Back by popular request - make that demand -- this 16-track CD of happy-making music is the perfect accompaniment to the drive to your favorite stream. Or your drive home from that stream. Or a drive to the store. Wherever. We've sold out several times but now it's back! 'A spirited mix of songs and tunes inspired by fish, fishing, and rivers, performed by some of the country's finest acoustic musicians...' (says the CD jacket). It's kind of blue-grassy, swing, acoustic, folk, traditional, (says The Painted Trout) Kinda cool.
Fishing Music and Fishing Music II are collections of songs and tunes inspired by fish, fishing, and rivers, performed by some of the new acoustic scene's top artists including Tim O'Brien, Mollie O'Brien, Mike Dowling, David Grier, Matt Flinner, Billy Novick, Rob Ickes, Ben Winship, and many more.
Co-produced by musicians and avid fly fishermen Ben Winship and David Thompson, Fishing Music was hailed by the Boston Globe as 'a deliciously languid, breezy homage to the joys of the angler…' and former NBC news anchor Tom Brokaw said, 'You don't have to be a fisherman to enjoy this fabulous CD.'
You can never have enough occasions for a good mood. Catching fish would be one, of course, and just plain fishing is another -- but then there's MUSIC about this stuff! The music alone will bring your happy-meter way into the red zone. 16 tracks. It's kind of blue-grassy, swing, acoustic, folk, traditional.
Ann Miller, a renowned entomologyst, and expert aquatic biologist, has created the most useful book on flies, hatches, lifecycle stages, and the tied flies to match them all. This is THE ultimate reference book if you fish in the northern part of the US and southern Canada. In our shop, The Painted Trout, in Dexter, Michigan, this book is our best seller. Get one yourself and find out why. (P.S. Ann is our very own local Michigan Flygirl.)
