  1. Question Caribean Saltwater fishing question

    I noticed in several magazines, articles, and websites about caribean fishing that the anglers in the pictures usually have bandanas covering their mouths and noses. Is there a reason for this?

    Protection from the sun. Some guides and anglers also wear sun gloves.

    Hi ckalanik,

    Trucha is right on target. Even if you wear a hat with a cape and a good bill it may not be enough. You still have the sun reflecting off of the water and it will strike you on your face. Sun block is a big help but the buff gives the best protection when used with sun block. I wear sun gloves most of the year here in Florida.

    Here's another option Mad River Outfitters - Sun Mask Scott Fly Rods has another version on their site in the accessories section that won't have you looking quite so much like a bank robber- home

    I'd rather hunt fish than bait deer any day.

    ckalanik,

    it is called a balaclava, it is made from sun protective fabric. you can find them from several suppliers, Orvis, Bass pro shops, cabelas... etc. if you combine this with a fishing hat like Frank referred and combine it with a good sun block, you can fish all day.

    Skin Cancer Sucks!!! (moderators- please remove if inappropriate)

    when I was a wee-er lad than I am now (turning 30 at the end of the month),
    I thought nothing of it to go fishing, surfing, swimming all day without protection, now...... you better believe that i am all to serious about covering up and lubing up. I already have had a few "spots" removed.

    dont want no-mo!
