Guys,

Was up there yesterday afternoon and noticed that the shirts were 100% cotton, not supplex or other microfiber material. The cotton material does not dry as quickly, and I believe that I have read that it does let more UV rays in than does a microfiber shirt. Nice looking shirts, but on a humid day, or after a rain shower, I would rather have a shirt not made out of cotton. Domenic - did you almost by the 'Quest" 8wt, but decline when they couldn't find the tube?

Pete

Cotton makes for great casual work shirts but not the flats IMHO. Long sleeves in a good microfiber shirt saves on the sunburn bigtime too.

Another place to find a great deal is Maynard Outdoors, they usually have around 20% lower price than other stores and carry one of my favorites, the Columbia SPF flats shirt.

Once in a while they discount the Ex Officio at EMS.

labrax, thanks for the mention of the Quest 8wt. I work right up the road and I just swung by the store and picked it up. The young lady in the store couldn't find the matching case, but I talked her into giving me one from another rod.

I cast one last weekend at bean's and very nearly bought it right then. Now I'm glad I didn't, saved myself $30.

We were at the Concord N.H. store yesterday and decided to purchase two of the shirts you mentioned. Might not fill the bill for a flats trip, but at $20 each they came in handy fishing for small mouth.

Thank you Bob! I just purchased 2 Columbia SPF quick-dry long sleeve shirts at an incredible price of 21.95 each!

Reno -

Maynard Outdoors is in downtown Maynard next to the CVS across the street from the Fleet bank. If you are passing thru town coming from route 2 on 27, take that right just after the Cumberland Farms (instead of striaght past the police station). I don't know the street, but I drive through Maynard on my commute fairly often. Once you go through the first set of lights it's on the right. No flyfishing stuff, but lots of good deals on clothing and footwear, camp gear, etc.

Honestly, Campmor blows their prices out of the water but the availability on campmor is pretty slim. For instance the shirts I bought from Campmor only came in white in my size. I wanted light blue (see joke post) but they only had limited choices in my size.

PS: I am moving this thread to the gear board for future reference.

Re the LLBean shirts, I suspect they're the "classic" bean fishing shirts. If so, FWIW, I picked up 2 last month & have found them to be great freshwater shirts & for good for general kicking around. Provide a bit of bug protection, tabs on sleeves keep them rolled up, comfortable, etc.

Have worn them on a few cool mornings in the salt. They're good, but definitely not on par with the supplex.

Another discount site. A friend sent this one to me a few days ago. Don't know if they're reputable, but looks like they have some good deals.

This thread got me thinking about a few other places - Sierra Trading Post being one of them. After a brief visit to their site, they have Sportief Supplex fishing shirts for $19.

I just bought a pair of wading boots - couldn't swing the Patagonia Marlwalkers at $115 - figures they have them on closeout for $76.

Matt - glad you got the Quest rod - they are not bad, especially when you factor in the cost.
