Dear TT,
yes it is the same type of hat that RW is wearing, the same type that appears in a few other photos including his capture of a 34lb Redmire carp.
It seems that at some point circa 1970 RW's taste in hats changed and he started wearing more sophisticated headwear!
If a museum for angling was ever established I would be happy to donate this piece of angling history to it.
Very interesting Jardine and what a generous thought Sir!
Very generous thought indeed. :Thumb: :Hat: Nothing to do with your thread but I donate items of local interest to my local museums, It is on view to many who appreciate it that way. :Thumb:

Hi Mem, Chris Ball and Len Arbery are creating an Angling museum/exhibition at the Carp Society's lodge at Horseshoe Lake, it is of course carp orientated. They already have quite a few interesting bits, rods, landing nets, photos, reels, bite indicators etc. I'm sure if you talk to Chris he would be interested.

What a remarkable possession and a generous gift!
Before you give it to the museum I think you should take it fishing for one last time...

Hi John, that's an interesting thought and I saw something on this subject on Lens Facebook page.

Good idea about the fishing trip Snape, I shall plan a special event for it in October.
And Kevin, given the bizarre weather that we are experiencing worldwide (torrential rain here in Northern Thailand) I will be careful that it doesn't get blown away. :Chuckle: :Chuckle:

The fishing hat event will take place in your neck of the woods.
If you want to come fishing here you're more than welcome..

As long as there's fishing to be done I'm happy, Mem. :)
