The Perfect Compliment

Warm apple cider, spiced rum, and winter fly-tying go hand-in-hand. If you’ve never tried it, I highly recommend it.

When I’m fishing for bass, I like Bud Light. Bottles, not cans.

When I’m fishing for carp, pass me a PBR.

If it’s fall steelhead, pack along a smoky scotch. Spring steelhead, just give me cheap whiskey—it’s been a long winter.

Early season trout, I can probably polish off whatever is left in the bottle(s) from the spring
steelhead runs, but once summer hits, ice-cold tequila suits me just fine. Just give me a
shot from the bottle and a snort of lime juice. I’ll mix it in my mouth.

Bonefish or Tarpon and I need gin & tonic. Just make sure it’s loaded with ice and limes.

It doesn’t happen often, but when northern pike are in the cards, vodka is the choice.
Don’t ask me why, because I don’t know.
