Flyfishing travel music

Okay folks.....when you're on your way to a flyfishing location, what music to you listen to during your drive? Is it classic rock that revs you up for the impending fishing time, or the lulls and crescendos of classical that help to pass the time getting there? Or something else?

To me, the travel to the location is part of the entire experience. I'm usually travelling with a companion, so conversation takes the place of music. But when I'm alone I'll listen to anything from techno to funk to retro. I guess it depends on my mood.

How about you?

Yes, U2 is nearly always what I'm listening to, but the song varies depending upon my mood.

Dejavu all over again... Allman Brothers or 80's heavey metal bagpipe bands (keeps you wide eyed and bushy tailed), copious amounts of coffee and chain smoke ciggs. Arrive at the beach wired, hands a trembling, knees a knockin and lookin for a bush to stand behind.

My tape player sounds like crap so I generally rely on the radio, which means that I have to take whatever I can get. Usually its WAAF when I head east and WCCC when I head south. They usually stay with me until I get close to the Cape or RI, and then I have to scan for some decent tunes. I'll take anything in the classic rock or hard rock category.

BTW, if I'm still listening to the radio when I see the sun rise I kick myself in the a-- for not getting up early enough!

It is a pretty good bet that I will have a little Dave Mathews going.

I guess I'm a real oddball it normally ends up being the BBC news or Leftys casting tape. Boy does my wife hate that tape. :hehe:

Good question.

I second Dave Matthews. But, when headed to the coast I will only listen to the Live at Luther College CD.

I will never forget listening to that CD a few years ago as I drove home from Singing Beach on a warm night in early October. Jeff B and I had spent the night fishing at Singing Beach and catching tons and tons of schoolies. There was a good group of SWFF folks on the beach that night and some even whipped up a good bonfire at around 11 PM. We fished until at least 2 AM and then when Jeff left I wound up cranking that CD and driving around to the other area beaches in search of bigger fish.

I drove home around 3 AM, stereo blaring, windows open all the way and me with a feeling of true content. All of this despite a mad case of striper thumb and some wet long undies from a rogue wave that breached my waders as I was lipping a schoolie.

So, that CD has some good striper mojo for me.

Other than that CD I am partial to Ben Harper's Live from Mars and if my Dad is with me then we listen to some Bob Marley from time to time.

Well I'm with John on the BBC news if the radio's on.

If it's a tape (no CD changer in the car), it will be Sarah Brightman, Andrea Bocelli (their duet of "Time to say goodby" makes the hair stand up on my arms) or Annie Lennox.

For a total change of pace it would be Moody Blues, Chris Isaak or Enya.

Ay Caramba, we have some varied tastes on this forum! I must admit that yesterday on the way to the river I was listening to Weird Al Yankovic... what can I say? :hehe:
... and this is from someone that listens to classical and jazz while tying.

Early Rolling Stones. If it had to be just one of their albums, as opposed to an anthology, it would be "Let It Bleed". I also like Bob Seeger's "Night Moves"; Beethoven's Ninth Symphony; Orff's "Carmina Burana"; Bonnie Raitt's "Nick of Time"; and Paul Simon's "Graceland". "Graceland is great driving music.

Cool topic.

My tastes in music vary widely. It could be Vivaldi's 4 seasons (Spring of course). It may very well be a little Zep, VH or Dead. Like Q, I sometimes rely on the radio in which case 104.7 usually does the trick on the ride to Chatham, on the way back whatever will keep me awake.
