    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!
    I don't always fly fish but when I do I prefer salt water. Stay salty my freinds

    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.

    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.
