Extra storage pockets, breathable fabric and UPF sun protection are three friendly features in a good women’s fishing shirt. Women’s fishing shirts need just as much UPF sun protection as women’s guide shirts. Manufacturers of women’s fishing and guide shirts developed fantastic performance fabrics in recent years that offer insect repellent and UPF sun protection. Women’s insect-repellent shirts are a recent technology that is odorless, biodegradable in most cases and are good for 25 washings. Women’s insect-repellent shirts are an asset to have on fishing or guiding trips into thick brush. Some women’s fishing and guide shirts offer ventilation flaps in the back to keep you cool. Columbia Sportswear is a great brand to shop for your fishing wardrobe.
