All anglers know that your fishing clothing is probably the biggest factor between having an enjoyable day or a disaster whilst on the water.
Layering and dressing to the conditions is only the first part in keeping warm and comfortable, retaining the heat is a different matter. Heat can be lost easily from open chest zips or loose fit collars. Your face is the most sensitive part of your body whilst out on the water, attracting harmful UV rays which are in effect doubled from most UV rays being deflected from the surface mass.
Buffs have been popular among outdoor enthusiasts for years and this simple yet clever tubular designed garment is now targeting fishermen with their properties blocking 95% of harmful UV rays. This seamless piece of clothing is designed to be worn a variety of ways and offers protection from UV radiation as well as a number of other uses.
Fishtec have now taken stock of both Original and Anglers BUFFs. Available in some great textured patterns and some favourite fish scale pattern, the Original and Anglers series really stand out from the crowd.
