In Part 1, I mentioned the importance of drinking water and staying hydrated. Part 2 is all about clothing. Living in Florida, I am used to the sun when I'm fishing. They don't call it the Sunshine State for nothing. Even with the extreme heat and constant sunshine, I actually wear much more clothing and accessories than I have anywhere else I have lived.
I have become a huge fan of the Buff Headwear and now am starting to wear the gloves as well (look for a review soon). I sometimes get strange looks and even called a ninja when I wear it, but I am convinced it helps and I also feel much better after a long day on the water. The sensitive areas on your neck and ears are the worst for getting skin cancer and I am glad I am protected. I also wear a huge hat to keep the sun off my face. I used to come into work every Monday with the infamous "racoon eye" tan, but it doesn't happen as much anymore.
The shirts have come a long way over the past few years. I always try to wear a long sleeve, even in the dead of summer. I have really started to enjoy the shirts like the Breathe Like a Fish shirt that is breathable but also protects.
What's your sun clothing arsenal? Are you a shorts, t-shirt and visor person? or do you look like me when I'm out there?
