    Default Music to describe your fly fishing life

    Hi folks,
    I was listening to music as I fished yesterday and thought I wonder what 3 songs other people would use to describe their Fly Fishing life.

    Mine are:
    1) Tragically Hip - Yer Not the Ocean (I've learned I am a small part of the equation in both fishing and life)

    2)Queens of the stone age - Go with the flow (usually the best policy with fishing)

    3)Scotland the brave (As I plan to go someday to fish)
    John L.

    "The finest gift you can give to any fisherman is to put a good fish back, and who knows if the fish that you caught isn't someone else's gift to you?" Lee Wulff

    “Be patient and calm – for no one can catch fish in anger.” – Herbert Hoover

    I love music, always have. But...I don't fish to music. For me, it would be out of place. I like the natural sounds that come with the territory.
    It's great that there are so many portable devices available to us. I have my share, but they stay home when I fish.
    The playlist so far looks good, and if that's your thing, enjoy the tunes in the water. But for me, nah.
    Music to describe my fishing life ? All natural.

    I don't listen to music when I fish, but the song that would best describe my fishing life would doubtlessly be the Rolling Stones' "You Can't Always Get What You Want."

    I don't listen to music when I have the fly rod, flying hooks seem to catch more of me than fish, so.... when I'm in the boat and not fly fishing, I listen to country, sometimes the ipod and sometimes just the radio.

    I haven't ever met anyone that also listens to Blitzen. I walked down the aisle to Furr. Black River Killer is another one of my favorites.

    I usually listen to some random bluegrass when heading to the river.

    What music best describes my fly fishing??? That's easy "Flight of the Bumble Bee", there is so little time to fish that when I do get out, it's go as fast as I can...lol

    I was going fly fishing until my wife suggested it, now I can't tell who is outsmarting who!

    Being "one with nature" requires a knowledge of what animals are living nearby and a weapon of sufficient magnitude to give you at minimum an equal chance of survival. No one has an invisible aura that animals can detect and sense your good intentions.
