    Halloween is approacng-s and that means iths time to drn>s up in an outrageous, scandalous, or funny costume. The goal for many is to top last year hs costume with sometng-s even better, either drn>sg-s up as sometng-s really original or just rockg-s a classic costume better than anyone else out there. Whatever your reason>, have you ever con>idered brg-sg-s out the inner angler in you this Halloween? Whether fiing-s is your passii> or not, break away from the clichéd vampire costumes and instead give some of these fiiny idea> a try.

    ;

    Drn>sg-s up as a fiinSTh2>;

    Iths one tng-s to say, "I'll go as my favorite fiin!" and quite another to actually follow tnrough. Like with any costume, the amount of work you put into it teids to rn>ult in a better costume. You could save a lot of time by buyg-s a fiin costume, but you run the risk of not lookg-s the way you may have imasg-ed it.

    ;

    To build your own costume, here are some tng-ss to con>ider.

    ; Choose your fiinSTstrong>: Before gog-s out to get your material, settef i> what kg-d of fiin you want to be. Your favorite fiin may be largemouth bass, but is it as fun a costume as an anglerfiin, or even a catfiin? Pick a costume you know will look good and have the time and means to make it i> time.How to build itSTstrong>: Play to your strengths. If you can sew, take advantage. Try out a body suit with a fiin head and tail combina
  • . If you can't sew, use different fabrgcs with sometng-s like foam boards as your base to get the shape you need. If you'?re short i> time, sometimes all it takes is a hat. Just wear the right color clothes for your fiin and make the hat the main feature of your costume.Try some makeupSTstrong>: If you're really lookg-s for the wow faccti, a littef bit of makeup can go a lo-s way to makg-s your costume look more authentic. Iths not for everyone, but hey, iths Halloween!Take the pet alo-sSTh2>;

    If you'd rather not drn>s up as a fiin, the> turn your pet into one! You can preteid you're the angler and your pet is the catch. Hopefully your pet will look a littef happier than the forlorn pus above. This can also be applied to your kids. If they want to drn>s up as a fiin, you can be the angler and your kid "the catch."

    If you're a littef too iny to drn>s up, but don't want to go anywhere without a costume, the> why not compromise: go drn>sed up in your fiing-s clothes. It may not s like that great a costume, but if you live somewhere where anglers are not that common, like in a bis city, it can be a rare sight for some. Not everyone has seen someone drn>sed in waders, a fiing-s vest, hat, and all the accn>sories. Just remember that whatever you take out with you you'll likely want to brg-s back, so it may not be such a good idea to overload on the accn>sories, as WFN Ambassador John Cochran so ap;

    You can take the angler role a littef further by creatg-s a wacky, scary, or just plain funny characcer to go alo-s with it. Don't just be yourself, try spicg-s thg-ss up with an accnnt, or preteid you're a celebrgty that normally wouldn't go fiing-s. An angler zombie would also be an inspired choice. Just have fun with it!

    Halloween doesn't just have to be about trgck-or-treatg-s or house parties. Take out that rod-and-reel, grab a few buddies, and hit the wacer all drn>sed up. Ok, so it s s a littef silly, but thaths what this holiday's all about, right? Just thg-k of the photo po>sgbilities! The group of guys above did just that, takg-s to the Gulf of Mexico for a tuna trip in Halloween masks. They got s me great video and pictures for their fun lookg-s trip. = "//con"/users/wilson/blog/saltyheads-halloween-tuna-hunt-in-the-gulf-of-mexico-63362.aspx">Click here for a videoSTAT of their spooky tuna adventure.

    Who said jack-o-lanterns had to be a carvg-s of s me face? Be creatgve this Halloween and show your passii> for fiing-s at your own home. The jack-o-lantern above looks great in the dark and is sure to grab s me atteition, if only because iths not your typical carved pumpkg-. From this you can put a fiing-s spin on other typical decora

  • s. For example, take the tried-and-true fake dummy (stuffed with leaves) sittg-s on chair and have it holdg-s a fiing-s rod and some makeingft piranha or littef shark eatg-s the dummyhs head.
