Default Re: Fishing Hat

That Akubra is a great looking hat. Might have to order one.

Anyway, back to the question. I'm with you about how I look in hats, which is to say, not photogenic. However, I'm a bit of a hat junkie, as I'm always hoping to find the ONE that will look good on my melon. However, living here in AZ, you have to consider sun protection before looks when considering a fishing hat, and I have my favorites.

Stetson Expedition (looks a bit like the Akubra)
Three or four boonie hats when it gets warm
Tilleys Airflo

These all are wide brimmed, which keeps most of the sun off my face and my neck. None of them look good on my head. Although, if I wear a buf pulled up over my nose, I look kinda gangster-ish or Special Ops, which I hear the young girls dig.

Good luck.
