Tunes for those tricked into heading to South Andros Island with a bunch of professionals

Cry a river for the poor chap that must hang around for an entire week with a bunch of professional fly fishing guides and outdoor journalists. Such a person must first have their head examined, and then scoot over to the practice range to ensure they’ll have at least moderate tendinitis in their right elbow by the time the festivities kick off. The ultimate excuse for poor casting performance means being able to lounge around, play dominos with the locals, and subsequently enrich the readership with photos of the underside of the bar after falling off the stool.

The highlighted example of the action-packed drama to come requires music – we’re talking rich-media experience here. And since the RIAA would probably have a hard time with me dubbing THEIR creations over my soon-to-be-released video entitled Don’t Kick the Kalik (Just Drink It), the following playlist for the upcoming Deneki FIBFest is being provided lie royalty free:

My personal theme song on the bonefish flats…

1 ) I Am A Man Of Constant Sorrow – Soggy Bottom Boys

What Colorado trout will be singing while I’m gone…

2 ) Miss You So Badly – Jimmy Buffett

Someone’s going to play it during our all-night poker sessions…

3 ) All Along The Watchtower – Jimi Hendrix

The rest of the crew will be crying this one while watching my casts whiz by…

4 ) Gimme Shelter – The Rolling Stones

Reels will sing this to backing all week long…

5 ) Only A Memory – Smithereens

What fish are going to sing to my poorly tied flies upon strike…

6 ) Casual Affair – Tonic

What barracuda sing most all of the time…

7 ) Lonesome, On’ry and Mean – Waylon Jennings

Everyone at Andros South will be singing and dancing to this the moment I arrive depart…

8 ) Conscious Party – Ziggy Marley

What will play in the backs of everyone’s head when that chunky bonefish turns for the mangroves…

9 ) Flirtin’ With Disaster – Molly Hatchet

Because what’s the use of a fly fishing trip to beat all fly fishing trips without at least two Waylon Jennings songs…

10 ) Honky Tonk Heroes – Waylon Jennings

What bonefish sing most all of the time…

11 ) I Can’t Drive 55 – Sammy Hagar

Why I’m (actually) carting a fine bottle of scotch along to FIBfest…

12 ) The Hand That Feeds – Nine Inch Nails

What fly fishing bloggers sing most all of the time…

13 ) Info Freako – Jesus Jones

After a barrage of hero shots, fish will rue the day this song was ever written…

14 ) Celebrity Skin – Hole

And last but certainly not least, a request from host Andrew Bennett himself…

15 ) Funky Town – Lipps, Inc.

…remixed as Congo Town, because we wouldn’t have it any other way.

MG signing off (hoping to finish a report and bill the client so I don’t have to borrow my antes)

Wish I was able to join you guys. I look forward to hearing/seeing the reports that flow like Caribbean Rum from Andros next week.

A suggestion for the list: Fishin Blues, by Taj Mahal

@bjornorama – A toast to you will happen shortly. Hope the move goes smoothly. And get the little one an 8-weight – a two-er won’t cut it for her long with dad around.

@Pisces – “A here’s a little tip that I would like to relate…many fish bites if you got good bait”
