If you are outside a lot in the summer you know how hot that you can become. Extreme heat can be downright dangerous. Traditional cotton tee shirts not only make you hotter, but they also hold in odor.

Fishermen, particularly in the south land must be out in the heat constantly. Intense heat can come life threatening. Being uncomfortably hot can ruin even the most successful of fishing trips.

Traditionally anglers would wear a white cotton tee thinking that the color white would not soak up the sunlight. 

Fortunately, nowadays there are far superior options available to anglers. 

Fishermen need lightweight, loose-fitting clothes. Columbia Sportswear Company makes a complete line of fishing shirts that will fit the needs of any outdoor sportsman.
