Default Thank God for understanding officers

I spent the morning throwing flies at very sluggish LMB. The cel phone rings and it's my buddy letting me know that the Pikerel were bitting pretty good on the other side of the island.
Without wasting too much time I left the bass to warm up and jumped into my car. As I traveled down the service road I see lights in my rear view mirror and realized I was being pulled over. Conversation went like this:

Officer: Do you realize your not wearing a seat belt sir?
Marco: Ummm, yes I do. I'm sorry officer.
Officer: long pause... Do you realize your wearing rubber pants?!?!?!?
Marco: They're waders officer, fish are bitting fish. I was in a bit of a rush.
Officer: Put on your seatbelt, good luck with the fish...

Man I miss pickrel! When I was still living in NJ a friend and I had access to OceanSpray's properties and could fish the "not in use" bogs that were loaded and I mean loaded with picks! Fun stuff, fortunately I've never had to explain why I was wearing rubber pants!!!

Don't know what I would do without them. The Largemouth can be hit or miss but I always come across a hungry Pickerel. Especially this time of year when the bass give you 2 shakes of the head then just lay there, I'll take a Pickerel any day of the week.
As far as the "rubber pants" explaination. All's well that ends well.

You are lucky, we don't have pickerel or understanding officers around here.

Along with the rubber pants, you probably had a funny hat on too.
Yer lucky that they didn't toss you in a rubber room and throw away the key.

I've been cut a break or two by Troopers who fly fish.

Sometimes I forget ant stop for coffee or cigarettes between fishing spots. I wonder why people are staring at me till I realize I'm still wearing my waders...

Funny but a lot of places I go here people are suspicious if you're not wearing them. You just can't wear cleats when you go inside places here.

Amazing how different our surrounding are, yet we both catch fish! We actually go to Central Park and fly fish for Carp just to watch peoples faces when we catch 10lb fish in the middle of Manhattan!
