    My thoughts exactly!

    Does the hat in my avatar qualify as a flat brimmed hat? Do my layers under my rain jacket make it look puffy? Can you clearly see how my tube has a busted zipper for the top of the back pouch?

    Or do you see me holding a nice rainbow during early morning on Pass Lake?

    I'd wear a puffy jacket like the other kids, but they only come in "little people" sizes. Just to clarify, if you're under 6'2" and 250#, you are indeed a "little people." :p

    I do own a nice down jacket, but it's ass in the rain. So, alas, I am puffless.

    Same for the hat, blessed with a 7-7/8 hat size, I find I cannot wear hats made for most mere mortals.

    At least they make shoes I can wear.

    (Less facetious now...)

    I could not care less what you wear on the river. Frankly I wear as little gear as I can get away with. I'm quite frightening when it's over 100 out...can you say Daisy Dukes? I jest. Or do I?

    If I ever meet any of you on the river, I've got leader, flies and strong back if you need it. Fishing is too much fun to be spoiled by needless Caste-ing.

    Get it? Caste? Oh never mind.

    It takes a lot of work to be a complete asshole. I have to work hard at it as it is. I have to work very hard to keep this image up.

    Don't know if I agree with the definition of "little people", I'm a shade above 6'2" and a shade below 170. I like to think I'm bigger than most people, it helps my ego ;)

    Better watch that wind, if you are ever in Montana. You may find yourself in North Dakota before you stop rolling...

    Not only that Richard Olmstead made a body mass index joke, at the expense of someone else, that was pretty damn funny. That's unheard of...

    OK, you're a classic "Tall" and not "little people. No need to carelessly wound your pride :D

    Thanks, and after all those mean things people said about me! :oops:

    When will the silliness end? I hope never.

    I was tying flies with Richard just last night. Behind a few shots of George Dickel, he was making a lot of jokes, and all were pretty damned funny!
