An angler’s favorite playlist is a tool that can sometimes be considered just as important as their rod and flies. Whether you’re a surly guide who depends on some rock and roll to roll out of bed for that 7 AM float trip, or the Van Gogh behind the vice whose art is inspired by the soothing toons of the grateful dead; your music powers your engine.


With this in mind, we sat down with our friends at Turtlebox Audio to put together 4 custom Spotify playlists inspired by the anglers and genres that have inspired us. Now, we’re proud to present these Angler Albums for the listening pleasure of everyone. Whether you’re getting pumped on the drive to the river, or need some accompaniment to the sound of a hissing reel with a billfish on the other end – kick back, crack a cold one, and enjoy.
