Fishing Hats and Headwear
The range of fishing hats and fishing headwear available to buy is wide and varied. It is worth looking at the different types and styles before making your purchase. The more popular fishing headwear brands each have something to offer the keen fisherman.
The beanie fishing hat
The beanie fishing hat is a practical and warm choice as it can be pulled down over the ears and the front of your head, making this an excellent choice for bad weather. Beanies are usually knitted and not usually waterproof.
The bucket fishing hat
The bucket hat is an instantly recognisable shape for a fishing hat. Some hats can even be folded into a pouch with a carrying strap and also allow your head to breathe as well as being completely waterproof.
The baseball fishing hat
The baseball style fishing hat is useful for sun protection as well as warmth. The brim keeps the sun out of your eyes on hot days.
Wide brim fishing hats
The wide brim fishing hat, like the baseball cap, is favoured for sun protection. The brim can protect the eyes and also the back of the neck from getting sunburnt in hot conditions. Some wide brimmed fishing hats are easy to fold and pack away, but are also water resistant and adjustable. Other wide brim fishing hats are more rigid, such as the brushed cotton versions, which are not usually waterproof , but offer good sun protection.
Balaclava fishing hats
Balaclava fishing hats are usually favoured in colder weather and in winter. Offering full head coverage, they are a warmer option for all types of fishing . Some brands even offer unusual designs such as skulls and teeth. For those cold conditions some of these hats can also have a lined and extra insulated balaclava.
