The best fishing hats will make your trip more comfortable and enjoyable. Whether you need a warm layer or UV protection, these hats are our favorite picks and one additional fishing accessory that we had to share.
Best Fishing Accessories
Rapala Mesh Knit Women’s Beanie
Rapala offers up a classic cable-knit beanie. An acrylic outer layer, paired with a fleece lining, topped with a pompom will keep your noggin warm in the coldest weather. This is one of the best fishing hats.
Huk A1A Barb Stretchback Hat
This hat is comfortable; the stretch of the material and the moisture-wicking headband combine for an excellent fit. The under visor is dark gray, designed to minimize glare. It comes in 4 color options and 2 sizes. This one is up there with the best fishing hats.
BlackStrap Industries Stripping Guards 3-pack
At $7.50 for a pack of 3, this is a great deal. If you’ve ever spent long days stripping streamers, you already know that stripping guards will make your life easier, will protect your fingers, and also allow you to move your fly better, more consistently, than you can without stripping guards. Not only do stripping guards improve your retrieve and protect your fingers from abrasions and cuts, but they also help keep your fly line clean. Flyfishing columnist and Editor George Krumm loves these.
