Anyone else here unsociable enough to still smoke,, I smoke a nice briar when I am out fishing
hard to think of anything more relaxing than to light up a pipe and sit and watch the river . So much more of a ceremony than just lighting a ciggie.. packing the pipe then the first light the deep draws to ignite the baccy getting the first tastes of the pleasure to come, Then the ritual repacking when the first light fluffs up the tobacco, Then the second light a nice even slow burn.
For lighting its an old petrol lighter for me. A Nimrod commander a lighter I found in my grandfathers tool chest , strange in itself as he never smoked a pipe and its a specialist pipe lighter. But every time I light up I remember him so worth using it just for that. At the moment I am smoking a nice american virginia number one, a nice easy smoke ready rubbed and slow burning so much more relaxing than some of those baccies that make there pleasure so much harder work to obtain. Anyway thats my ramble over with.
