In response to a recent post, let me offer some advice.

I started covering up completely.

The best way to protect yourself from the sun.

agreed , most under appreciated topic for bass fisherman . I have also had Mohs , chemical treatments , UV light treatments , nitrogen freezes etc.....
Sunscreens can work OK , but wearing the new UV clothes are the most effective , but take some serious getting used to .
I wear the Simms UV buff , the new one is larger and not as restrictive , long sleeves are good and UV gloves .

I just can't fish with all that stuff on. For me it's a long sleeve shirt, pants and a hat. I try to go in during the middle of the day, sit under a bridge or put the bimini top up.

I wear the long sleeve shirts. Need to be better about getting my whole face protected, but a face mask isn't comfortable.

Anyway, I don't understand this "UV protective" clothing. Seems like a marketing gimmick to me. Isn't all clothing UV protectant? When's the last time you got a sunburn under your t-shirt?

Screen SPF 50. Two hours in the morning or evening and out until it cools down.

I often wonder the same thing about clothing unless it was some mesh properties to it

I have never been burned on parts that were clothed either. Maybe it has something to do with the very thin microfiber fabrics. Anyway I fully cover with clothing and sunscreen my legs. Just can't wear pants fishing. Buff's took some getting used to but now I don't even notice.

Hey guys interesting topic. I just went archery deer hunting in the Pacific range mountains of California last week with temps rising higher than 110 in some spots. Down in the lower bowls that were covered in Golden colored wild oats that had almost a reflective sheen to them. I had on a 100% merino wool long sleeve on, it is a very thin light breathable shirt made specifically for warmer temps. Unfortunately on the last day during the descent, i got burnt really bad on my shoulders. Thankfully only a couple blisters. First time ive ever heard of it happening. But I can with MAJOR confidence say you can burn through clothing. splat

It took me a little while to get used to the idea. But when you fish all day and come in with no sun burn, you'll wonder how you did it before. I prefer short sleeve shirts and sun sleeves.

I don't like jerseys because they don't have collars.

The sun doesn't only shine in the summer...
The chance for skin cancer is NOT just a summer thing. We fool ourselves into thinking we are only vulnerable in the summer.
I wear long sleeves and sunblock all year long. (just can't stand the buff)

I assure you it's a marketing gimmick. It's the dumbest thing I have ever heard. Where do people get skin cancer removed from? Their nose, face, ears, forearms, etc. it's been this way forever. My dad used to go once a year and get stuff cut off. No once was it above the elbow. This was way before any talk of SPF clothing was conjured up in some marketing meeting. I'm not saying getting A skin cancer on your Lilly white butt cheek should not be a concern but I suspect being eaten by a shark or struck by lightening while sitting on your couch should be higher on the list.
