Fish without fear from the sun’s nasty UV radiation with this protective gear
It’s no secret the sun’s ultraviolet (UV) radiation poses a significant danger to anglers, even on overcast days—the adverse effects on the skin and eyes accumulate over time, ranging from cosmetic to disabling to deadly. Thankfully, blocking the sun’s harmful rays is simple: diligently apply sunscreen, wear proper sunglasses and keep your skin covered, even when it’s hot out. This new gear for anglers is designed for just that.
