Rip, funny read. I think they were aiming that at me. I did have several laughs though. I'm the guy that dresses in white shorts, white shirt and ragged white bass pro hat and a pair of wading shoes and heads off down in the spring water up to about my waist. Diane is one of the regulars that describes me that way and then she tells her hubby who lets her fish with us guys. "He hammers the hell out of em". It might just be what ya know.

Don't be knocking the straw hat. I absolutely love my Stetson Breezer.

As for me, my clothing(that's invisible) is either a drab olive or camo color. My hat is camo. $20 polarized shades from Cabela's. Blue stream Cabela's waders(bargain cave). Orvis Encounter II reel(love it as much as my Okuma's) with orange fly line(go figure). Grayish custom fly rod(made by a man I know. St.Croix blank...awesome rod). Leader and tippet are clear and low vis green color. A camo shoulder bag. My cigs.....and of course a black lighter.LOL
IMO. It's better to try blending with the background than being highly visible. Brands,prices, stuff like that is all what the little voice in our head tells us we need.

Never, ever, ever ...... !! have more than one bit of 'new gear' on you at a time. Rest should be a touch 'shabby.' New Korker boots and rough looking waders are 'ok,' as everyone will scope in on the 'new boots.'

'Wadya think about them new hi tuck buuts Neibor?'

'Feelin' fine for a first go, but boots take time.'

Etc.

I remember when I first started flyfishing and bought everything that was "required". First time I went out, I felt like you did on the first day of school, and it took about half the day to get rigged up. At the place I went, there were a couple guys sitting in lawn chairs, drinking beer, and fishing bobber and worms. They had quite a laugh. I suppose it was because although I had all the right gear, I had no clue how to use it.

I waded in jeans and sneakers until my sons bought me a set of nice, breathable waders a few years back... If I'd only known... one really doesn't have to freeze to fly fish...

well, I just sewed, patched and washed my vest and it didn't disintegrate. The stains didn't come out, but maybe they help hold it together?? Fishpond, Simms and Wm Joseph are just going to have to wait and suffer another decade waiting for me to spring for new stuff.
