Biting bugs in the water?Thanks to all who have contributed! This thread helped me outfit for my first Belize trip a few years back. A couple of contributions I will make are:
1. White socks to wear for sun protection instear of going barefoot. Slip them over a 1x2 board and spray the bottom with plasti-dip spray (multiple coats) to prevent slipping.
2. Wear tights under a pair of shorts when a lot of wading is called for. They provide sun protection and protection against biting bugs in the water, but don’t drag when wading like flapping pant legs do. I also put sunscreen on and let it dry before I don them.
Can’t imagine not being fully covered in Hawaii. I’d go broke buying sunscreen and hate it anyway.I know some don't like them and see them as a "fad" but I used to have bad problems with chapped lips so I started wearing a face buff and it has helped tremendously. Also, it may sound silly but once I get to the fishing area, I pull up the buff and go into "ninja mode".. It's game on at that point. I am in "the zone"
