I wear those hats having flaps on the side and back for sun protection.

It does help keep the hook from the covered parts of my head when the fly is moving from back to front.

It doesn't offer much protection when the fly is going the other way. I still got pinned on my left ear when the wind decided to pick up and blow the clouser slightly to the left on the way back on the back cast. The fly got between my face and the left flap of the hat. Luckily I was fishing semi-barbless. I had the barb pinched down before fishing that morning.

Yes, I always wear glasses when fly fishing.

Fish safely!
