Old Habits Die Hard

There is a sect of fly fishers who love them some trucker hats. Emblazoned with fly fishing company's and fly shop's logos, you'll see mesh backed trucker hats on a seemingly growing population of fisher people. I am not a fan. In a moment of weakness, I tried to fit in a few years back and wore a navy and white trucker hat. I didn't like it. I hate the harshly curved bill, breathability, and lack of Phillies logo offered by the trucker hat. Sure, it works for other people. I am not one to judge other people's fly fishing fashion choices.

But, I have a fitted baseball hat problem. I can't get away from them. I love baseball. I love the Philadelphia Phillies. I love fitted Phillies hats. Most of all, I love lamp. For whatever life occasion presents itself, I wear fitted Philadelphia Phillies hats. While I was back home for a friend's wedding, I came across these pictures from my "uwe-ff." Old habits die hard.

i too have a fitted hat problem (more collection now than wearing), but i ain't scared to rock the trucker hat either, and do quite often.

I'm not a big sports fan, but I have this growing collection of fishing related logo hats I'm pleased with. My current favorite is a black number with a simple fish logo from Graywolf. Classic.

I can support this. I constantly get in trouble for wearing my Phils cap to work.....and I work in a shop in Philly! The only bummer is that if a fitted gets rained on just once, its already lost its structure. I will always fish in my fitteds though...Glad I'm not the only one.

Erghhhh....that's "good LOOKS'. ....the luck, or lack of it, that you get from your dad, except, of course, when it comes to him meeting your mom.
