So wife and kids asked me what I wanted for Fathers Day and Birthday, of course fishing stuff right?! Always wore swim trunks with pockets for fast drying, but wouldnt it be better to get water repellent instead? Not like we go jump in the water and scare the fish away unless its freaking hot and no bite then all bets are off. Some of us on occasion get sprayed while under way or when the tuna hit the deck go nuts and water and blood go everywhere. Thats where I was thinking water repellent is better? Any brands to look for or stay away from ?

X2 on fishworks. Been buying them since they were Deckies back in the early 90's. Great product.

I should have looked into Aftco but jumped on the banner for 20% Hook and Tackle and got 2 of the hybrid shorts. quick drying, has stretch and also the fishing pliers pocket and cell phone pocket. Will also get Aftco soon as I like they have pliers pockets on both sides as I am a lefty.

I like those Columbia brand shorts. I think they’re called backcast III shorts. I cut out the inside liner. Don’t hang below my knees. Hate shorts that go below my knees. Very fast dry. On sale at Kolls. $ 22.49.

My balls get sweaty enough balls while wearing breathable fast drying shorts.
.......laughing. Brother.... we don't wanna know if you go "commando" on your own boat. Lol. Too many details....
:shake: LOL

P.S. I'm wearing 2O year old AFTCO shorts as we speak. Best shorts I've ever owned. Not stretchy.... but fast dry.
