Dude, Check This Out: Fishing Music

When you can't fish, listen to music about fishing. Or when you can fish, play this on the way.

This collection, produced by Ben Winship and David Thompson, and released in 2003 by Snake River Records in Victor, Idaho, is "a spirited mix of songs and tunes inspired by fish, fishing, and rivers, performed by some of the country's finest acoustic musicians." There's something here for everyone, and when it's good, it's very, very good.
