I nipped into Loughborough with the good lady and grandson today and while there treated myself to a new fishing hat. Its maiden voyage is tomorrow on the River Soar.
Is there a strong wind forecast Mark? Hold on to your hat.

Very nice hat Mark, hopefully it will help you get that 5lb chub, perhaps a Magic Hat like Dick Walkers hat he rescued from the River Cam

I've had the same hat for many years, mines a bit beaten up and faded now. It's made by Christys.

Great looking hat Mark, very Indiana Jones looking. :Thumb:

I've just got myself a straw hat for summer fishing, keeps the sun off but lets a bit of air blow through..

I had a look around on the net after seeing Marks hat and have found out the design is called a 'Fedora'. I think I now know what I need to look or ask for.

If your Fedora is half as lucky for you Mark as my Tarp Hat has been for me. You will be doing an awful lot of smiling from beneath the brim.

If the hat is made of a "Felt" type material Mark, it is very similar to a top brand that sells very well in Australia. Very stylish!

Good looking hat Mark.We are lucky here.T Snook the hatters are just down the road in Bridport.Your looks very much like their "Ferret Catcher".There are pictures on their website.

I visited the shop last month to buy a new summer hat as my old one is wearing out,it was made of straw.My new one is made of paper would you believe!.Its been just the job this sunny summer.I was starting to feel the sun on my head now the hair is thinning and have been wearing the hat much more.

I have taken note of some of the posts on this forum regarding protection :Thumb: .
