Default Re: "hat" love

I collected fly shop logo hats for a while and I'll wear a couple of them, but not while fishing.
When I fish, I nearly always wear an "up-downer" (like Lefty). It's not necessarily for sun protection, but that's good too.
More importantly, I can flip the back down to protect the back of my head from the wind. Headaches from a cold breeze blowing down your neck will ruin a fishing trip every time.

I always wear a ball cap. I have a wide assortment with no real favorite at the moment. All the old favorites have been worn out to the point they are non functional. I'll have to take a photo of the current assortment and post it later.

Default Re: "hat" love

This thread is a great compliment to rod and reel love...I think of my hats as equipment too. I have a bunch; new and old with and without logos, cotton and synthetic but what is most important to me is that they feature a long bill. This not only shades my face from sun but, importantly, my Rx Polarized sun glasses too which enhances my vision. I rarely go fishing without having 2 or 3 from my collection along to suite conditions: how hot, how windy, how stylish (just kidding) or how lucky. I prefere no brand names; if you want me to wear a Budweisser or Orvis hat, pay me to advertise for you!

Here is a relativly new hat made of sun protecting micro fiber, it is light weight, velcro adjustable, has a mesh lining for air circulation, stays on OK when up on plane, has no writing on it and featurs a 4 1/2" long bill.

Lovin this thread!
My favorite hat is a worn out, used-to-be-almost-black CAT hat. I only wear it when fishing now. Its too comfortable to wear anywhere else. That and my wife won't let me wear it anywhere else.
Ill have to get a picture to post.

Default Re: "hat" love

Like many others, I have too many hats, but here's three I actually have pics of. The first one was my lucky hat, A St. Croix baseball cap made of waxed cotton. I called it lucky after a good friend hit me in the head with a huge half ounce spinnerbait. The guy is twice my size and he hit me so hard trying to cast it I actually dropped to my knees and saw stars. When I recovered I found a two inch tear in the hat, but other than a good bump, I was unscathed. A day later, I caught my first brown trout ever, a two-footer, wearing my lucky hat. Unfortunately, I lost this hat and have been trying to replace it.

This is a good warm hat, and has been appropriately beaten up to look aged and weathered.

But this boonie hat I picked up at an army surplus might be the new lucky hat, and it goes on every fishing trip.

Default Re: "hat" love

I also collected "found" hats fore a while and everyone "found"was found on the beach.
The best one had a company logo on it that had nothing to do with fishing, but the hat itself had spent so much time in the surf that it was a soft as a cotton diaper.
Except for one thing..
It had barnacles growing on it. . I thought that was the coolest thing


My wife washed it and killed off the barnacles
hey... it was free, and how much good luck do you need while fishing anyway
