Default Fishing Hats

Which style of hats work best for fishing?
Ball caps are not working for me, due to too much glare

Cowboy hats are not too bad, but are not good at swatting wasps!

*Also note that I have a small head (6 3/4), and sometimes small is too large! And yes boy sizes are way too small...

My favorite hat is the Airflo from Tilley. It is light weight, water proof and cool, while giving good glare protection and shade to the back of the neck and ears.

Default HATS FOR FISHING

My choices are based on.

Location--climatic conditions.

I am on the river some 200 days a year. Under normal warm conditons l like a cowboy hat, that keeps the sun off my face, allows for a good forward shade.

If the weather is cold then l wear various head gear to keep warm, could be a ball cap or other.

If l was fishing saltwater flats then l need both back of neck protection and good forward vision, use a flats bill cap for that.

If you have the effect of glare l would suggest that you find the right fitting for sun glasses, the right lens color and and those that have side shades, that should solve your problem.

As a matter of interest to you , l like copper colored lenses for most of my fishing, with the exception of fishing saltwater flats, l will use differences to suit the prevailing light and bottom conditions. Polarised of course.
