Got it, Riverpirate. Way to start off the new year! With that beautiful fish, confident smile, distinguished and rugged beard, and the classy paraphernalia you need to be on the cover of American Angler. In other words, great photo!

Been out of town for awhile, nice to be back where it's warm. Nice fish Pirate! What color were you using? Got a new fly I'm working on and since you're the only guy out fishing I'll get you one.

It is called a Buff. I would not be caught without one, winter or summer.

Thanks! I've seen others with them and always been curious. Where you you get them? I have something similar made by Loki I got at the Mountain Crossing store at Neels Gap, but I can't see where they carry them anymore or even that Loki makes them. Can I search BP or Cabela's or whoever?

Thanks. Didn't mean to hijack this post. I saw where BP had them. I had looked before but didn't know what to call them and never found anything except the standard neck gaiter or bala clava
