Introducing Different Types of Fishing Hats


As much as funny and relaxing it can be, when it comes to fishing, patience is a virtue. If you want to have a good catch, reserve your day only for exciting adventures on the water. And, while fishing shoes, clothing and gear are essential things for fishermen, one must possess the right fishing hat. The longer you’re out in the weather, the more you’ll need a good fishing hat. Quality fishing hats can insulate your head and protect it from the sun and wind and will protect your eyes from the sun.

Moreover, the right fishing hat will protect your eyes from insects as well. Fishing hats can range from ordinary baseball cap, to traditional brims and straw hats. Regardless the style of fishing hat you choose, make sure it will protect your eyes and head for weather and insects.

Baseball Cap

Baseball Cap

Baseball caps are one of the most popular types of hats, for everyday use and for sport activities. The best thing about baseball caps is the front bill that keeps the sun off your face. Unfortunately, just like many things, these hats have a downside. Because they are usually made of cotton material, they completely absorb sweat and get wet, which is not good for your smarty head. What’s more, the back of your neck remains unprotected, so you can easily get burned. Hence, before making any decision, consider all of your options and let the baseball cap be your last resort.

Straw Hat

Straw Hat

This is the most preferred type of hat among fishermen. With an extremely appealing design, wide brim and breathable straw weave, a straw hat will surely keep your head protected from weather and elements. When it comes to hats, choose straw hat as it is the ideal head-wear for the upcoming long and hot summer days. Straw hats are available in all different styles for all ages making it the perfect hat for everyone and every occasion.

Wide-Brimmed Caped Hat

Without any doubts, this is the ideal choice for fishing activities. The wide brim and neck cape will keep your head and neck protected, while the air vents wick away sweat. These types of hats have also a chin strap, which adjusts and secures the hat to your head. These hats are ideal for whichever is the reason of sun exposure. They are great for tourists, backpackers, safari hunters and anyone who enjoys being outdoor.

Booney Hat

Booney Hat

Booney hats are typical for hunters, but recently they became extremely popular among fishermen. A typical booney hat has a wide brim to protect your head and neck from weather and insects and it comes in light colors to reflect the sun’s heat. When choosing booney hat, choose one made of waterproof and breathable materials.

Whether you choose straw hat, booney, wide brimmed or baseball cap, make sure the material is of superior quality. Always look for, lightweight, breathable and high-quality material fishing hats.
