Harpo “Les Chapeaux de Marie” – Marché Couvert




Forgotten and neglected in favor of new objects such as cheaper and easier-to-maintain caps, the hat is still quite desired by fly fishermen without crossing the cap to get one.

It is often difficult to find a store offering a wide choice and offering good advice. Because a hat is not chosen lightly, it follows you for many years and quickly becomes essential and inseparable from the fisherman.

The benchmark for this is STETSON. While its cost is quite high, count around 120 euros for pure wool but the investment is worth the effort.

In summer it will protect you remarkably from the sun and avoid any reflection in the glasses to make you benefit even more from their polarizing power. In addition, on rainy days, it will keep you dry and cool you. It therefore brings together all the qualities required for the fly fisherman.

However, it is not always easy to find a store with a wide choice and offering good advice. However, there are many in France. Recently at the bend of a visit to Etretat (76), we ran into the shop “Les Chapeaux de Marie”.

It is not very big but the choice is immense. It is almost impossible that you do not find the model that suits you and will be guided step by step to select your hat.

So if you too go through Etretat, go take a look, it is very likely that you will come back with a very nice hat that you will not leave during your fishing trips.
