That should be pasted above every bar.

Dornblaser Reverse half 'n half - I was recently up on my regular river and the water was stained and a little higher and faster than it has been. I started out mending to a swing and then dead drifted. I was typically letting my wife fish the pool and I would fish the tail out. It worked on the first cast. Truth be told, I had not thought out how to best work the water before I cast as I was watching my wife's casting.

When it starts to ice I up I will dead drift with a sink tip.

Single malts and a cigar for if I am not driving. One Bass or micro-brew if I am the driver.

Whiskey/Whisky

Don't get down on the Jack D, you never know when you might be five months and 26 miles from Dillingham Alaska drinking "Northern Lights" Canadian Whisky from a plastic bottle mixed with diet generic cola. Aaahh that takes me back.

I don't consider Whisky and Scotch the same...2 beem and cokes then three fingers of Glen. Now that's a nice vise session

As long as you're drunk

Who cares!!! my best fly patterns were just sitting on the vise in the morning after nights like those. I think little elves made them

In seperate glasses, in case you mis understood, the idea is that you don't get full before you get drunk and drunk before you get full.

How about

After a day of steelheading in January I'd rather have a pint of whisky and a small beer

I would think

i WOULD THINK ANY BUGGER/SUCKER/LEECH PATTERN WOULD BE EFFECTIVE FOR THAT, ALSO A LARGE RUBBER-LEGGED STONEFLY MIGHT PROVIDE GOOD MOVEMENT. I REMEMBER MATT SUPINSKI'S BOOK AND PASSAGES ABOUT USING FLIES WITH "MOTION WITHOUT MOVEMENT. SOME SORT OF FLESH FLY AS WELL WOULD WORK IE WHITE AND ORANGE MARABOU SPEY TYPE FLY
