We don’t often promote products here on the Fly Fishing blog, but this one has been creating enough online buzz that we wanted to get out in front it. Your favorite retro fishing hat is back, and it will soon be available dressed in camo. We often seed new products to friends in the industry to see how folks will react, and these hats have been causing some commotion. After Timbre Pringle and Darcy Toner of Faceless Fly Fishing snagged a hat at this year’s ICAST show, they didn’t wait long to test it out on the water. Within a week of the show, Darcy was sporting the lid—and a beautiful cutthroat—up in British Columbia.
Our go-to hat tester, Shawn “Diddy” Combs, also put this bad boy to use while fishing for carp on Michigan’s Beaver Island.
The hats are not quite available yet (we’re anticipating an August 14 shipping date), but you can preorder yours by clicking here.
