Freaky Fly Boy

Here's an image that I had featured in the original Gallery of the Absurd back in the late 1990s. It's the cover from a catalog I had received in the mail. I like fly fishing and don't usually hold it up to ridicule, but there's something about the guy on this cover that really freaks me out.

Let's take a closer look at this dude's face. Although the quality of this older scan isn't what I would like, here's a cropping that I've enlarged a bit:

Is he sneezing or trying to catch a trout? Is he allergic to fish? Is he conjuring this trout out of the water with his formidable psychic powers? Does he have any teeth at all? These questions have been nagging me for the past 10 years.
