Anglers have many choices when it comes to fishing hats, from fabric neck gaiter headwear to the modern fishing truckers hats. The most important thing is to protect your face from the sun. If you spend a lot of time on the water you’re not interested in a suntan, you know you’ll get plenty of exposure throughout the year.
Fishing trucker hats have become popular amongst fly fishing anglers and bass fishing anglers, it’s a sleek and modern new look, that keeps the function of protecting your face. However, it does not provide the full protection and coverage of a wide brim hat. You would need a fishing mask (or fishing buff) to cover the rest of your face and the back of your neck.
