A Functioning Fishaholic Fishing Ninja

What the heck is a Hoo-rag?

Their slogan, “The better bandanna”  sums it up nicely.  The Hoo-rag is a stretchable, breathable, fabric tube that can be worn in a multitude of ways to suit your situation.  Check out the video below to see some of the many ways it can be worn.

So why get so excited over a fabric sock?

It was a warm Summer night, a few of the Functioning Fishaholics were fishing the Perkiomen Creek at dusk, and the bugs were getting thick.

Hoo-rag was kind enough to send a few different samples for us to review and as an experiment, I silently kept a few Hoo-rags in my vest.  Unbeknownst to the rest of the crew, these items would soon become some of their favorite gear.

“What the heck is that?”

Looking over at me in my “fishing ninja” garb, Kris questioned me about the fabric on my face.  “It’s a Hoo-rag”, I muttered.  “Wanna try one?”

Kris had no hat and the bugs were starting to annoy him.  “Sure”, he replied.

A few minutes later Kris was a believer.  “This thing is awesome”, The bugs were out of his nose and ears and Kris was starting to enjoy the trip again.

Curious, Jeff walked over to Kris  and tried it on for himself.  Within a few minutes we had another believer  (In fact I think I still owe Jeff the 3rd Hoo-rag I still have on my desk).

The Hoorag fishing bandanna comes in many designs

The whole group loved Hoo-rag

Prior to this trip I happily used my Hoo-rag to keep away, bugs, wind, and sun.  It was great to see the guys felt the same way about this product.  For such a small and inexpensive item it received LOTS of praise.

Does the Hoo-rag fit a big head?

As far as sizing goes, if you can’t tell from the pic above I have a HUGE head…  We are talking massive, planetoid scale here.  I often have a lot of trouble finding a hat that will fit.  The Hoo-rag fit my head and face and never seemed too tight.

Is it breathable?

In full sun on a really hot day I did feel a little warmer wearing the Hoo-rag however, it wasn’t uncomfortable.  I’d imagine that on a cold day that little bit of extra heat could come in handy.  If you are looking to cool down I’d suggest soaking the Hoo-rag in water first.

The Hoorag even comes in a Tarpon design


Does it protect you from the sun?

Ever see a pro bass fishermen up close?  Notice how most of their faces resemble old shoe leather?  Be safe and cover your face!  A Hoo-rag, sunglasses, and hat can give you almost 100% coverage from the sun.  This summer I’m making it a point to don the Hoo-rag on sunny days.

Overall the Funcfish crew was very impressed with the Hoo-rag.  In fact, I can’t think of a fishing product that has gotten more praise from our group.

At $15 this product is a great way to protect your face.  There are a ton of different designs and many are geared towards fishermen!

    I’m probably going to get one of those this year. I want to carp fish alot and the reflection off the water works your face.

      $15 is a lot cheaper than skin cancer for sure!

  • Yeah, I need to get something like this for this year as well. If you like it, I may go Hoo-Rag over that other comparable product.
