bonefish41 will become famous soon enough
Default Flats Tube Face Mask

I first saw it used about three or four years ago in the Keys. It's a cloth tube not a balaclava...which when deployed covers your entire neck and face leaving only your sun glasses. It also keeps a baseball type hat on your head when moving at 40 kts. over the flats. At my age, 65, I like it better than sun screen when on a casting platform for 6-7 hours and those freeze jobs at the requires getting used to but it works; however, when wearing it around navy/coast guard warfs/piers while fishing be prepared for the OD to look you and your boat over as one has a distinctive appearance of the middle east ...happened to me in key west

Has anyone else tried them?
