Wade Deep

The Preston Hat


(Secure FlyPatch Technology)

  • CLAW - 3.5" L x 1.3" W

In the early 1900’s, the legendary Preston Jennings worked to bring science and technology to the forefront of the fly fishing world. His evergreen text “A Book of Trout Flies”, utilized entomology to study how trout saw and interacted with insects. Fly patterns outlined in this book are still utilized today, close to a century later.

This hat is constructed with a durable canvas twill to ensure that it too will last a century. The olive green canvas is embroidered with the Wade Deep logo in a bold orange thread. Like Jennings, we’re putting science at the forefront of our products. Patent pending Secure FlyPatch Technology is ‘lazer-welded’ to the bill of our hats to ensure your flies don't go anywhere. This resilient silicone will hold as many flies as you can stick in it, for as long as you need.

The "size 28" details:

-5 panel construction
-olive-green canvas twill
-double plastic snap rear closure
-flat cotton embroidery on front
-Patented Hybrid-Silicone SFP application

If your hat fails you on or off the water due to construction or material failure - Send it in and we will send you a new hat.  We stand behind what we make.

Preston Hat

Very impressed with the quality. Fits well and stylish. Can't wait to stick some flies in it and take it fishing.

Exceptional product

Really love this hat. The quality is outstanding, it’s not some cheap gimmick hat. The stitching and materials are excellent. First day fishing with it I had a 20 knot wind and the fly patch held flies secure no problem with the added benefit of drying them out very quickly. I always take my hat on and off with my right hand and that is where the fly patch is so I just have to get used to grabbing my hat in a slightly different spot to avoid grabbing the flies, although no danger of hook points because they are secure in the silicone, just mashing some flies. Overall it’s my new favorite hat. Love it

Great hat, surprisingly utilitarian

Love this hat, great fit especially for someone like me that needs a hat without a large crown. This hat can look great with the bill flat or curved heavily. I actually cut out the crown support on the inside of the hat to make the hat less structured and it worked out perfectly.

At first I thought the SFP would hinder the way the hat looked allot but I was totally wrong, it actually looks pretty cool and is actually probably mostly unnoticeable. It also does its job very well and I’ve found myself using allot more than I thought I would.

Good things come to those that Wade Deep

I love the hat! The fit is great and the fly patch is handy and stylish, been catching fish in ever since I got it, only thing is color may be fading faster than anticipated but that could also be from some bug spray, any chance I could get on the free shirt offer, ordered just a week before that was dropped. All good if not, thanks and tight lines!
