Punk, Tattoos and Fly Fishing

Im a pretty young dude who likes "old dude" things most of the time. My perfect day is watching COPS, tying flies, drinking Jameson, and petting my dog. I've been Fly Fishing since I was 13 years old, and have loved every minute of it. I fucking hate team sports (probably due to the fact that I am an only child, and my parents didn't really give a fuck if I played sports or not.) so fishing was perfect for me. Also, I had one of those bullshit "teenage angst" periods of my life, and I really got into all that 924 Gilman shit (which I still am I guess...)
I Always felt like I belonged in the Fly Fishing community. I used to fish with people who are 20+ years older than me and it was awesome. But that was when I was a kid. Now that I am slightly grown up, have a decent amount of tattoos, and wear clothing that people who fly fish don't usually wear... Im almost like a outcast in the fishing community.
I am just ranting about bullshit that means nothing in the long run. Honestly, I don't really care if the dude next to me thinks I am an asshole because I am wearing a Blood For Blood hoodie instead of some 300+ dollar jacket from a fishing store. I still wave and try and make small conversations with these people, but in the end, they just look at me like a retarded Brad Pitt from "A River Runs Through It". I love Fly Fishing, I love Tattoos, and I love music.
And I really fucking love Whiskey.
