years ago I had a chunk of skin, down to the bone, scrapped
off my head. Had a few spots burned/frozen off too. Skin
cancer is no joke, it's serious stuff. If you spend enough
time outdoors you know the effects of too much sun all too
well. A sunburn carries a cost years down the road. People
die from this. A good sunscreen is a necessary part of our
days on the water, protective clothing and hats are also
basic equipment for any angler. Most sunscreens that I've
used were imperfect for the active lifestyle of fishing,
they can all be great for simply lying on a beach. But, when
you combine sweating, water spray...they wash off or get in
your eyes causing temporary blindness. I found something
that works better.
a a bit outside the norm for
our fishing related offerings, but it is something important to anyone
spending a lot of time on the water. Sunscreen is a necessary
thing. I've had my bouts with the vet, cutting-out and
burning-off skin cancers. Spend enough time outdoors and you'll
also have your doc-time. At the ICAST show in July '07 I came
across a new type of sunscreen that's designed for our use. This
is no BS line, repackaging the same old stuff isn't what Sol's
Bluewater product is about. The stuff works very well (SPF36),
it stays on LONGER, it DOESN'T BURN YOUR EYES (even when
directly applied to your eyelid! - I've been doing that at the
shop to demonstrate to clients...) and it's easy to use. In the
past few years I've been pretty religious about wearing
sunscreen. Unfortunately as soon as I begin to sweat, the
sunscreen moves from my forehead into my eyes and they burn,
water, and I'm fish'n by feel instead of sight. This Sol stuff
really works, does not burn your eyes and stay's put! It's the
best product of it's type I've ever used. It's not Coppertone or
Banana Boat, it's a unique product made for what we do.

Next up, a new product we've very happy to share with you.
Sunburns are uncomfortable and a health risk with long term
exposure to the elements. I well know that one, having spent a
good amount of time and a chunk of change having skin cancers
burned, frozen and cut off my carcass. A year or so ago I came
across a new type of fishing shirt, made from very light
weight micro-fibers that offered an sun protection rating of UPF 50+, the best you can get. These shirts are quick drying,
lightweight, breathable, stain resistant and actually wick
moisture/sweat away from your body. You stay cool and dry, and
you're protected from the sun's harmful effects. If you spend
a lot of time on the water, these things are a basic necessity
in my humble opinion. The shirts are made for us by Mojo,
owners of the patented fabric rights. They carry a $35 MSRP,
but given their importance to anglers...and the fact that our
shirts carry our logo so we get a bit of advertising benefit,
we offer them at $29.99. Do yourself, or someone you care
about a favor and grab 'em a couple. They are very much well
worth the money. At present we have these shirts in men's
sizes, we will have women's sizes in the future.
Shucks, what a full service institution
we've become. First health warnings, next up cosmetic and
odious enhancements for the angler! Amazing.
soap is a product I frankly would never use myself,
preferring to smell like bait when I'm fishing and returning
home with the same olfactory obnoxiousness just so the
wifeski has no doubts about what I've been up to. But, there
are many more civilized anglers than I, who either don't
want to smell like bait/fish, or simply don't want to smell
like anything (in the hope that the lack of stench will make
the fish less wary of their lure or other offering.) It is
for these folks that De-Fishing Soap was produced.
(Hope you don't mind the
humor. Reality is that this is the best product of it's type
From the manufacturer:
Lingering odors on hands from
handling fish and bait is a problem. Most anglers don't care
for persistent fishy smells at social functions, the office,
or in the days following fishing trips. Smelly hands rub off
on home and auto upholstery and linger for weeks.
De-Fishing Soap is specially
formulated to eliminate fish and bait odors; just lather up,
scrub (warm water and scrub brush is best), rinse, and
De-Fishing Soap is guaranteed to
remove even the most persistent smells including: anchovy,
bass, catfish, carp, halibut, herring, mackerel, salmon,
shrimp, squid, trout, yellowtail, tuna, and more.
Anglers have tried everything to
remove stubborn fish smells!

doesn't work well)
* Bleach (too caustic and doesn't
* Salt (too harsh and doesn't work
* Ordinary hand soaps (simply do
not work despite repeated scrubbings)
* Stainless steel bars such as used
in restaurant kitchens (expensive, inconvenient, and do not
