With the Patagonia Tropic Comfort Natural Hoody long sleeve shirt you are best equipped for fishing under glaring sun and oppressive heat - whether in the tropics or on home waters.
Made from renewable, natural beech pulp, modal is super soft and wears similarly to cotton, and is pleasantly soft against the skin without being sticky. The quick-drying polyester spandex fabric is highly breathable, absorbing and quickly releasing moisture to keep you dry at all times. With 40+UPF sun protection, the hoody provides the ultimate protection factor on hot days on the flats, river or boat. The hood replaces neck scarves and wide-brimmed hats and is deliberately cut wide enough to allow you to wear a peaked cap underneath. The slightly longer sleeves with thumb tabs cover the backs of the hands for additional sun protection.
Sauna or no sauna, the Patagonia Tropic Comfort Shirt offers supreme comfort and protects you from dangerous sun rays so you can focus on your target fish.

On adh-world you find a lot of useful information about sun protection.
„Similar to all other outdoor activities and sports performed on the water, a proper protection from dangerous UV radiation plays a big role in fly fishing too. Especially in the summer months when sun's intensity is the strongest.“
