    I know my flat broad brimmed hat looks stupid. However, i think cancer looks even more stupid.

    Nice hats, Daryle. Too nice. I can't detect the slightest sweat stain or particle of dirt on any of those. You must lead a clean life!

    This isn't a thread about fashion, it's about human nature, the passing of the torch, the fear that the new generation is somehow putting a tradition at risk because they "look" different, "talk" differently, and "fish" differently. It's just change, roll with it folks.

    Well, except you bead fisherman - you're a strange lot, indeed! :rolleyes:

    Not sure
    +1 Change (or more specifically, the fear of it) is probably the greatest driver of behavior in the US today. Sure, change can be scary. Look no further than the Great Recession and its adverse impacts on so many of us. But change has also powered so many of the things that we all appreciate and which benefit us daily, like AL Gore's invention of the Internet!

    I can do without already short product life-cycles getting even shorter, though.

    At least good quality fishing hats and wading jackets can be made to last for a long time, if you take good care of them. Who cares if they go out of style? At least they aren't electronic gadgets that become nearly obsolete in just a few months.

    You need to pump up some to be bigger than me. I can submerge a boat pretty well now.
