Dictionary.com defines the word bum as follows: A person who avoids work and sponges on others. A loafer, a hobo, a derelict. On its own, there’s nothing flattering about the term. However, when the word trout precedes it, forming the compound –trout bum, it somehow becomes complimentary. A complimentary classification where trucker hat wearing, PBR tall boy drinking, scraggly bearded dudes with untreatable fishing addictions fall. On the other hand, Jeff Currier keeps a pretty close shave and doesn’t really have a particular hat preference. He likes PBR (short ones and tall ones), but hell, he likes all beer. In other words, Currier breaks the stereotypical mold of the modern trout bum. However, his lifestyle, and the fact that he’s made a career out of chasing all kinds crazy fish in all kinds of crazy places suggests, he’s got the gig pretty well figured out. Let’s face it, Currier is a role model for all of us fledgling trout bums.
