Do You Fish with an iPod?

I'm all about the sounds of nature ... the birds chirping, the rush of the breeze through tree branches, and the soothing refrain from the currents pouring over rocks. But I must say, I broke the mold today and plugged in with earphones as I stole a couple hours on the water.

Is that an angling sin?

I mean, we ski/board with the tunes, run with them, and so forth. I must admit, it was a different, somewhat refreshing experience. And some of you won't want to hear this, but it wasn't acoustic bluegrass, or country, or alt. rock, that got it done. It was straight-up vintage metal. Motorhead. Priest. Iron Maiden. Sabbath ...

Spandex. Gore-tex. Same difference. But now I feel dirty.
