Re: You Might be a Fly Fishing Bum if…
We were visiting Yellowstone a few years back, waiting for Old Faithful to impress us.
We had already been to the park office & learned to stay away from bears & buffalo (bison). There was a small herd of bison near the benches around Old Faithful, grazing & generally ignoring the tourists.
My youngest son, about 9 years old at the time, disappeared from view.
His mother, (being xenophopic, buffalophobic, bearphobic, and a lot of other phobics), insisted on looking for him, instead of waiting for him to show up on his own.
We found him.
He had been stalking the buffalo/bison & waiting for them to leave the area.
He wanted some buffalo hair for dubbing, badly enough to scare his mother (and me) to get it.
I found out later, it was illegal to possess, but I think we still have some.
A picture is worth somewhere around fifty bucks, after taxes.
