It is very important to use a form of sun protection when out there fishing! The sun has significantly more strength to it than a mere decade ago! Yesterday, I got badly burnt in the most unlikeliest and overlooked of spots, on my knee, lol. It would appear that I don't currently own a pair of jeans that doesn't have a hole in only the left knee, go figure! I am not a big fan of using sunscreen but I always wear pants and a long sleeved shirt. In addition, I use my favorite ball cap and a bandanna style face covering (see attached picture) to cover all but my face. I highly recommend it! It is made from a very thin fabric that doesn't seem to get too hot or obtrusive. I have seen other people that use a wide brimmed cowboy style hat. What other methods or devices have you found successful in combating the sun?
