Fishouflage, the US company that has become synonomous with fish-themed designs for clothing and other fishing products, has added the Vented Fishing Shirt to its range. The new shirt clearly acknowledges that anglers are becoming increasingly influenced by fashion as well as the normal requirements of durability, functionality and comfort when they choose clothing. Fishouflage has produced a stylish, contemporary shirt with base colours of moss, stone or black combined with Fishouflage swatches depicting either bass or redfish. And practicality has not been forgotten. Among the shirt’s features, the Wisconsin company lists a Velcro rod-holder loop, roll-up sleeves and an oversized cut for easy movement when casting or playing a fish. But it is the material that will give the product most credence among anglers. The lightweight fabric is rip-proof, ensuring that when it gets snagged the damage is limited to the point of impact and won’t run. It also wicks moisture away from the body to help the wearer stay dry and cool. A UPF 40+ rating and mesh venting help prevent the angler from overheating, while a special stain-release treatment means the shirt can more easily be cleaned. With its cool look, Fishouflage envisages that the Vented Fishing Shirt will be worn as much ‘on the town’ as it is on the boat or bank. All sizes from medium to 2XL are catered for.
