Re: How important is looking the part?
One of the funniest things I ever saw.. was 3 guys driving up to a nice creek, very well known for challenging/technical fishing, in brand new everything,, top to bottom, then flail at the water. I doubt they'd ever cast before, but I assume they saw an add somewhere in a fly fishing magazine
Like dean_mt.. I too have a newer vest.. maybe 2 seasons now.. still looks too darn new.. probably the only change I'd have, need full sleeves always.. need to watch the amount of sun exposure - I should wear sun gloves, they just feel so dorky
