Favorite Fishing Hat

I had some down time early Sunday evening and with about 2 hours left of daylight, I hopped in my truck to go wet a line.  After a few dinks, I got that bite.  I switched over from a Texas rig watermelon red Yum Dinger over to a drop shot and luckily, it paid off.  I didn’t have a scale but I’d guess somewhere in the 3 lb range.

Earlier that afternoon, my dog chewed up the brim of my favorite fishing hat.  I bought this hat in Gainesville, Florida in my college years.  I don’t recall exactly what year but if I had to guess, I’d say between 1997-1999.  I’m not superstitious at all, but I never leave home without this hat.  It’s worn, smelly and fits my head like a glove.  It’s uglier now, but it definitely adds character if you ask me.

Who else has a lucky fishing hat?
