I ended up making multiple "Fly Rod Tube Socks" for my own fly rods. I felt like I needed to do something else. I got inspired by the changing weather and Steve Zissou's hat (which was obviously influenced by Jacque Cousteau's hat). After several restarts, some tutoring from my sister and a lot of knitting, here is the result. Yeah - Noe commandeered it from me (I'm such a pushover). I think it is really close, but the one Bill Murray wears in the movie fits tighter and wears shallower than the one I just made. Oh well - that just means I have to keep trying!
