    I’m not a bass fisherman, but I do fish and I’m very successful. Watching a tournament on fx2. Why are these guys horsing these fishing and catapulting them into the boat. Seen more lost pulled hooks, than landed.

    That’s the IN thing, like all of them wearing flat bill hats, long sleeve dry fit shirts......Its as much about style and attitudes as catching fish, or at least that’s what’s put on TV. Gave it up bout the same time I did NASCAR.

    At least flat brim hats and long sleeve shirts have a useful purpose, blocking sun.

    I would scratch my jock with a cheese grater before wearing a flat brim hat. They look silly IMO.

    I don’t even know what a flat brim hat is

    I don’t understand why they have to be so aggressive with the fish, if it’s all about conservation and releasing the fish at the end.

    they set the hook like they’re swinging for the fences.jerk the fish in the boat, bouncing of everything, let flop all over the carpeted floor, can’t be good for the fish’s protective coating, then gently place it in the live well

    They block way more sun than a regular hat and stay out of your peripheral vision. I’ve always worn one for baseball and shooting for those two reasons. It’s a practicality aspect, not a look thing.

    Speaking for yourself. It’s obviously a trending attire as with many things and I guess that’s just what helps it sell.

    Absolutely and now they’re wearing ones that resemble a sports jersey with their name in huge letters on the back.

    That's why I prefer the Major League Fishing format.
