Flat Bill or Bend? What is your style?
February 19, 2016
While this river is running high I decided we had better settle this and let the sales do the talking. We have one "flat bill" style hat and one traditional trucker type hat. Whoever orders more wins the debate. What a great sales approach. We'll make dozens upon dozens of dollars!
There is a lot of controversy over the "flat bill" hat and its entrance into the fly fishing arena. The history of the flat bill started with skateboarding then moved through motocross, bmx, snowboarding, baseball, most other sports and has eventually landed in fly fishing. Maybe all the same dudes that use to skateboard are now fly fishing since you've gotten old haha.
What's the point of the flat bill? Add comments below please just keep it fairly clean. Based on my extensive research on the history of a flat bill hat here are the key points that have come up.
- Flat bill hats look new and sharp longer. Even when they are sweat stained and gross from rowing, from a distance it looks like you have a new hat.
- That is about all I have. Please enlighten me in the comments as to why you like or dislike the flat bill.
- Order a new hat. That one you have been wearing is an embarrassment. In fact, get one for looking good and taking the lady friend out to a nice dinner. One for fishing. Get the flat bill for looking sharp, get the traditional trucker for gettin' trout.
New Hats and Colors
$18.95 - Traditional Red's Trucker Hats with a slightly bent bill. You could flatten it more haha. That would be the opposite of what the old guys do. They love it bent.
$19.95 - Flat Bill "509 Trout" Hats. This hat is super cool. Apparently you have to pay an extra $1 to get a flatter bill.
