Goldfish Fish hooks on caps/hats

Comment: I have seen the fish hook on ball caps for years, ever since I
was a kid. I have heard many different symbolic reasons for it, from
racist and white power, that you like fishing, that it is a trophy for a
fish caught,that you are a redneck, or even a good luck charm. Could you
verify if any one of these is true

My grandfather used to do this, but for him it was just a handy place to keep his favorite lures so they would not get lost in the general jumble in the tacklebox, or spares for worms and grubs.
