Used to be really popular around here, but come to think of it, I haven't seen anyone doing this in a while....

I used to make fun of the guys with fish stickers on their trucks.

Then I saw my friend's fish tattoo.

only issued to those who have successfully passed the initiation process and sponsered into the hardcore club. If you do not understand the symbol you should not apply.

This.

What is the deal with showing a whitetail with an arrow through it?* I mean, wasn't the standard AR15 team member image good enough?

My problem, if you could call it that, with the hook hats was I know damn well at some point I would hook myself, the roof of my car, or something whilst wearing it.

It screams "douchebag" just like Browning and "Salt Life" decals.

It's people who want everyone to know that they are the cool people who fish and is usually accompanied by Costa sunglasses, deck shoes and a fishing shirt worn year around even if they don't ever fish. It's just important to look like they do

At our local MLB team's home game the gate nazis made a kid take his off his hat as it was a threat to safety.

For me its just sort of pride in your fishing. No different then a buck track on the back window of your truck.

Why would it bother anyone enough to memorialize their feelings on a gunboard?

I equate it to the douchenozzles who leave all the stickers and tags on their flat billed hats... I HATE those

While we're on the subject of hats, alot of bubbas here (south) will go buy artfully crafted "distressed" hats (the ones that look like they've been beat to shit but are clean as can be) and wear them around...
both are lame imo
