A different hat for every trip

Post by Rutland Rod »

Flicking through a local auction catalogue I came upon this splendid selection of hats, not our usual cap etc but would brighten up a session !Image They look to me like French ? certainly not English ?

The Straw ditty looks very much like a Green Templeton College Oxford boating or punt hat. Perfect for a calm Summers day fishing a river or even an estate lake.

I suffer from a surfeit of hats “ Thora” aka SWMBO , just shakes her head in disbelief, there must be 20 plus of various styles , plus around the same number of wooly hats for winter . Everything from my traditional Pith helmet ( which I may take to the Wye in a few weeks) to an Acubra, a few leather cowboy style hats , my Army and other uniform hats, trilby, flat caps straw,baseball caps ( I know , shouldnt be mentioned ) etc etc .

I suppose everybody has some form of weakness , one of mine is hats, a lot of which never get worn. :whistle:

I've also caught the hat bug in recent years which boils down to three categories.
Sun hats
Cold weather hats
And wet weather hats
I have at least two of each.
I'm not really a fan of hood's or brollies these days.

Definitely one to wear indoors while tying the old flies, or reading Crabtree, with your feet up on a leather pouffe, in front of the open hearth fire with some apple or cherry wood logs crackling in the grate.

I had a count up in the Landrover “hat store“.... nine different hats... from corduroy trilby, flat caps, floppy bush hats, Tilley and woolly ones.....amazing what you can find! I do like a hat!
