outlaw stick swingers

i am not what you may consider a typical fly fisher....i am 6'2", 290 lbs, 6 body peircings, three tatoos, and a gunshot scar, shave my head in the summer, and wade the creeks in a pair of cut off army fatigues and sandals...i have been flyfishing for 24 yaears ( since age 6)..i am anything but typical, except for my reverence for the wild and my unnatural need to flyfish to be content....am i the only stick swinging outlaw? just curious.

Smile You are not alone

My brother is like you...
He took some body peircing studs and had me tie fly patterns on them so it would look like he got a dry fly stuck in his face...

He said he gets lots of funny looks from the other people out fishing... :hehe:

There is one particular location I would love to take you fly fishing with me. I am sure with you by my side I would be able to throw my spey line in the sweet runs without the many others getting in my way.

No I have not seen "outlaw flyfishers" as you describe.

Only problem is up here in GLs county, it is cold during the best part of the steelhead and salmon fishing seasons, so unless you are really hard core, warm clothes are a must along with insulated waders.

Well it depends. If your single most women I know are partial to purple. If married follow Leftys advice and if it aint chartruese its no use.

Question

Do unintentional, inadvertent, self inflicted hooksets count as "piercings" once they are removed?!

I dunno.....

I dunno if it counts or not - what about a "genuine" barbed spey fly in your left earlobe - they come in some real, neat colors - you could have chartreuse, purple and pink all in the same fly! Now THAT should satisfy any gal. (And to think - I know guys who paid a doctor to remove them!) :hehe:

For today and tomorrow, you could follow the lead of Mardi Gras and a 'King's Cake' with purple, green and yellow; oh, and don't forget the beads from Ash Wednesday through Holy Saturday, though, it's just purple.

I don't know about the piercings - but I'm up for a tattoo of a Black GP - that is if a certain well-known beach-ninja/artist that I know gets around to the design

Hey, Sean.....

In a few years, you will be AMAZED at how smart your parents are!

Stick to fishing, and the schoolbooks. Leave the blue hair and the piercings to others - it will pay dividends for you in the long run in health, wealth, and happiness. I mean this sincerely.

Bob K and Fred

We missed a few generations I think. At the health club I work out at lunch time I am the only one it seems with out a tattoo. Most of the 40 and under people seem to have them even some of those over 40.

Hey, Hal -

When I was in the Marines, I THOUGHT about getting a tattoo, just a simple one on my wrist - Sgt. R. J. Krawczyk, my serial number, USMC. I never got drunk enough, though.

Many times in my life, I have reflected on it - not doing it was the SMARTEST moves I ever made. Oh, yeah, that would have looked great in the corporate world. Even applying for a decent job. (Just think what blue hair would do for you!)

I remember guys with some gal's name on their arm or chest, then having it removed (sort of) and replaced with another gal's name, then finally having it "disguised" as a ship or tank or something else. I also remember guys waking up, looking at their bandaged arm, and yelling, "What is this!" Then almost being sick at what they had done to themselves.

Why is it the meanest looking guy has a tattoo with hearts and "Mother" on his arm? And a mild-mannered kid has a dagger with "Death before Dishonor" on it? I guess we aren't too smart.

People don't understand that to be an individual, you just don't need these things - they are actually a part of a "uniform" and "complying" and giving in to peer pressures!
