    I found a cigar a little hard to manage (and am a little paranoid that I'll touch my line to the tip and melt it?!?!) while actively fishing, so I enjoy a pipe during my breaks stream/beach-side. Usually keep either Johnny Walker Gold or JD Single Barrel in my flask for a quick nip (or two) during said breaks...

    Not sure if the pipe makes me look like a douche', but frankly I don't care too much…Nothing against cigars, just too much of a time commitment while fishing--I prefer them on the back porch or in the hot tub...

    I don't smoke them while fishing, or drink to boot. It's an "off the water" thing for me. So no worries on burning anything other then my layering clothes. :)

    Bulleit whiskey or Oban single malt are tasty even when you're not on the water. Pair that with a Partagras or Cohiba red dot and you're in it.
    Also, I was given a bottle of Talisker scotch that I have fount pairs REALLY well with a medium bodied cigar. Just sayin.

    I have to put in my two cents here...

    Organic Nation Old Field Rye Whiskey
    Lane Limited Black Cavendish Tobacco in my pipe

    I say celebrate whether you catch a fish or not. It's called fishing for a reason, not catching or landing. When I do it I like to call it casting. I think it better represents most of my days on the river ;)

    I've tried cheap and expensive cigars, they all taste like crap to me.

    Bourbon is a different story...Gentlemen Jack is my beverage of choice.

    As a runner I cannot imagine doing anything to jeopardize my hard earned cardio ability, but I am also very Irish so good whiskey is a must. Glenmorangie Quinta Ruban, Balvenie Caribbean Cask are awesome as are some of the Japanese single malts such as Hibiki and Yamizaki.

    Only difference between us is you smoke em I eat em. I do have to admit I favor Jack but truth be known I'll drink just about any brown juice.

    Long time runner as well. Most cigar smokers don't inhale the smoke into their lungs, so it's not an issue.

    Tomorrow is a little home made Apple Pie made by the wifey!

    Just a little apple cider, apple juice, hint of sugar and cinnamon sticks, boil, strain, cool and add some everclear. Good day on the river! If your on the Sno up David P road and see two guys yelling at each other stop by and try some, just me and my Bro having some family memories! Yes it will be "PG"

    Cigar, well nope sorry about that! My bro may have one though

    Not one mention of any loyalty to local distillery's....whats with that? Next time anyone is in the Anacortes /LaConner area pay a visit to the Golden Distillery out on Samish(sp?) Island.Nice little outfit with a generous sample room.I checked it out last summer and returned last week to stock up with a couple.:D
