Howler Bros Matagorda Shirt Guide Review – Will Ezell:
Every season, new fly fishing gear and tackle floods fly shops and the online world hoping to grasp the attention of anglers and customers. We pick some of our favorites from the WorldCast Anglers Fly Shop, put it in the hands our guides and have them test and try them out. Whether working or fishing for fun, WorldCast Anglers guide Will Ezell spends tons of time on the water. Breathable and Sun protection are a must for him. Check out his experience with the Howler Brothers Matagorda Shirt.
“The Howler Brothers have knocked it out of the park with the Matagorda shirt. It is a lightweight, stylish shirt that can be worn in a multitude of settings. The breathable fabric makes brutal summer days much more bearable. The shirt also offers great coverage from the sun. Staying cool on summer days is made easy when you have the Matagorda shirt in your arsenal. Even with the light fabric it is a durable shirt that will stand against the abuse of everyday fishing.
Most days on the river I am trying to stay out of the sun and having the most coverage can be a big plus. When the temperature reaches into the 90’s it can be hard to keep shaded from the sun without getting over heated. The light material of the Matagorda shirt keeps you cool while keeping you shaded from the sun. The shirt also comes with plenty of pockets to store some light items. There is a zippered pocket and a pocket with a button. The shirt has held up through many days of guiding without any signs of where and tear.
Aside from days on the water, this shirt is a good light option for a hike. It’s also a stylish shirt that can be worn out to dinner. All this to say that the Matagorda shirt is a very versatile shirt. Being comfortable on the river is made much easier when wearing this lightweight shirt. Everyone knows that half of fishing is looking good out on the water and when you are wearing this shirt you have that half of it easily taken care of, that way you can focus on the fishing.”
