Fly Fishing Beer Steins

By March 3, 2012

Follow me on:

Fly fishing beer steinVisiting a pair of local antique shops recently, I stumbled across matching fly fishing beer steins and couldn't pass up buying them both.

Because really, what's better than beer AND fly fishing?

The steins are handcrafted from Brazil exclusively for Avon. The larger stein is from 1978, and has cap for your toasts. The smaller one, which is more a beer sampler, is from 1983.

Both depict a scene of a fly angler setting a hook on a trout with the phrase, "The strike ... rainbow trout" on one side.

On the other side, a hunter walks with his best friend and the phrase, "At point ... English Setter."

Anyway, being it's the weekend, and I have some fine Belgian ales chilling in the fridge, I thought it would be a good time to share and see if anyone knew anything more about this particular line of steins.

On a side note, if you're looking for a beer stein, the About store has some solid outdoors steins for sale, including a fly fishing guide stein.

And if you're looking for a beer recommendation, it doesn't get much better for fly fishers than Big Sky Brewing Company's line of craft beers. I'm a big fan of Trout Slayer Ale and Moose Drool Ale myself.

Cheers!

Today, I went to the beach front with my children.
I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and
said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and screamed.

There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off
topic but I had to tell someone!
