Well, this is what our forum has devolved to? I have read several threads in the past few days, all with the same rant. So what is with the "puffy jacket" and "flat brimmed hat"? It all feels like thinly veiled attacks at young "hip" fishermen. I really don't care what people wear on the river. I remember someone giving me crap several years ago for wearing a backpack instead of a vest. Who cares. I'm not from Montana, I'm from Yelm, and I wear a puffy jacket from time to time. I don't wear a flat brimmed hat but don't give a shit if you do. The only thing I ask is that whatever you are wearing, do not step in below me. If I'm standing on the side of the river changing out flies, ask if you can fish the run. And if you are rowing down the river don't float right over the run if you can avoid it. You do those things and you can wear a thong with a pink unicorn glued to your beard.
