Haven't noticed what songs are lucky or not but sometimes I end up with Chris Knight or Ryan Bingham stuck in my head while fishing. Both great "real" country artists if you are unfamiliar with them. Most times my mind is on other things though.

Also agree that listening to an iPod or other music player kind of misses the point of getting out. Though I like the idea of listening to baseball.


I thought I was the only one who listened to/heard of them! Great artists, Bingham is working on a new album I believe.

Add Lucero, Randy Rodgers, The Gourds, and Robert Earl Keen to the mix.

--------

I don't listen to music when I am fishing, and I am really against it for reasons others have mentioned.

But, songs that do remind me of the stream:

Pickn' on Coldplay: Old school Freight Train (I believe the group that covered it) - Yellow
Orba Square - The Trouble With Flying
A Perfect Circle - When the Levee Breaks (Led Zep cover)
Four Seasons - Vavaldi
Ryan Bingham - Bread and Water
Nick Drake - Pink Moon
Bela Fleck - Big Country
BTBAM (Progressive Metal, if you like it) - Parralax II (the whole album is basically on piece)
Lucero - All the Same to Me
The Gourds - El Paso, Burn the Honeysuckle
Moby - Sunspot
Pearl Jam - Insignificance (well, any PJ for that matter)
Tool - Wings for Marie Pt. I and II

A lot of these songs remind me of when I am flying as well.

Sarce, I'm a fan of Chris Knight. "It Ain't Easy Being Me" might as well be my theme song. I like "Becky's Bible" too.

I also listen to the Casey Donahew Band, Roger Allan Wade, Kyle Park, Cody Johnson, Hayes Carll, Hellbound Glory, CCR (Cross Canadian Ragweed), James McMurtry, Jason Boland, Dale Watson, Tony Stampley and others. Of course Hank Jr, Hank III, Waylon, Shooter, George Jones, Johnny Cash, Willie, and Tompall Glaser.

Lately I've been listening to the new Eric Church album "The Outsiders". I like "Dark Side", "A Man Who Was Going to Die Young", "Talladega" and "Roller Coaster Ride" off that album.

Outside of "country" music. I listen to:

Dropkick Murphys, Kid Rock, Uncle Kracker, Jay Z, Eminem, Bruce Springsteen's "Born in the USA" album, Skynyrd, Nirvana, and various '90's rock.

So, long list short, who knows what song is stuck in my head while I'm fishing.

The music for me are the sounds around me, the wind blowing through the Hemlocks, a Wood Thrush Veery singing in the deep woods, or the rush of the water at my feet. But I sometimes have an ear worm going through my head, but they are always random and not always related to something I've heard recently.

Well said!


I think Beethoven would agree. I'm only interested in the sounds of the stream.


Or he might not agree, as he was deaf when he wrote Symphony Number 9. Imagine that.

But he had the ear worm for the music and he could still write it down.

On the way I listen to God - on the way back I curse him.



Just joking of course.

i don't listen to music outdoors either, but i find fly fishing videos that have bluegrass as the soundtrack most appropriate - maybe cos its quirky and old time, played with wooden instruments etc.

I hate to watch great fishing videos that have crap metal soundtracks - now i love me some Metallica, SOD, Tool, etc etc but not for a fly fishing vid...

I think any music in a fly fishing video ruins it, but that's just my opinion.

When I'm fishing I like fishing related sounds. Like the flow of the stream, birds chirping, ect. Music is the last thing on my mind as I'm working the trout stream. But, I do love listening to music on the usually long ride to my fishing destinations.

Agreed: music can add, considerably, to my drive to and from my trip...but I'd prefer to be "silent" when fishing.

Country for me. I especially like the brand of country that celebrates rural life, small town living, nostalgia of youth, blue collar ethics...I don't really get to live that life, so I live it through the music.
