The Top Six Signs You May Be A Fat Fly Fisherman

Posted by Tom Chandler 8/16/2012

Signs It's Time To Lose A Little Weight


6) Waders so tight, farts take five minutes to work their way out

5) Instead of hopping from rock to rock like a mountain goat, you crush steamside rocks into gravel

4) Fire department races to your fishing location after receiving reports of downed blimp

3) Your fishing buddy brings his lunch in bag marked "Danger: Radioactive Material."

2) False casting more than three times leaves you winded

1) No matter where you stand on river or stream, water always flows towards you

paul worsterberg of the deplacements: your float tube and personal mobility vehicle is a “Duck”. Especially when you're forced to use the inner tube from one of those giant earth moving machines...

7. Your buddies keep inviting you on trips to Yellowstone's backcountry, telling you it's good for your diet, all the while they believe the bear will eat you and not them, when charged.

A trout cruises into view and says "Holy crap! Look at the size of that HOG! That's gotta be a record for this river!"

CityFlyGuy: When fishing, the trout say “Look at that slab!” There's nothing worse than a stream full of sniggering, disrespectful trout.

Bending over enough to see past your belt to identify what you caught takes longer than it did to land it. The DNR asks you to fish from shore because you are disturbing the water levels. When fishing, the trout say "Look at that slab!"

marty: Once in FL. I was resting after a few hours of fishing one young lasscommented “If we don’t put him back in the water he’s gonna die” I like the use of the word "resting" instead of "I lay dying on the bank" or "blowing like a steam engine." Excellent command of the language...

Bishfish: So scored 6 out of 6 – starting diet tomorrow, or maybe the day after tomorrow, or perhaps……. Did I mention we were launching our "Throw back the fat ones" diet program here at the Underground? For only $59/week we send you encouragement and our scientifically crafted "Meals" (which look an awful lot like three packs of Saltine Crackers for every day).
