    Default Re: Dress code explained

    I have seen it all when i fish and i dress in whatever i have and sometimes waders sometimes shorts or jeans . i do see the models fishing looking like they stepped off the pages of a magazine and most times they are beginners that don't stick with the sport long..

    Sometimes, if I feel too stylish*, I'll pick my nose. If the slobs around me don't pass the pork rinds and chewing tobacco, I'll eat the booger. That gets me into the club quicker than anything imaginable.

    *Hasn't really happened yet.

    Sheepishly, I admit to investing in Orvis waders/boots a couple of years ago.

    My Columbia vest is older than I can remember, though, and I've been sewing it back together for about a decade. Think it's got another 10 years in it. There's currently only 1 bursting seam, so I may wait til next season to do a repair.

    My trout vest came from LLBean in 1974.
    The pockets are worn out in the corners and it's needed zipper repairs a few times, but far worst is that somehow it's shrunk over the years

    I was going fly fishing until my wife suggested it, now I can't tell who is outsmarting who!

    Being "one with nature" requires a knowledge of what animals are living nearby and a weapon of sufficient magnitude to give you at minimum an equal chance of survival. No one has an invisible aura that animals can detect and sense your good intentions.

    Just don't eat a bugger. They tend to get caught in your throat!

    What! No Mossy Oak or Realtree? Not my type of crowd I guess!

    Even my Orvis waders have a nice cattail camo pattern on them.
    Remember, no one likes to be behind the big truck, but that's better than being under it!

    I'm certainly glad us Texans are given a pass on the cowboy hat thing. I'd hate to look like a hillbilly or something.
    Well, since it is scrunched up West Texas style and has a permanent sweat ring maybe I do.

    I enjoyed that a lot. (not the booger, the article) A couple of years ago, my S.I.L. and I were heading to the rivers. We stopped at a busy rest area and decided we should lock the van because, "there was over $1000.00 of fly fishing equipment in there" Then we realized that for some guys, that would be 1 rod case!
    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.
