Fishing long sleeve sun shirts

Recommended Posts

Hey guys I'm looking for long sleeve sun shirts with spf protection that are reasonably priced. I don't want to pay 40 bucks for a huk logoed shirt. 

 

What at suggestions do you guys have?

Is the eye patch mandatory if you're fishing on a boat :lol:

I only wear button-down, long-sleeve shirts (no polos).

Most of them are Columbia and Guy Harvey, I like them both.

After reading the comments I think you'd be better off sticking with the $40 shirt :lol: or just use some spray on sunscreen?

Take a look at Sierra Trading Post. They have spf clothing from the big brand names like Columbia at great prices.

I prefer short sleeve shirts and get sun sleeves. Mostly I use Columbia shirts and inexpensive sleeves called Hi Cool that you find on eBay for a couple of dollars. 

 

I don't one like the jersey shirts because the collars don't cover well. Even with buffs, I get neck sun burn.

I can't stand anything on my arms in the summer. I use sunscreen.

I really haven't wore anything but Huk but I am sure others will probably work. I don't mind paying the price because you usually get what you pay for. To me the Huk shirt is really cool to wear. I don't seem to get as hot. I recommend wearing long sleeves but you can do what you want. If you get skin cancer cut off, you can afford a bunch of shirts.

I have been wearing long sleeved white or light colored shirts for years. I have at least a dozen of them that are just for fishing.  Some are heavy and some or very thin or linen, depending how warm it is in Minnesota when I go fishing. When I went out on March 28th, the day out after the official Ice Out on Minnetonka the high was 65 degrees. I pick most of them up at garage sales, thrift stores, Salvation Army or Goodwill, and never spend more than $3 on them. When I get a hook stuck in one, tear on or get one stained, its not painful to throw it away and grab another one.

Cabela's guide series SPF long sleeve shirts are a good value if they have them in stock in color and size you want. Columbia would be very similar at a higher price point. Keep in mind the SPF rating is when the shirt is new and reduces with each washing. Wearing a cotton long sleeve shirt isn't the same as SPF rated shirts.

Bingo.  Sierra Trading Post rocks for finding all sorts of stuff with crazy discounts, not just outdoor gear.

Don't forget a buff!  Especially if you believe that the smell of sunscreen causes fish not to bite! I am not really a believer in that because most plastics are so strongly scented nowadays I feel like the fish wouldn't be able to smell the sunscreen.

The Academy Magellan brand shirts are nice and have a good price.  I also found some Gander Mountain brand ones for around $15 that I like a lot.
