I have never been a trend setter, in fact i have always found trends to be quite disgusting. In particular I find disgusting the intentional revelry in base living.. first it was cheap beer HA yeah it's soooooo much cheaper than good beer :rolleyes: , then it was the trucker cap.... I am wearing it cause it's dorky that makes it cool yeah right.....:rolleyes:


But now following that same line of thinking I present to you the fly fishing fad of 2014.. No longer do you need names like patagonia... or simms of cloud veil forget 500 dollar wading jackets..


without further adieu I give you.......

THE YELLOW RAIN SLICKER!!!!!

I've been wearing cutoff "jorts" wet wading in the summer the last couple of years. Turns shitty old jeans into a free pair of shorts, and it makes me feel like I'm 10 again. My adaptation of low-brow hipster style to fly fishing. Mountain hikes still involve the quick-dry nylon shorts, no need for permanent chafe damage.

I had a bright blue one just like that. Wore it all over the place. It kept me dry just as long as I wore a sweat shirt under it. If I didn't it would be like it was raining under it. You could work up a sweat under it.

Only if you cut them so short that the pockets show.

Laugh all you want about the Sou'wester. I learned to love them (Purse Seining) and still keep one handy, 40 years later.
We'd usually reverse the hat AND wear the hood, especially when the jellies were flying.
