    I've always thought a flat brimed cowboy hat was rather stylish. I myself prefer the Tom Mix style of cowboy hat . But then againI'm also prone to wear a waxed filson coat in wet weather as well so what do I know..

    This must be some sort of newfangled code: I understood only about half of what Darthmonkey wrote!

    What? You've never woken up to a hotbox of sharticles you've been marinating in? You must be new around here.


    The brim on my Stormy Kromer is pretty flat. Am I gonna be okay out there or will it be bothering people to the point where they can no longer enjoy their time on the same water? I'm just not sure what to do.

    Please help

    Alex, you and me both... must be that generation thing again.

    Well... during the brief time I wore baseball caps, I wore them to play baseball. In those days the hot deal was to bend them as Jim does his. I do have baseball caps in my collection of hats and the brims are all "shaped".

    I guess one advantage of the flat brims is it gives you a place to hold your hotdog... or in the case of flyfishing... hold a spare spool. :)

    So I guess wearing baseball caps backwards is now out and the pancake grill brim is in?

    (The hat shown is not up to date... it doesn't have the new and improved angry beaver logo... the one that looks like an angry walnut)

    You should be okay, as long as you don't wear it backwards & also make sure if you have those newfangled zippered waders that the zipper is in the front & not behind you in the back!!!!

    Ripping ass = Breaking wind, passing gas, farting
    Hotbox = the effect of cutting off all ventilation inside a car to maximize the effect of introduced odors.
    Sharticles = Shart particles (Shart = $hit/fart in one disagreeable event. Normally occurs after greasy meals to those with irritable bowels)
    Dead-leg = The effect of instantaneously putting someone's leg asleep by punching his/her thigh in the correct place to temporarily collapse the femoral artery causing a chain reaction of events to put the victim's leg to sleep. Also quite painful at the application site.

    Hope this helps.

    Ah, shitting one's pants. That I understand. But only worry about that the next day in elk camp after having Uchytil's goulash the night before. Jan should market it to the people who make colonoscopy laxatives, it would taste a damn sight better, and get the same results.

    We almost need a thread devoted to "hunting camp faux pas". Nothing worse than a greasy food fart with a "surprise" in it.

    I understood this entirely and I'm 56 yrs old. Does that mean I'm hip, smart or immature?

    The coats I could not care less about but the ball caps, man you gotta bend the brim.

    Wearing your waders with the zipper in the back is a fashion trend that started in america's prison system. True story!

    Coal indeed.

    Now I just gotta get me a puffy. Those patagucci jackets look nice, but I can't justify spending that kind of money on something that isn't waterproof and might get ripped apart by a cast if it was gusty out.
