Sponsoring a New Movement

“New Movement” might be a touch grandiose for the subject at hand.


Let me start out by saying, I am not a fan of terrorist Ted Kaczynski nor am I making light of the three people he killed and 23 people he injured before being caught and convicted.

What I am doing, or attempting to do, is to point out visual parallels between my fishing selfies and the famous sketch of the Unabomber.

Hoodie? Check. Sunglasses? Check.

Hoodie? Check. Sunglasses? Check.

See what I mean? The iconic image of the Unabomber is being recreated virtually every time someone photographs me on the water. This is mostly due to my discovery of “solar hoodies” fueled by my hatred of sunscreen. I keep forgetting to take the hood down in time for the photographer to capture whatever magical being I am trying to showcase.

Now, judging by the amount of hoodies I see manufactured and the fact that my size is often sold out by the time I find them…  I doubt I’m alone in the occasional accidental Unabomber homage.   It is this reason why I am starting the hashtag movement, #UnabomberFishingTeam.  I think it’s similar to the genius behind the idea of #FacelessFlyFishing and I’m hoping there are many people like me who are wearing hoodies and sunglasses all year long to join me on Instagram.


Long story short, do you have pictures in a hoodie and sunglasses?  Share them on social media with the UnabomberFishingTeam hashtag!

    Interesting factoid- the Unabomber killed my boss about 3 weeks after I met him. His name was Tom Mosser (check Wikipedia). I showed up for work one day to have the FBI searching our bags and half the staff crying. His manifesto was published in the NYT immediately following.

    I may have such a pic of me but I’m not on instagram.
