Default Re: Fishing shirts ?

I'd say you generally have two options. One, and my favorite, is to go to the nearest goodwill store and shop there. A mother whose son has just moved away from college is always overjoyed to get rid of all the athletic gear he has amassed over the years. Those long-sleeve highschool warm up shirts are the same material as most high-priced "performance fishing" shirts are. And hopefully the kid didn't play too much and the shirt is in decent shape. That way, you get to rep your local highschool while holding a permit/bonefish/tarpon/browntrout of a lifetime.

I'd also throw out a company called "Freefly". They have bamboo based long sleeve and short sleeve shirts, and buffs too. Comfortable as all get out, and part of your purchase price goes to helping a non-profit water organization in Africa. We all fish in it here in the U.S., waaaay lucky when you realize how far people walk just to get some to drink.
