Well, since it is scrunched up West Texas style and has a permanent sweat ring maybe I do.

I went fishing at the local stream this afternoon (NICE OUTSIDE!!!). Here's a pic of my daily ride:

I spent more for the rod and reel on the windshield than I paid for the Jeep! It's a matter of prioritizing.....

BTW...That Jeep is fully loaded, and we do take it off-road. Straight six gas sipping version.

Hi Paul,

I've known that stuff for a long time, I have managed to fool a lot of people into thinking I was an old salt at this just with my gear

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.
This is a GREAT quote. How can I be a part of said society? I'm pretty sure I'm already a member of the Buffalo chapter, I just did not know we had a name

If you dig out some of the older magazines that's exactly what the "cover models" looked like. And I'm talking about only 20 years or so .
This phenomenon where everyone feels the need to dress alike is relatively new.

I didn't realize it until now. I need a fly fishing make-over. There has got to be a trendy salon in the Castro that caters to metro-sexual fly fishers. Gotta look sharp out on the water, proper manscaping and whatnot. Here in San Francisco a lot of the hipsters are sporting handlebar mustaches - that has gotta be a classic retro look while standing in a river.
My first thought while contemplating a trip is,"will I catch the lady fly fisher's eyes?"
So does anybody have 10 grand to help me get started?
Thanks in advance.

Uh, getting outfitted in the Castro may generate some interest, but you may slightly miss your target demographic...??

sorry who ever you are, nice keds... Some sorority girl called, wants her glasses back.
He is spin fishing, so hopefully he does not frequent this site, if he does, he needs the fashion article!
