Fly fishers are among the proudest of outdoor enthusiasts. We can always tell when we arrive at a trailhead if anyone else if fishing just by looking around for Sage or Orvis stickers and TU specialty license plates. We all wear caps that show off our favorite brands or fly shops or guides services. Heck, many of us even carry iPhones with covers that have trout spots.
We ask, are they just posers? Would a real fisherman have a smartphone (which can’t find signal in much of the Smokies) with mere trout spots? Or would he carry one of these?
No trout spots here but notice the top corner that opens a bottle of beer!
We’ve done our good deed for the day. You’re welcome!
