of hours to sip it. In the fall heated Ouzo or Samboca. Or some spanish brandi..
PS.. It is morning and I am loaded up. Waiting on my wife to finish getting ready.. Headed to our parks to try some Czech nymphing in a 10' run. And to try my new pair of Maui Jim's HT518's. (I also haven't had received the bill yet either)
Excerpt from a blog post I found this morning that sorta ties in to this thread and offers (for me, at least) an unexpected parallel regarding fly vs. bait fishing: Why jazz is more interesting than bowling
Bowling is all about one number: the final score. And great bowlers come whisker-close to hitting the perfect score regularly. Not enough dimensions for me to be fascinated by, and few people pay money to attend bowling matches.
Jazz is practiced over a thousand or perhaps a million dimensions. It's non-linear and non-predictable, and most of all, it's never perfect.
