Uber Goober

Tom Rosenbauer - author of The Orvis Guide to Prospecting for Trout: How to Catch Fish When There's No Hatch to Match, The Orvis Fly-Tying Guide, and a whole host of other titles - is a prolific writer, a patient teacher, and an accomplished fly tyer and angler. And while he may know his stuff, he's also a first rate goober.

As evidence of Tom's gooberitude, I offer the following Orvis promotional video.

If you're not a fly tyer (and you should be) it really is a good sale on quality flies. Still, I find Tom's gooberishness hard to dismiss.

Sorry Tom ... you're just a little over the top.

Problem? There's no problem. Tom seems to wear gooberitude like the wrestlers of Ancient Greece wore olive oil - with unbridled enthusiasm and sweaty pride. I salute the man.
