Going out for a day of fishing requires lots of gear, and arguably the most important is your outfit. Not because it needs to look cute, although the Simms Women's Isle Long-Sleeve Shirt is fairly fashionable, but because it is what stands between your delicate skin and the elements. Wear this shirt to protect yourself from the dangerous power of the sun, and help yourself stay cool at the same time. This shirt has a vented mesh back panel for plenty of airflow and is made of a moisture-wicking material that manages sweat and dries quickly to keep you comfortable on the water.

I love the brand Simms. When I bought my first shirt, made specifically for women, I was not let down.
Yes, this shirt is perfect for fishing - but I also love it for many other outdoor activities where I want to be covered from the sun and bugs. The shirt's material is downright magical- it feels like nothing against the skin which allows me to comfortably wear long sleeves even when it's hot out.
I bought the shirt in white, and I was pleasantly surprised by the sheerness of the material. I was expecting it to be super sheer and see-through because it's so light weight, but this is not the case... you can't really see through the shirt at all.
This shirt is also very easy to keep bright and clean. I was fishing in this top and got some fish blood all down the front of me. As I was on a trip, I couldn't wash the shirt for several days. Once I got back, it only took a splash of bleach and one cycle in the wash to have it looking brand new with no trace of the blood spatter.
I highly recommend this shirt to any women seeking a versatile lightweight long-sleeve top for fishing, hiking, paddling, camping, etc.
