    LOL, true. But no use suggesting something he can't even try now.

    Just because someone else does? If someone else jumps off a bridge...

    Well put! I prefer Ezra Brooks over all those except the Dickel. I can tell you that the ezra tasted just fine today.

    Bingo! When I fish, I fish... no time for spendy cigar smoking. I just stick with small cigarillos such as Al Capones, Backwoods or flavored Swisher Sweets. I generally enjoy a drink at home after the trip.

    A dry martini; in a deep champagne goblet.
    Three measures of Gordon's, one of vodka, half a measure of Kina Lillet.
    Shake it very well until it's ice-cold, then add a large thin slice of lemon peel.

    These 2 items are totally functional, that is why we carry them. Cigars keep skeeters away and the whiskey is for medicinal purposes. Cures the aches and pains after a long day of fishing.

    Agree, I'm a fan of cheap browns. The bottom shelf has some good deals on decent whiskey.

    I don't do the cigar and hip flask thing while fishing, since neither help with catching and oral cancer would suck. After a good day of fishing I'll relax with a cocktail though. Most cigar smokers on the beach come from Orvis and cast poppers I've noticed, must be a cult.

    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.

    He is a great companion on or off the trout waters.
