Looking good on the boat or on the dock has never been easier. Moisture-wicking technology means fishing shirts and shorts dry quicker than ever before, while high-tech fabrics provide great looks with more comfort and fewer worries about wrinkles. Welcome to summer 2017.
In this year’s lineup are performance fishing shirts from a variety of manufacturers that offer outstanding sun protection plus stain resistance and moisture-wicking properties. Combine them with a hat and sun mask and your dermatologist will thank you.
Boardshorts and fishing shorts are also a popular item for summer, with all-day comfort and pockets in all the right places for necessities like pliers and release knives. And no day on the water would be complete without a great pair of polarized sunglasses to help you spot a billfish in the spread.
Once the sun goes down, it’s time to dress up a bit with a nice button-down shirt and maybe a snazzy watch and eyeglasses. The ladies can check out the leggings, yoga pants and more. With great new looks like these, we wish summer would last all year long.
