If you _______ you might be metrosexual

During the weekend fishing the Skagit/Sauk the term metrosexual seem to find its way into our conversations frequently. We started to wonder what if anything might tip you off as to who is metrosexual.

We came up with a couple but I will only post 1. I know there are many more out there. This is all for fun so if you were the one don't take it personally.

If you drive a Saab to the native hole to fish for steelhead you might be metrosexual.

My contribution:

...if you show up wearing pressed L.L. Bean or Orvis clothing from head to toe...

...sporting a vest with over 20 things dangling from retractors...

Does this mean I have to get rid of my CAC Cigar smoking Jacket (Made in England) and Fez? I really like that smoking jacket.

Kerry,

If you drive your SAAB down to the water at the Native Hole, you ARE a metrosexual.

Juro,

Don't knock the wine and basket. I had the pleasure last spring of floating the upper Sauk with a couple of the Stilly/Skagit boys and they pack a mean picnic lunch and sipping a nice cab-sav along the river is something I could get used to. These two were definetly not metrosexual.

I would add that if your indicator is color coordinated with your ear warming headband, you are a metrosexual. Hell for that matter if you have an indicator on...

Hey, I'd like to be driving a Hummer...

they are a lot closer to the size of my semi and on the road I feel safer when "you crazies" come over here from the coast and tear up and down the river looking for a place to skate one up. :hehe: :hehe: :hehe:

PS, I am definitely not a "metrosexual"

Homer,

I have not cast the tip yet. I am probably 9-12 days away from even seeing a river. It is spooled up though and I will give you a full report.

As for those two gentlemen, they are the real deal. A couple of class acts even if they do throw Skagit lines

... If you have ever said "Brand X would do the job as well, but I only get out 2 or 3 times a year, and I felt I deserved to treat myself to the best when I do" ...

If you NEED to read the fishing reports on a guide's web page or post a thread asking for reports on a web forum, then my dear boy, you are a metrosexual.

If you feel the perfect fishing experience is one shared with 15-20 friends from the internet, yes it is sad but true, you are a metrosexual.

If you complain that "this steelheading thing sure is tough, I have been out three times and never even hooked one", open up your Websters and see the picture of yourself next to metrosexual.

By the way, anyone ever read one of those guide pages where the fishing wasn't really good?

I've been a "metro-sexual" all my life, so I can help you guys out. Who knows, maybe more than a few of qualify, and don't even know it?
There are exceptions to evry rule, but if you can say yes to more than a couple of these things, you very well could be a "metro-sexual"...not that there is anything wrong with that
mac user
gets hair cut more than 6 times a year
thinks that real race car drivers can turn right and left
reads the "New Yorker"
buys more than two pairs of shoes a year
enjoys international cuisine
wears designer specs (VERY IMPORTANT!)
goes to at least one movie in a year that requires subtitles
has read Roland Barth, Susan Sontag or Don Demilo
I could go on...hey, no one is implying that there is anything wrong with metro-sexuals...right?
