Photography: “Can’t You Hide That Damn Pouch?”

I have worn this pair of Simms Guide Waders for years. In all of fishing, the greatest purchase I have ever made was a pair of Gore-Tex waders that replaced the old grape skin neoprene waders. The second purchase of note was switching to an Intermediate Clear line for lakes….

But anyway, my wife is often sizing up my unkempt appearance while we fish for photo ops. One aggravating site apparently is the pouch on my waders. It is meant to be flipped inward against the chest, but I have always had it outside the waders to access any number of items. And, as a result it shows the wear of time.

I mean it does show some stains from floatants, wet pipe tabacco, sweat, fish slime and water.

I mostly carry pipe tobacco, pipe, lighters, strike indicators, split shot, and other oddities in the pouch. It is just so handy. Some how it gets soiled.

Personally, I think it is part of the charm to wear well worn attire on the water. I mean it doesn’t smell too bad, and I can’t really see it. So, what’s the fuss about.

    Hashtag Simms Classic Guides. They don’t make ’em like that anymore.

    Hubby, you know what I feel like right now? I feel like one of our children just proudly announced, to his entire student body, that he never changes his underwear AND his Mom knows it!

    Seriously, I have made extreme efforts to keep that ugly “pouch” out of photos and now you proudly post a collection of shots of it?? Oh Lord!!

    It sure is hard not to have things like that, but you are showing the experience it’s been through!
    Did you go to the UW?
