The Hemingway Fishing Cap
As a War Correspondent, Ernie was imbedded with the 4th long before the term was even invented and during his tour in France and then Germany, he took as much time out as possible to cast a line in the rivers and streams that skirted the battlefields of Europe.
To remind him of being at home and fly fishing in the rapids of the Big Two Hearted, he had the Papa make him up an ample visored fishing cap, on the pattern of those he wore in Key West and Bimini and later in Ketchum. Using available GI herringbone cloth, he crafted a cap that was destined to become an iconic classic, a 6 paneled crown with a 10” visor, rugged handsome and completely practical.
So if swirling waters and Steelhead are your thing or perhaps just stopping the Krauts from overrunning your CP in the Hurtgen Forest, then this cap is for you.
