Granted these are mostly iPod generation tunes and many of us wouldn’t have them plugged in during a mayfly hatch — or if we did Aaron Copeland’s “Fanfare For the Common Man” might be our choice — but it is worth noting the descriminating tastes. (Perhaps manufacturers could take something from this and produce more eclectic rod actions, for example (just kidding).)
