Quality Clothing is the Best Sun Protection for Anglers

by Huk Gear June 26, 2015

Anglers are always looking for ways to catch more fish. On bright, sunny days, however, one of the biggest challenges is avoiding skin damage.

While there are many things that you can do to protect your skin against UV rays, the best protectant is clothing. 

Anglers are always looking for ways to catch more fish. On bright, sunny days, however, one of the biggest challenges is avoiding skin damage.

While there are many things that you can do to protect your skin against UV rays, the best protectant is clothing. You need to use every protective measure possible, but you will find that having the right clothing lets you stay on the water longer, which will only mean more fish.

Better Than Sunscreen

Using sunscreen is an important part of protecting your skin, and you should always have some with you when fishing on a sunny day, but it can quickly wash away, forcing you to apply and reapply a fresh coating. Luckily, fishing apparel doesn’t wash away when you get splashed. In fact, with moisture-wicking technology, Huk shirts force water to bead right off, leaving you dry, comfortable, and protected from the sun. While fishing, it can be easy to forget about applying sunscreen every couple of hours. You won’t have that problem with fishing shirts and other clothing.

Won’t Change Throughout the Day

One of the best ways that anglers avoid the sun is by fishing from the shade whenever possible. If fishing from the shore, you might keep moving until they find a nice shady spot. When fishing on the water, you might position your boat near the bank where the sun is blocked by a steep hill or a tall tree. This creates two problems, however. First of all, the shade will eventually change with the movement of the sun, forcing you to either move again or be exposed to possible sunburn. Second, it dictates that you fish from a certain area. Maybe the best fishing is off a sun-drenched bank nearby; in that case, it helps to have protective clothing.

Fish Anytime You Want

The best times to avoid sunburns are the mornings and the evenings, when the sun is sitting at a lower angle. However, maybe you only have time to go fishing in the middle of the day, when the sun is high and you are more likely to get a sunburn. In this case, you will want to have a cool, comfortable fishing shirt to protect your skin.

Easier to Carry, Store, and Use

Just put it on before you go fishing. That’s it. Unlike sunscreen, you don’t have to worry about having enough on your boat or in your pack. You won’t have to think about it while you fish, you can simply put on your favorite fishing shirt and other skin-protecting apparel and head out for the water. No matter where you go, your fishing shirt will be with you, and when you wear high-quality items from Huk, you’ll barely notice it thanks to cool, light fabrics and comfortable materials.
