Default Re: Dress code explained

so true! Big T, the Blue, Taylor, especially the Pan...
Totally explains the judgmental looks anglers give each other.
I fished a very famous C&R last fall. It was snowing on and off, so I wore a huge 1990's columbia down parka. Lots of funny looks at the michelin man...

They didn't mention the lanyard though, I thought that was the cool new jewelry.
Also, you can use a sharpie to hide the Cabela's logo on all that affordable gear, until you save up and remortgage for a sage.

My first waders had built in rubber boots, no wonder nobody would talk to me!
If you really want to be cool, when someone asks what you are using just be really vague, "nymphs", "midges"," a good drift", "dries"

My favorite sun hat is a bit dorky, probably calls out 'NOOB!' from a mile away, but I love wearing that darn hat. Same with camo... might just spell out 'redneck idiot', but it works. Love my camo!

craigslist in colorado frequently has complete setups for sale because some yuppie bought all the right gear, used it about 5 times, and realized that angling is hard/not always fun. A good place to score the right gear at a reasonable price. No joke, complete his and hers head to toe setups with really nice gear.

Here's my take on the matter-

Barnum was right.

So I'm guessing that wading in my cut-off bluejeans, with a pair of Teva's on my feet and a fire department tee-shirt and ball-cap probably has me NOT winning any fashion awards?

And I was looking at waders at Cabela's yesterday.... They had a GREAT deal on a pair of neoprene camo waders in the Bargain Cave.... too bad that they were too small for my feet, or they would have come home with me!!

Guess I gotta save-up my 5-cent bottle returns for that new pair of Simms!!!

wasn't sure what you meant, had to look it up.

"The Barnum effect is named after P.T. Barnum, the showman who declared "there¹s a sucker born every minute." He found many ways to separate "suckers", as he called gullible people, from their money.

I'd have to agree.

But I can't find where it tells whether a silk tie or wool tie is preferred.
