Hey all,

Where do you go when you want to purchase a fishing shirt? I'm talking the button down, lightweight (or heavier for fall/winter), collared shirts. I've only worn a columbia PFG shirt, but I really liked it. Not enough to spend 60+ on one though as I have learned I am REALLY good at ruining things. A buddy of mine has a really sweet patagonia fishing shirt that has a bunch of outlined trout all over it, but isn't too flashy. I forget where he got it, but I know it was a killer deal. Patagonia (or Patagucci as we jokingly call it) makes some really cool stuff...

I saw a Cabelas Guide series (or something like that) on sale this weekend in Hamburg for 31.99 a shirt, but couldn't settle on a size/color combo that I liked. Not many regular sizes left (but tons of 1-5XL). I'm really picky about the way a shirt fits me.

So where do you guys go for shirts like this? Also, if you order them offline, how is the sizing? Like I said, I'm very picky about the way something fits, so I can be hesitant to order clothing offline if I don't trust it.

Thanks
Ty

I have only 2 such "fishing shirts", collared button down thingies with caped back, chest pockets, mesh liner etc. One's a light green short sleeve, one's a light khaki long sleeve. The long sleeve one is nicer, better material. But I would prefer a darker foresty color. This thing is sand colored and meant for fishing the flats or something, not a mountain trout stream. Even the green one is too light.

I'd prefer camo. :)

Got em both for christmas, both Cabela's guide series thingies. Sizing was fine. I wear a lot of t-shirts and golf shirts, wear an XL. XL fit me here too.

Nice. Yeah the shirts I have now are similar. One is a PFG shirt that is light blue, and I wear that one musky fishing. The other one is a cabela's shirt in khaki that I got when I tried out for the US Youth FF team. I like the cabelas one on days where it isn't too hot, but if its real hot out, the PFG is much more breathable.

Also, the cabelas shirt wrinkles like nothing I have ever seen before haha. But who really cares I mean we're walking around in a river for pete's sake.

I like Jdaddys suggestion. I personally in the past buy Orvis Trout Bum shirts.

I like the Columbia shirts the best, but I agree...I won't pay $60+ for a shirt I intend to wear into the woods and heavy brush, get fish slime on, and regularly beat the snot out of.

Sierra Trading Post is a good bet and I've actually found them at Kohls and TJ Maxx in the $20-30 range before. Not being too picky on the color usually helps when bargain shopping for them too.

Patagonia clothing is second to none. Absolutely, no competition. Aesthetically they are tops. Comfort they are tops. Everything. I get all major outdoor companies 65%+ so I realize its easy for me to say "get this, or get that", but I would pay a pretty penney for patagonia stuff. I wouldnt have every single article of clothing that they make(like I do now), I would use my budget to get a few items. Columbia makes some nice stuff. I dont like it as much as patagonia, but its cheaper so you have that. I cant say i wear anything northface related unless its sub 50 degrees. Mountain hardwear has awesome kayak shorts for boating and wet wading. I dont have a ton of experience with Simms, but I like what I have. I find the patagonia clothing to be comfier and less technical than simms. Simms you would look like a goofball wearing to dinner, or another casual situation. I only have one or two orvis things. A pair of pants and a shirt. I cant comment too much on that brand.

I find I like to get many purposes out of one garment. This is why I back "patagucci". Its awesome to be in all day, and it looks great. Lets me stay out on the water for an extra 45 mins, instead of going home to change out of my jorts before I pick my girlfriend up for dinner. Dont hate on something just cause its awesome :) Your buddy knows its awesome. I know its awesome. Buy a shirt and you will love it to death for the next ten years.

Im so cheap I didnt even buy one of these omni-freeze shirts at 60% off. I somehow ended up getting one for free somewhere along the line. A long sleeved light blue shirt. Man, its a nice shirt. If you can get one at a discount, they are excellent. I wore mine yesterday.

Woolrich when they have the big sales at their store location in Woolrich, PA. Since I live 10 minutes from there I can get quality shirts for $15 or so. Got 2 great raincoats for $12 each. They fold up and are very light. I keep an olive colored one in the back of my vest and got a blue one for Penn State games.

Oh and believe it or not TJ Maxx sometimes has "fishing" shirts there...even the Under Armour. Just a matter of finding your size.

I agree that Patagonia makes great stuff. my latest model airgill was $130, but it has the most vent area of any shirt I could find, and the latest version of their cooling fabric stuff. who knows, but I use it often ... if it lasts a few years I am fine with that.

I fully agree with you in the types of fishing that you typically talk about doing. However, if you want to spend 10 hours a day on a drift boat in the blazing heat/sun, cooling through evaporation along with sun protection is incredibly relevant. It can make the trip exponentially more enjoyable.
