I did 10 hour floats in canoes (last Saturday, most recently. HOT!)...I was indeed ready to rip my shirt off by the end, but ain't nobody wanna see that! I guess some of my soccer jersies would allow for the kind of evaporation you are talking about, but they aren't any cheaper than the shirts mentioned here.

Uggg. Why bring soccer into this? LOL.

In all seriousness, are those long sleeved? The technical shirts I prefer are excellent at evaporation/cooling, have a sun block rating of at least 50, are long sleeved and have "thumb holes" at the bottom on the sleeve so you can protect the tops of your hands which seem very susceptible to burn.

Mossy Creek Outfitters had a pile of these at the Lancaster Fly Show for $20 a copy.

I got some deals on Simms technical shirts however I prefer the Patagonia.

I picked up a couple of these and have been very happy with them as well:

They were one sale in Hamburg for $30. They don't cool as well as the Patagonia shirts but the hood is nice for avoiding buff dorkiness.

Some are long sleeve, but don't have the thumb holes that you speak of.

I find that the place I burn the most is on the top of my forearms, from my elbow down to my wrists. I see those guys out on the salt flats wearing those special fishing shirts and it doesn't seem like a bad idea. I'm half Irish. I burn like a banshee.

For the record, I wasn't knocking fishing shirts, I was just being a d-bag

kbob - My Columbia shirts have had held up well too. The oldest one is now probably 3 or 4 years old and has a small tear in one of the sleeves from catching it on a thorn branch...still have the corresponding scar on my bicep as well. The others still look new.

I just know the outgoing lines can be had for 50% or less than the brand new stuff from outlets like STP, so I buy there.

Thumb holes are as simple as a pair of scissors, lol.

I know you weren't knocking fishing shirts. They are completely unnecessary most of the time and are a choice. On average I am wearing a t-shirt when fishing. But trust me, when you take your trip to Maine you will want every inch of you body covered and it needs to be light weight breathable material. Biting bugs and humidity. Uggg.

Having said all of that, I think the OP was talking about those traditional flats fishing shirt that have the ventilation and all the pockets and stuff. I have a couple of those and rarely use them for fishing. Even with the ventilation, I find the cotton to be way to heavy and breath ability is bad. Only advantage to them is cooler weather and am traveling light. There I like all the pockets for boxes and what not.

Gander Mountain had the Columbia PFG's on sale for around $25.00 or $30.00. My buddy picked up two of them. That was this past weekend. 7-21-2013

yeah the Columbia vented shirts that I bought had much more vent space than orvis or Filson.

if you wear the columbia ones with the most vents casually they look like some sort of weird fishing version of a Batman outfit I don't care I hate heat :)

the shirt and the Columbia neck gaiter dampened with cool stream water help a lot. Plus breathable waders..

A camo T shirt in the summer. Otherwise a seriously faded and worn flannel shirt that I've worn fishing for @15 years. My wife knows I want to be buried in it - not joking.

Is there anything more comfortable than an almost worn out flannel shirt?

They can great for being outdoors....but why do over half of the guys at fly fishing shows insist on wearing them?

Checkout the 50% rack at Gander mountain.

They wanna look the part, BFP.

I finally gave up wearing cotton tees for warm weather fishing. Nothing is better in hot weather than a quick dry/vented fishing shirt. I like the long sleeves that can be rolled up in the heat or down in chilly weather or for sun protection.

Bingo. I also like the chest pockets for tippet.
