Just as long as they aren't wearing their little sisters, errrr, skinny jeans....
But your pants won't bulk up when you're putting your waders on... Does anyone know if Carhartt makes skinny jeans?
It wasn't until I got to the bottom of page two that I happened to look down over my laptop at the coffee table....
I'm still not quite sure about the stereotype being discussed here.
Will someone please post pictures of the fluffy and flat things? I don't live in a hip Seattle neighborhood so I need some help here.
Whatever happened to the good old "us vs. them" mentality, meaning flyfisherpeople vs. non-flyfishers? Now I hear there is even division amongst those who don't flick feathers. Apparently gearchuckers look down their noses at "bobber-floppers". Disclaimer: this post is slathered in sarcasm. I honestly don't give two shits about what you wear or how you fish.......
It's still there, it just shifts about quite a bit. You can always depend on beads, nymphing, spey rods, and apparently flat-bills to piss off some poor sod. Humanity is predictable in its penchant for hate. I for one, look forward to the flat-bill fluffy jacket vs. tweed wars of 2013.
Ha Ha, and I thought I had this figured out. I got that funky coat right, but those hipster hat's I had all wrong. You young whipper snapper's are just trippy. What's with the turd tree, ha ha.
I will were a puffy jacket sometimes and a flat bill hat. And if that makes people not wont to vist while fishing than fine I didn't wont to talk to you anyway's. In fact im going to go fishing in an hour and im going to wear both. So stay away im a punk GANGSTA!!!!!!!
Those flat billed baseball hats make you look like a dork. And people wearing them hats backwards must suck dicks.
If people didn't have ears I believe that the ones that wear hats to big would have them covering their faces.
The only good baseball cap is the ones with curved bill......................Like mine.
This is one of the most ridiculous post I’ve read in a long time. Old man, next time you think of something to write, just stop. Ridiculously vulgar and uncalled for.
I really don't care one way or the other but those coats do make me think of a
mini "Michelin Man" especially when worn by some of the huskier.
hahaha, that's fantastic.
I love this post. I wear all of the above, but not typically together. You can bet your sweet ass I will be now.
And get this, one of the most well respected fly fisherman I know happens to rock a flat brim idylwilde on the river.........and lets just say he's not a spring chicken. I dare someone to tell him to take it off...I'm sure you'd get a blank stare followed up with a "....the f***s your problem?"
I have a hard time wearing baseball caps when fishing, my sunglasses always end up fogging. I do have an old wool Kangol hat that is nice to wear when it's chilly out, it's way more comfy than a baseball hat. Plus, when I'm not catching any fish I'll sometimes turn it around backwards and scream "Enough is enough! I've HAD it with these muthaf*ckin trout in this muthaf*ckin river!"
You can wear all the flat brimmed hats you want....Not for me.
John's original post was to point out how silly it is to judge other fishermen based on what they're wearing.
Yep, and Old Balls jumped on the homophobic hate wagon REAL quick.
What a joke. If you care what I am wearing, either on the water, off the water, or other wise, you are a sad sack. I am going to start wearing tweed on the water, and I am sure it wont be long until someone has something to say about that (although it will probably be my hoodied, puffy jacketed, flat-brimmed, brethren that give me crap). It's alway something. By the way, I teach your kids in skinny jeans and I have gauged ears.....they all want to be just like Mr. S.
