The technical clothing made specifically for fishing has advanced light years ahead of the good ol' days when guys would fish in cutoff jean shorts and heavy-duty tee shirts. AFTCO recently came out with an Inshore Performance Long Sleeve shirt that is an ideal choice for fishing in tropical climates.performance shirt Made out of an ultra-light, stain-resistant, anti-microbial, moisture-wicking performance material, the long sleeve shirt dries quickly and won't get all funky smelling.

Vented mesh panels up the side seams and down the inside seam of the torso keep you cool.

The vents act like your own personal air-conditioner. The collar comes with a high back to protect your neck and the entire shirt is rated at 30-plus UPF for sun protection. The shirts retail for $54.99.

AFTCO (American Fishing Tackle Company) was founded in California by master machinist J.C. Axelson. The company began by producing roller guides for big-game fishing rods. The Shedd family took over the company in the early 1970s and introduced the Unibutt, one of the first aluminum rod butts on the market. The company expanded into clothing in the late 1980s with the AFTCO Bluewater line, which features the art of Guy Harvey. AFTCO now makes a range of products including technical clothing, harnesses, rod belts, luggage and of course the guides and rod butts that made it famous. For more information, visit
