On days while fishing when I would see someone wearing those silly looking hats that protect you from the sun, I would think do they even know how ridiculous they look. I would never wear one. I might look like one of the characters on " Grumpy Old Men " . But after fishing 3 straight days last month I had severe sun poisoning on the back of my neck along with 3 lumps that I knew had to be tumors. So after a trip to the doctors, everything is ok and I am going to live. Yes I was scared , scared enough to wear one of those silly looking hats. I hope this blog is enough to help someone understand the dangers of the sun, and won't wait until they get a scare or even worse. Now when I see one of those guys I will not laugh, I will be thankful they make those silly looking hats.
