more to my prior point.
Conway Bowman from the Howler Brothers blog:
"Why do you think a culture similar to surf and skate culture is emerging in fly fishing?
Both sports and the guys a gals who participate in them are into the
adventure of getting away from the day to day grind and finding
adventure. Both sports parallel fly fishing because fly fishing is a
soulful trip where ever you choose to do it. Currently, there is a
noticeable shift away from the status trip in fly fishing with the elite
crowd and movement towards the more adventure/soul crowd. It’s
refreshing to see some dude in surf trunks, Converse high tops and an
old vintage 70′s Fenwick fiberglass 12 wt casting to tarpon and out
fishing the in crowd! I love that. That’s cool stuff."
