There's no better music.
I've had music playing in my boat before, but it's pretty rare. I'd much rather listen to the whizz-plop-click of every cast, or the birds on the bank.
Once, during a particularly long winter in a particularly fluorescent office, I had bird song playing in my headphones. It was the only way I could get through the day. Staring out the window at the sunshine wasn't helping me much.
Birdsong can refill your psyche and reconnect you with the natural world.
Why would you want to start the day any other way?
