My old fishing hat has gone missing. I loved that hat. I wore it all the time. It had started as a deep, forest green hat from one of my favorite companies, Patagonia. It fit well. It had stains on its stains and it was faded to a lovely light and dusty green. I even took a picture of that hat.
I have considered calling the police, since I fear foul play may have been involved.
So, I’ve been in the market for a new hat. With the arrival of Buffs, we can now wear caps on the flats/fishing in general without concern about catching cancer along with our fish. My people, we don’t tan.
I have found my new cap and it came in the mail today… the Bonefish & Tarpon Trust cap is now mine… to be seen on a flat nowhere near much of anything in 2010.
BTT now has Pirates of the Flats and after seeing episode one with that fishing fashion icon Tom Brokaw sporting this same cap, I’m glad I got in early before the rush.
