    Is there a sociologist on the board that can comment in a learned fashion about why this thread elicits all this response?

    Looks like someone's glycogen levels are a little low. I'd recommend a bottle or two of

    to help ease your crankiness. Or perhaps...

    is more your style?

    My thoughts exactly!

    Does the hat in my avatar qualify as a flat brimmed hat? Do my layers under my rain jacket make it look puffy? Can you clearly see how my tube has a busted zipper for the top of the back pouch?

    Or do you see me holding a nice rainbow during early morning on Pass Lake?

    Sorry old man. Smart phone and fat fingers. I'm only modestly illiterate.

    I'd wear a puffy jacket like the other kids, but they only come in "little people" sizes. Just to clarify, if you're under 6'2" and 250#, you are indeed a "little people." :p

    I do own a nice down jacket, but it's ass in the rain. So, alas, I am puffless.

    Same for the hat, blessed with a 7-7/8 hat size, I find I cannot wear hats made for most mere mortals.

    At least they make shoes I can wear.

    (Less facetious now...)

    I could not care less what you wear on the river. Frankly I wear as little gear as I can get away with. I'm quite frightening when it's over 100 out...can you say Daisy Dukes? I jest. Or do I?

    If I ever meet any of you on the river, I've got leader, flies and strong back if you need it. Fishing is too much fun to be spoiled by needless Caste-ing.

    Get it? Caste? Oh never mind.

    It takes a lot of work to be a complete asshole. I have to work hard at it as it is. I have to work very hard to keep this image up.

    Don't know if I agree with the definition of "little people", I'm a shade above 6'2" and a shade below 170. I like to think I'm bigger than most people, it helps my ego ;)

    Better watch that wind, if you are ever in Montana. You may find yourself in North Dakota before you stop rolling...

    Puffy coats are generally Patagonia down filled jackets. They are warm yet worthless in rain.

    No hard feelings here. I changed my avatar on purpose.

    Not only that Richard Olmstead made a body mass index joke, at the expense of someone else, that was pretty damn funny. That's unheard of...
