Anglers all over the country are discovering the importance of fishing masks.
These vital pieces of apparel are perfect for anyone who plans to spend hours on the water, and they should be part of your everyday fishing gear.
Every experienced angler understands the importance of sun protection. No matter where you live and fish, the sun can beat down on your skin and cause a wide range of problems. At best, you get a painful sunburn. At worst, you increase the risk of skin cancer, which is the most common type of cancer in the U.S. The harmful effects of sun overexposure also include premature wrinkling, discoloration, and sagging skin.
Sunscreen, long-sleeve shirts, and wide-brimmed hats are all common tools in the fight against sun exposure, but a fishing mask should also be in your arsenal as well. Fishing masks protect your neck and face from the sun, giving you nearly 100% coverage from UVA and UVB rays.
But it turns out, not all fishing facemasks are equal.
Anglers know that comfort is essential when it comes to a fishing mask. They should not only wrap your face and neck in sun protection, they should give you superior comfort and breathability. Huk fishing masks use superior materials and expert designs to meet this goal.
It all starts with moisture-wicking fabrics that pull sweat away from the body to the outside of the material, where it can evaporate. The masks use breathable fabrics to move air down the neck and into your shirt, helping you stay cool. The collar fits perfectly, giving you a comfortable fit that doesn’t disrupt flexibility.

You often hear the phrase there is nothing more important than a friend but like many other clichés of life especially at today’s pace, many of these old time sayings are said without really understanding their meaning. As I look back at the past five decades of my life spent in blue water and at my hunting career which has taken me all over the globe, I lift both hands in front of me and start counting off the friends which I could call at any time day or night for help; those who would put their life in jeopardy to save mine, or for that matter those who I can count on in the absolute worst of situations.
America (and much of the globe) seems to have an obsession with billfish, but few species are as popular as the Atlantic blue marlin. Not that there is anything wrong with black marlin, sailfish, swordfish, or striped marlin; it’s just that the blue marlin, which is the largest of the billfish group, has captured the hearts and passions of anglers for centuries.
If you want to join the ranks of anglers who’ve pulled up a blue marlin, you have your work cut out for you. But with the right techniques, you can add this world-class trophy to your list.
