Default Unique caps

Ive seen some great caps in magazines, fishing DVDs which I would love to get.

Problem is in Australia, its hard to find them.

Anyone know of some cool, independant, unique trucker (flyfishing) style caps that you can get online?

Cheers

Paddy

I have somewhat of a collection of caps that came from different independent fly shops that I've visited. You could get them online I suppose too.
And Madison River Fishing Co. sells logo hats. Pretty much any one that you'd want

If you are part of TheClymb, sometimes they will have some nice ones, I have seen cats by Redington and a few other brands on there.

If you are not part of them send me a PM and I can invite you if you want, not sure if they ship to Aussieland though.

Other than a few companies that sell all types and kinds of fishing gear.. i'd say 75% of fly fishing stuff these days are independent businesses, no? Some companies may be bigger now like Orvis, AirFlo, Echo, etc.. But they are still independents...

I think the other guys grasped what I meant, local independent, shop on the corner, small business unique stuff.

And I understand that Orvis, AirFlo etc are still independents, just probably not in the context of my question.

Cheers

My favorite is the cap I got from Jimmies Fly Shop, it just has their logo on the front, they don't sell it online, you have to give them a call. Now that I see Gary's cap it is just as good, definitely going to have to get one!
