Recently Robert Morselli of Fly Gear Guide reviewed our Classic Poplin Fishing Shirt. Here's what he had to say...
"Capital Sportsman decided that the fishing shirt needed a rethink, which resulted in the [Classic Fisherman's Classic Poplin] fishing shirt.
"It has standard components like a vented rear panel, tool loop, roll-up sleeve tabs and two large fly box pockets. To that foundation, they added an inventive roll-up collar for sun and wind protection: it folds down and under itself and remains invisible when not in use.
"Casting comfort is addressed via a very generous cut (if you hover between a size medium and large, consider sizing down to a medium). Best of all is the fabric, which is 100% Poplin LeaderLite cotton. It’s a near-perfect fabric weave: slightly water resistant (water beads off of it), airs through very well and is efficient at both cooling and rapid drying. It also delivers a good degree of sun protection and stain resistance.
"Wikipedia has this to say about Poplin: shirts made from this material are easy to iron and do not wrinkle easily. My testing supported that. This shirt has become a standard in my fishing travel pack.
