Default Trout toddlers, tweeners, toasters, et al

A recent post identifying a certain category of fly anglers caused a bit of a fuss, and maybe this one will too. (my target will be universal humor, but I am by no means a sniper in this field)

Trout Toddlers- These can be identified as either cute and precocious anglers, or children who recently thought it would be fun to go trout fishing with a parent. They will likely be surrounded by a bulky bright colored garment, and poking a bug with a stick. However, they may occasionally stop to wave a longer stick around and maybe even hook a fish for said parent to then attempt to grab.

Trout Tweens- A truly amazing creature that has the ability to send 6 text messages per minute to their myspace friends with one hand, while fishing a wet fly with the other. Someday they might attempt a fishing method that involves the other hand, but not until they get a bluetooth headset for their birthday.

Trout Toasters- An overeducated crowd that is prone to pass around a flask of teenaged single-malt after each trout caught on a dry fly with a green rod that came out of an aluminum tube. They can often also be seen at lunchtime or the end of the day uncorking a vintage product of the Rhone or Napa valley and consuming it only after it has been in actual stemware.

Trout Titans (of industry)- These unbearable characters will generally arrive at an overpriced and overblown river in either a range rover or a helicopter. They will be glad to let one of their guides string up their rod they have never fished and completely rig up their system of flies. They of course will be using their first bluetooth headset and talking about "merging synergies" and "strategic sourcing" while this happens. Later in the day, it will seem like they are talking to themselves while they are hogging the prime spot in the bow of the drift boat, although they are actually in the process of draining the battery on their 2nd bluetooth headset after that of the first was exhausted.

Anybody know of some other amusing stereotypes?
