Yes I have to thanks Ashley from the great blog: She Loves To Fish for my new fishing cap.
Not long ago, she had a little caption competition on her blog, and the three top captions would win a fishing hat.
Of course I entered, thinking that me being in Australia, and her blog in Canada, my chances were rather slim...
But hey I won a cap!
And the good people from Hobbie Fishing, sent it to me directly here in tropical Australia.
Do you want to see how it fits me?
Here it is:
Hey hey hey!!!
Rather nice no?
In fact I am very happy with it.
And the Hobbie people didn't stop at just sending me a fishing cap, no, they also sent me some little goodies.
Two stickers and two tube of lips balm.
And here is the proof in image:
The full package.
And no, I will not tell you what my caption was, if you really want to know, just go and check out Ashley's blog.
But now you may ask how on earth, a guy fishing for Barramundi and pelagic in the salt waters in the north of Australia came across a blog about Steelhead, pike and mostly fresh water fishing based in Canada? Yes this is about as far as two side of fishing can be.
(But remind me a lot about the fishing I was doing as a kid in Europe, which is why I now follow her blog).
Well it is pretty simple, I found it on the blog roll of another very good fishing blog.
The blog called Xstreem Fishing...
This is a blog about fishing in Fiji, and is a lot closer of the type of fishing that I practice, or at least dream of doing.
I have not been able to fish with this hat yet, as I have had to stay home with a bad cold for a few days now... So I can't show you any photos of the new cap in action...
But hey, it could be worse.
Have a good day,
