For fash­ion­able fish­er­men

Trout & Salmon (UK) - - TACKLE -

Fish­ing cloth­ing was once uni­ver­sally green or tweedy. But the Scan­di­na­vian and Amer­i­can brands that dom­i­nate mod­ern game-fish­ing seem to care less about cam­ou­flage – al­beit much of their cloth­ing is aimed at boat, sal­mon and salt­wa­ter an­glers, who un­like a stalk­ing trout fisher ar­guably have less need to look like a tree. This smart, high-qual­ity shirt from Columbia can be worn any­where – pub, shops, of­fice – so it may get a lot of wear and is great value. It’s less pricey than a high-end high-street shirt. It dries quickly and will shield you from the sun to UPF 30. De­tails we like are the lift-up sun-pro­tec­tion col­lar, roll-up sleeves with tabs, the sun­glasses cleaning patch on the in­side of the front hem, fly-box-sized chest pock­ets, and large back vents. It’s also rain- and stain-re­sis­tant. Colours: blue or red plaid. Sizes: M, L, XL, XXL.
