Waders and a hoodie maybe a pull over rain top nothing fancy here. Looking the part in the salt is more of a beach bum look. Looking the part to me is standing in the wash of the surf holding up a large striper it has nothing to do with fashion!

And a large striper is the perfect accent accessory to any angling ensemble.

Deep in the shadows like a government agent!!! Hahaha J/K I don't have internet at the house anymore so I steal time on GF's computer. Been fairly busy tying up loose ends and getting things set up for the fall tuna bite, I gotta make some money!!! Believe it or not the only fishing I've done is chasing gills around, no time or money to travel yet so it is what it is.

Ten extra points to Ard!

Odd part is if you 'Have the look' no one looks at you. A fat old Yellow Lab behind you (and back in the day Huskers) brought a lot of folks up for 'Can I ask you a question?' Good times, good talks, maybe I even had some thing of value to say?

I do have a set of paddles on board as emergency propulsion but basically the jet unit on the Honda handles whatever there is.

I don't drift it and when fishing it's a park and wade thing. There is no beauty in trying to bring a salmon or trout to the boat and then net it. That always turns into a circus so I don't do it.

When I get around to writing up last weeks Copper River trip you'll see why the motor is the ticket.

I'm here when you're ready Larry

To me, I look the part when I'm hauling in fish hand over fist and the Orvis catalog guys are swarming in on me to get a peak at what I'm doing. It's whatever your budget allows, but you look like a big jack hole in your Tilly hat if your flogging the water with your pole like a bull whip with absolutely no clue.
