Music to Fish By

By Tim Romano & Kirk Deeter

PLEASE HIT PLAY BEFORE READING

Nothing like that feeling of jumping in the truck in the morning with a mug of coffee and a donut, and heading off for the water to fish. But what makes that moment really work is picking the right song to blare through the stereo as you roll. Can't be just one song ... the music has to match the mood, and more importantly, the type of fishing you're setting off to do. My picks:

Bass ... "Five Pound Bass" by Robert Earl Keen. (What else?)
Trout in the back country ... "Splendid Isolation" by Warren Zevon.
Tarpon ... "It's a Long Way to the Top (If You Wanna Rock 'n Roll) by AC/DC (Just try it.)
Mako Sharks ... "The End" by the Doors.
Stripers ... "Fairytale of New York" by the Pogues.
Carp ... "Chocktaw Bingo" by James McMurtry.
Redfish ... "Essence" by Lucinda Williams.
Steelhead ... "In Bloom" by Nirvana.

And when you know you're in for that epic, blanket hatch on the trout river ...
Anything by Barry White, because that's all about love, baby.

Jeff HI'll tell you folks, it's harder than it looks ... a little bagpipes mixed with some Angus on a Gibson SG with a Marshall stack ... mmmmmm. Makes me feel like pulling on some silver kings. You get it.

And if We're Talking Ray Wylie Hubbard ...Let's just say that "Up Against the Wall Redneck Mother" pretty much covers any brand of fishing in any two-stoplight town, anywhere west of the Mississippi River. Those of you who have been in said places understand exactly what I'm talking about ...

I totally feel you on the AC/DC for Tarpon, or a jet boat ride up some western river early in the morning "...that's how it goes playin' in a band..."Man I have goose bumps!

Fuzzy memories of our discussion earlier this year.I always like to pull to a stop for any kind of fish species with King Parrot Head Jimmy Buffett's "No Particular Harbor".That just sets the mood for the day and puts you in the right frame of mind. If that does not work - turn around.The music blaring down the road with a full cup of coffee has to be eclectic to each individual.Some of my favorites:The Who - Magic Bus - My truck pulling out of the driveway and rolling around the mountainsides of Colorado.Grateful Dead - The Music Never Stopped - Lyrics of "There's mosquitoes on the river, fish are rising up like birds" allows you to visualize the Colorado BWO and PMD hatches.Robert Earl Keen - The Road Goes On Forever. Enough said.Led Zeppelin - Immigrant Song - which is about vikings rowing west in search of new land. My search for new water.Iron Butterfly - Inagadavida - For the fight of a brownie.Beattles - Lucy In The Sky With Diamonds - One lyrical phrase of "Picture yourself a boat on a river" captures the moment to drop the hammer even more.Pat Green - Carry On - "Everybody just has to get away sometime." Good to play for your wife as you walk out the door for a day on the river.U2 - Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking ForTodd Rundgren - Bang The Drum All DayFinally start the trip home with...Willie Nelson - The Party's OverDoors - Alabama Song (Whiskey Bar) - "You must have whiskey on your mind".Reel Big Fish - Beer - "I think I'll have myself a beer."And whatever else you may need to drive to the bar and then home.

Go onto Amazon and buy yourself a CD called "All Gone Fishing".Fishing songs by George Jones, Tanya Tucker, Jery Reed, Merle, Mel, Porter,Lorrie, Little Jimmy, and others.Unfortunately doesn't include the best of all, "Fishin' Blues" by Taj Mahal and Vassar Clements, but you can get that on the third "Will the Circle Be unbroken" set.
