Fly Fishing's Most Beloved Blogger Reveals... Portable Beer.

Posted by Tom Chandler 8/24/2012

One of the benefits of life as Fly Fishing's Most Beloved Blogger
are the freebies sent in an attempt to curry favor. For example, I drive a free $190,000 Bentley Continental on fishing trips because Bentley is praying I'll mention it on the Underground.

Last week I flew on Snoop Dogg's private jet doing Jello shots off a supermodel's stomach -- all because Snoop hoped the Underground could help with his rebranding problem.

So it should come as no surprise that after I mentioned the tasty new powdered peanut butter food-like product called PB2, the manufacturer -- sensing a golden opportunity -- immediately shipped the following:

PB2 You heard me. Free PB2. Living large... 

A whole jar of each.

I can almost feel the Undergrounder's envy bleeding through the monitor.

Free PB2.

But because I'm a benevolent King of All Fly Fishing Media, I'm going to give you a gift.

But first, let's set the scene.

You endure that hot, wearing hike to a remote alpine Brookie lake. Once there, you pull out a package of rich, tasty PB2 powder, which you mix with clean, pure alpine lake water.

Your fishing buddy -- gnawing on dried wheatgrass jerky -- looks stunned and envious. (To relax him, you might want to show him your cell phone photos of naked supermodels.)

But it gets better.

You realize a beer would taste awfully good with that PB2.

Which is when you reach in and pull out the Condensed Beer Concentrate.

Condensed Beer You heard me -- beer concentrate 

I'll say that again: Condensed Beer Concentrate.

Is this a great country, or what?

Where else could a poor-but-honest blogger -- working from his basement -- drive a Bentley, pour powdered peanut butter on supermodels while they pleasure him, and also pass along news of mankind's greatest achievement ever (so far this week)?

Nowhere else, that's where.

See you in my Bentley, Tom Chandler.

Powdered beer really!?! Oh, the humanity. And, I thought powdered milk and eggs were sacrilege. Dave www.woodsedgestudios60.etsy.com for unique fly patterns.

I immediately order some (it should be waiting for me when I get home tomorrow) and they send you some for FREE? And I thought it was just Mom that liked you best

Gerry C: If L&T>TC and m1>WWD and m2>0 then I leave it to the reader to prove that L&T +m1+m2>>TC+WWD Sorry Tom, your only hope is to house train that bear. I just want to point out that both you and Jamie just failed the Pocket Protector Geek Test. I mean, you're right and all, but next thing you know you're both going to start posting comments in Klingon or something. ... more And no, WWD has been (ahem) fixed, so the equation simply can't balance.

Tom, It would appear that the addition of m-2 has created an hormonal equation of L&T+m1+m-2 > TC+WWD (assuming he still has some?) ...small streams giving way to supermodel shots? Brother, come over to East Shasta County for some small lake trout or bass plunking; we have portable beer (in bottles) here too! As those icons of our early lives extolled "it's only just begun..."

Damn! You talked about powdered peanut butter -- what could be the greatest backpacking food ever made -- and I immediately order some (it should be waiting for me when I get home tomorrow) and they send you some for FREE? And I thought it was just Mom that liked you best.

Tom Why not make caches in the river like the pioneers and me. Just plop them in the river , throw some rocks around them and continue to the next stop. When you are ready to fish, go up or down the steam to the next cache. Simple, cold beer and hopefully a decent brew. You can also bury bottles of peanuts or other nuts, they stay fresh forever. Works for me.

David: Powdered beer for backpacking? Best…..day……ever!!! This is life-changing stuff, Tom. No longer will I have to carry the extra weight of a PBR 40 ouncer. What will they think of next? Not powdered, just concentrated. And if you want fizz, you need to hike near a soda spring (or carry some kind of CO2 device). Still a huge advance over carrying PBR, but then, tuberculosis would be a huge advance ... more over carrying PBR.
