Fishing in a Buff…The best Vaughn Cochran Buff design online poll

Most of you probably have heard of Buff Headwear and what a great new fishing product it is. I discovered them myself a few years back at a tournament that I was fishing and thought that here is a really unique product. Then I saw that my friend Pat Ford, the photographer, had supplied the Buff Company with the design. The light bulb went off and a week later I was their newest artist. I have been doing the “Vaughn Cochran Angler Series” artwork for three years now and it couldn’t be more fun. So…..

It’s time again for the new Buff designs for 2010. This year however, I am putting up the designs for you to vote on. I’ll take your results to the decision makers (the deciders) and see what happens. Just view the Buff designs below and then please take a moment to make a comment about which ones you like the best. Give me your top three to five designs.¬†OK, if you have to you can tell me which one is your least favorite.

Buffs are more popular than ever and most anglers are finding that they need several of them to make it through a week of fishing. It is OK to wash them after every fishing day. You can even wash them after every fish. It keeps you cool and refreshed throughout the day. Some anglers have discovered that they have lucky Buffs…I don’t know, I just report the news. They’re also great for keeping the bugs away AND…you can even drink a beer through them.


Your pick will be added to the designs from the past year to make up the “Vaughn Cochran Anger Series” for 2010.

  1. Oh, and another thing . . . INSECT SHIELD!!

    It would be great if you could add that feature to your Buffs!

  2. Vaughn,

    “Fly Squares” is my favorite! WHY, you might ask?

    In my humble opinion, at a distance of greater than a few feet away, more complicated designs become unrecognizable blobs. I prefer the clean, crisp appearance and bright colors of Fly Squares.

    2. Blue Water Fly
    3. Crab Fly

  3. 1. Bluewater Fly
    2. Lean Green Fighting Machine
    3. Blue Bones ( I would aslo like to see it with redfish)

  4. Vaughn,
    1. FF or Die!
    2. Rolling Thunder (Tarpon!)
    3. Fly Squares
