    I once made a day of it with a decanted half-bottle of Lagavullen. Walked up half the stream - about three miles - right up to source, picking off trout as I went. All was good until I climbed a steep embankment to exit. I slipped, missed the stout sapling I'd been aiming at to pull up, and spilled backwards twenty feet to hit the shallow, rocky river bed at gravity's intended pace. Not recommended.

    Last time I thought it was a good idea, in mid-Summer a few years back, I'd had a couple at the local and thought it a good idea to sample the evening rise. Gearing up at about 9pm I rested the spool on the handrail of a footbridge, put the rod up, and leaned down to my bag for the fly box, simultaneously glancing the spool with the rod. It plopped into the river never to be seen again. It was a Galvan, and it was a gift from a very good friend.

    Fishing half-cut is bad for the soul and occasionally life-threatening, but there's nothing worse than fishing with a hangover when all you want to do is go to sleep.

    dont drink and fish at the same time its bloody well too dangerous
    play this and you can go back to sleep


    that said, the best hangover" cure" is" fishing" out in the great out doors,anyhow.
    turn off the music and read on

    lots of fresh air, you get to walk it off, (no driving) getting up early making your favourite brew (helping to dillute it),
    and after you arrive at the bank and look out into the distance with great expectations and anticipation of the day ,your dopamine levels begin to rise.

    So much it starts to drown out the banging /numbing sensations of the over indulgence of the night before.

    and after seducing your first fish to a fly on the day as you raise your rod to the heavens above thats when the ANDRENELiN takes ov
    BANG
    " fish on" you say admirly and smugly to your self whilst STRICKING then locking your index finger all the time pulling in slack line as it snowball,s ,
    getting FASTER and FASTER to connect with the fish on the other end of the line,


    the andrenelin PUMPS a little more, your hearts racing hands shaking as you begin to retrieve your line with your free hand,,
    slowly you begin to settle and play the fish,gradually and steadilly towards you,all the time keeping your rod in the air.
    after tireing him out you then land and release it unharmed,
    "JOB DONE "you say and recast for the next one ,hoping it wont be to long a wait for the next tug on your line



    HANGOVER what HANGOVER? its gone
