Are You A Hipster? ~ Sunday Tippets, Damsel Style

So, we all have experienced wearing or seeing those silly little things called... Yes, fanny packs.  The name "fanny pack" is derived from the fact that they were traditionally worn facing the rear above the fanny.  (Let's go slang term here, shall we?)   Despite the name, many do not wear fanny packs on their rear end posterior because they are easier to pick pocket and harder to access.   I'm here to tell you that this invention can cause quite a stir at times.  So, please be mindful of when and where you wear these in public.  I personally, only wear them to ski and fish in.  They are handy and carry those little items that you need to grab conveniently.  You know... tippet, flies, pliers... errr, forceps.  Yes, my Fishpond pack is a more advanced version of a fanny pack, but it still serves the same purpose.  A gadget collector organizer, for when I am on the water.

Here we have the computer guy, ready to hit the town in fashion.

Yes, Mom with kid in tow...  But, doesn't that mean that he has the lead???

Even Spiderman has to keep his extra set of whatever with him!
What the other guy is doing without one, I do not know...

I'm guessing this is storage for his extra thirst...

Ummm... Convenience???

"Help me please!!"

No.  That is not how we wear it, sir.  But, thank you for doing it all the same!

The "groupie" hipsters... and yes, it's on their fannies!  = (

He can clean my house.  And wear it front or back...wherever he wants.

Leather always has a place too...  It's stylin'!!!  Yeah...

You got to "walk the walk"...

And "talk the talk"...

If you are going to wear a fanny pack!

RD's Tippet Of  The Day...  If you want your Fanny Pack noticed,
don't stand next to someone who has you beat!! 


  1. Great post! How do you find these hilarious pics! You don't have to answer that, because I know, but still!
    Thanks for the laugh.

  2. Brian ~ Needed something quick and light today... You know those kind of days??

  3. I double checked each picture too make sure none of them were pictures of me wearing my "Posterior Pouch". Feel better now that I didn't meet your criteria.

    1. Uncle Mel ~ I think that you are safe. We did not include any blogger friends in the line up!

  4. Yeah but you were thinking about one of your blogger friends. Fess up! Here at 3Geezers Fly Shop, we sell fanny packs. Mel uses one to hide his hooch. Me, I won't wear one. You know the joke...does this fanny pack make my butt look big? I would wear them in front and yes, I look like I'm 9 months pregnant. Bubby doesn't have an opinion except to say they taste good.

    1. Howard - Maybe it's time to find a third geezer who can watch the shop dog a little more closely!

    I finally got my Fanny Pack two years ago, not for my trout fishing but for my warm water fishing. I made a few modifications in mine. I cut the belt off and it became my fly fishing warm water tackle box for my popper flies and accessories. It sets in the bottom of my boat, not around my waist. Does it still count as a Fanny Pack?
    My wife and I have changed our trip to Montana; we will be going the first week in August, is this a good time?
