New Lid, BTT

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.

Oh hat... I miss you.

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.

Cool cap for a good cause

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.

Bonefish and Tarpon Trust + Pirates

Hey look… it’s Aaron Adams, from the Bonefish & Tarpon Trust, talking about the goodness that is Pirates on the Flats.  Seriously… I can’t wait for this show.  High expectations have doomed many a fishing trip, restaurant recommendation and blind date, but I hope this won’t be a case of the let-downs.  This is an interview from Fish Schtick (an audio pod cast that’s new to me).

Here’s an audio podcast from the Fish Schtick folks that also includes Brian Bennett (Moldy Chum contributor and Patagonia Fly Fishing rep).  Bill Klyn is a big Marketing guy at Patagonia, as well as being involved with the Bonefish and Tarpon Trust.  He’s on at about 21:05.  Give it a listen.


This show is now set for 12/27/2009!
