Gear for Skin Protection

In the photo, FS Reader Roger Laurez holds a big peacock bass—9 pounds, 12 ounces--that he caught fishing in the Kendall area of Miami Dade county.

FS Forum member Salty Senior made an observation on the FS Forum about the increasing number of folks on fishing shows wearing sun protective gear, including masks. You'll also see these masks being worn by a lot of anglers who make videos for the Web, as well, of course.

The observation sparked a number of comments about the concerns anglers share about protecting or not protecting their skin while on the water, and the thread includes a good bit of advice about some methods that folks have found that work for them.

Everyone agrees that skin protection is critical to anglers everywhere, and especially to those of us in Florida, but how concerned are you about it? What do you wear or use or do to protect your skin and your eyes, too?
