    Well hell.... there goes my self esteem. I used to think I was a flyfisherman. But between this and reading on another thread that nymphing under an indicator isn't really flyfishing, I'm not so sure anymore.

    Yes, but what is a little serf esteem, when compared to looking good streamside. Why, some days, I never wet a line, just posing around a picturesque tree, or other photogenic backdrops, with rod in hand, and to share my fashions, with the gear fishers, and cause them to feel pangs of envy.

    I wear a baseball cap. It doesn't advertize anybody on it. All it has printed on it is "Old Man" With a picture of a Brown trout. I wear my cap all the time. I take it off to sleep and take a shower. I have several of the same, all different colors.

    My wife started me on these. She got me an Orange cap for my riding in the hills during hunting season. I went the rest of the way and got the other colors.

    Yeah and my color scheme when I get out is what I'm wearing at the time. In the summer time it could be a bright colored "T" Shirt or a drab one, also with jean shorts and tennies. I haven't worn my waders is about three years now. In the winter time, it's a camo jacket, jeans and tennies.. I'm quite the fashion plate. For the city dump that is.

    I have a pipe and will bring it with me next time I hit the river. My flask travels with me as well, but I bring the utilitarian one instead of the leather-wrapped and fill it with peppermint schnapps instead of scotch. Freshest breath on the stream, bitches.

    I'm glad you clarified that...from the post above I thought maybe the various caps were all you wore. Old Man on a quad wearin just an orange baseball cap is some high octane nightmare fuel.

    When you get out? Are you in prison, or something? If not, then I sure hope that you're not a mime!:confused:
