Fly Fishing: Sunscreen & Vanity’s Price


SwittersB Sun Damage

This collectors edition photo of SwittersB is not because I am that vain, but rather because I was, at times, that and careless. The damage from sun exposure was frequent and at a relatively young age, it shows. I recently had occasion to stand in front of a TV camera for an interview. The shot was situated so giant windows provided light for the shot. It also highlighted my complexion in a shocking way. It was winter and and I did not have any color, save my sun/age spots….many spots. I was a blotchy patchwork of spots. I was aghast as vanity & carelessness came to roost. The back of my hands are equally spotted.

Sunscreen and protection. I do have a few spots on the forehead and collarbone that never quite heal. I am headed to the dermatologist. I know what I will hear. Vanity and carelessness. Ok, don’t lecture me about the briar.

    Yeah Gary, that briar will be another trip to see the doc. Best of luck to you though.

    Good luck Gary, I hope the Dr. visit goes well. As for sunscreen? I’ve only been hitting the water hard for three years now. I don’t think I’ve stopped once to put on sunscreen. I don’t burn but I get darker. I’ll try to work on it, one more thing to think about when all I want to think about is nothing except the moment and the trout.
