I have seen it all when i fish and i dress in whatever i have and sometimes waders sometimes shorts or jeans . i do see the models fishing looking like they stepped off the pages of a magazine and most times they are beginners that don't stick with the sport long..

Sometimes, if I feel too stylish*, I'll pick my nose. If the slobs around me don't pass the pork rinds and chewing tobacco, I'll eat the booger. That gets me into the club quicker than anything imaginable.

*Hasn't really happened yet.

Sheepishly, I admit to investing in Orvis waders/boots a couple of years ago.

My Columbia vest is older than I can remember, though, and I've been sewing it back together for about a decade. Think it's got another 10 years in it. There's currently only 1 bursting seam, so I may wait til next season to do a repair.

My trout vest came from LLBean in 1974.
The pockets are worn out in the corners and it's needed zipper repairs a few times, but far worst is that somehow it's shrunk over the years

Just don't eat a bugger. They tend to get caught in your throat!

What! No Mossy Oak or Realtree? Not my type of crowd I guess!

Even my Orvis waders have a nice cattail camo pattern on them.

I'm certainly glad us Texans are given a pass on the cowboy hat thing. I'd hate to look like a hillbilly or something.
Well, since it is scrunched up West Texas style and has a permanent sweat ring maybe I do.

Default Re: Dress code explained

I enjoyed that a lot. (not the booger, the article) A couple of years ago, my S.I.L. and I were heading to the rivers. We stopped at a busy rest area and decided we should lock the van because, "there was over $1000.00 of fly fishing equipment in there" Then we realized that for some guys, that would be 1 rod case!
In honor of this we founded the Gentleman's Snobby and Elitist Fly Fishing, Meat Grilling and Liquid Barley Appreciation Society (G.S.&E.F.F.M.G.& L.B.A.S., for short). There are currently 4 active members. We usually roll in a 2000 mini-van, camp at $15.00 per night rustic campsites, catch fish and have a great time.
