Let’s face it, some anglers love a good pair of jeans and a solid cotton tee shirt, but the serious fisherman (ie: fishing guides, tournament anglers and the hardcore enthusiast), need comfortable, durable gear that can withstand mother nature and keep them out on the water in some of the toughest climates. The reality is guides and tournament anglers fish somewhere between 80-200 days a year.
That is more than your average weekend angler and the fishing clothing that they choose to wear can really impact performance, endurance and mental state of mind.
Let’s say for example you are fishing down in Texas. It’s a typical Texas summer day with 95˚ temps, 25 mph wind gusts and an otherwise beautiful bite. How long do you think you could stay out casting and catching until you were considered “Worn Out”? Better yet, let’s say the bite is soo good, you decided to fish a couple more hours and get home burnt to a crisp. How would you feel about fishing the next day?
This is why fishing apparel, specifically performance gear is super important. If you were covered from head to toe in fishing clothing that is breathable, cooling and comfortable you could stay out from dusk to dawn and not have to worry about sun screen or wind burn.
Fishing guides and tournament anglers have to consider that something as simple as the fabric content could ruin their entire week. Heat exhaustion, sun burn and dehydration definitely has it’s role in sport fishing like any other sport. The more you can eliminate those issues the better chance you have to land a record.

A Quick Question
Are you going to trust gear from a company who field tests and develops product where the average temperature during the year is 75˚? How about a company born from the Texas heat?
