Fishing shirt question

9 posts in this topic

I'm trying to find a good light-colored long-sleeved fishing shirt made of quick drying synthetic for use in hot and humid weather. Can you recommend one?

Thanks.

I'd suggest the Columbia Bonehead Shirt. For about $35, you can get a very comfy shirt in either long or short sleeve. The long sleeves roll up and button into a short sleeve. I've used these shirts for several years in hot, hot weather and haven't found a better shirt.

Good Luck!

That's an easy one. Most athletic sportswear is synthetic and designed for wicking and dryness.

I just got a silky smooth pair of shorts and a shirt from K-Mart for 8 bucks each.

I agree with Columbia Bonehead, I have a half-dozen of them and think they're the best.

I have a feeling they are stopping production on the Bonehead shirt. I see Cabelas has them on clearance on their website.

        Yah!  The foldable ones you can.    Or, if you don't get a roof carrier you could just leave one hanging out an open window or the hatch like you're making a lumber run.

      They are BITING - bugs that is - har!   Bass have been very good some days and slooooow on others. Bugs have been awful last few trips. But the dragonflies have hatched out so they will be putting the gobble on the black flies and mosquitoes so things should improve.   Walleyes have finally showed up on the bank. Bass have been there awhile now. Went to Pelican one day and got some largemouths. The special regs there have really helped the bass fishing. Crappie are in spawning colors at several different lakes I have sampled this last week. Everything pretty much shallow but did get some walleyes in 15 FOW,

      Nobody needs that kind of grief.  I hope he's able to overcome that in short order.

      Yes. Casey did sell his new boat and retire from guiding, at least for a while. He has been having serious shoulder and neck problems that have interfered with his guiding abilities. Hope that he gets this problem remedied soon and is able to return to guiding! Cliff
