    Yes, absolutely. A single malt is best drunk with a splash of water. brings out the flavour.! But, in answer to the question, as with everything, moderation is the key. i love a dram from my hip flask while out fishing. A glass of wine over lunch on the riverbank is a damn fine thing too. Drinking a skinful and then wading into the Tay might not be the best idea, but a nice chablis on the banks of the test makes the day!

    Heathen....the only thing a single malt should be mixed with is more single malt....lol, I'm not a fan of drinking & fishing, seen a well known guide have a few sociable drinks with his guests then jump into his car & drove 100 miles home!!! My opinion, drink, fishing, driving definitely should not be mixed no matter how large or small the drink is.

    I have never set foot on a golf course in my life. In fact, I don't know any golfers.

    Just wondering, if they are prone to bad behaviour and drinking whilst on the course, or do the clubs control this with strict rules.

    Just wondering.

    Of course they do - but they've thought of that, there's a flag on each bit pointing to a hole where you can relieve yourself after a few cans.

    May I offer up an honourable exception. My brother fished the Annan for a few years with a friend and one day they came across three fairly elderly gentlemen fishing and clearly having a "very good time" obviously enjoying each others company and a good malt.

    They all shook hands and one of the men introduced himself "As you can see we are drinkers who fish" amidst laughter from the other two elderly reprobates.

    So was it the cast of "Last of the Summmer Wine ? " well no. They were Bristol Beaufighter crew who had sworn to each other that if they survived the war they would meet up for a weeks fishing every year for the rest of their lives and have a damned good time.

    They will all be long gone now, God bless em.

    I beg to differ. I find a few drops of water bring out the best in a nice malt.

    Re OP, I agree - alcohol and angling are not compatible imho.

    some people just can,t help but consume alcohol there inflicted with this
    ailment and for some its a way of life or tradition,some even have to drink just to socialize
    and others use it as a "crutch"just so they can forget the everyday stresses of life.
    so ill let you with this one to consider your thoughts

    doobrysnatcher, I am sorry for whatever has caused you to view the world like this. All is not as narrowly black and white as you seem to espouse. And to upset the malt drinkers, I like a small ice cube to open it up.

    we are all products of our own enviroment,be it tea alcohol,or even drugs,
    i can relate to this song alot as its almost the equivalent to my area where i grew up,
    but that aside its probably one of the friendliest places in the world.
    this is why i go fishing ,it replaces the black and white perceptions i have ,to a meaning ful colourful paralell world, full of beutiful scenery and teaming with life

    A pint with lunch or a wine or two in not a drinking session , Its the numbnuts with 48 cans and 5 bottles of Buckie that roar all day arguing with their mates about the stupidest things!

    Drives me mad but luckily I have only experienced this a few times.
