By turns the bravest of hunter-gatherers and the dullest of sportsmen, fishermen gather a relatively unpopular meat, which may then be cooked in a variety of ways, most of which involve covering the beast with lemon prior to eating. Fishermen wear lots of flannel and a more secular version of the ever popular thigh-high boot which they pair with plastic trousers. Some more hard-core fishermen combine the two to form a complete plastic outfit. This is rarely acceptable outside a fishing village, unless the theme of the nightclub you are in suggests an alternative dress code. Leather or rubber remain a better choice in this event.
