I have looked everywhere – in my car, in all my fishing bags, behind my fishing books, under my bed etc. - some of you even got a text message - That is right – it is the news of the year week moment – I have lost my lucky green fishing hat.
You see this is no mere piece of cloth (with a plastic bit as a visor) bought in an outdoor shop several years ago – this is a Lucky Hat – when I go fishing without it I feel decidedly unlucky – for a start I trip over shit due to being dazzled by the sun. Due to it being green I also feel as if I blend into nature – unlike my stand in Orvis hat which is cream and feels like I am wearing a lighthouse on my head. I have worn this hat for pretty much all my fishing – it had a nice sweatband that stopped sweat dripping down on to my nose…
…and it smelled just nice too – it was is comfy like no other and has been through thick and thin with me – it has even been up mountains with me..
I remember thinking it was in my car however a thorough hunt has turned up doodle squat.
You may have noticed I love my hat – sure I could break a new one in with time (not the cream orvis one) however I would need to wear it like …non stop…to get it anywhere near the level of luckiness my original green hat gave me.
I think I am obsessed - do you guys have a lucky hat?
