Fly Gear Guide - The Hemingway Poplin Fishing Shirt

Hemingway Poplin Fishing Shirt Review

Recently Robert Morselli of Fly Gear Guide reviewed our Hemingway poplin fishing shirt.  Here's what he had to say...

"Capital Sportsman decided that the fishing shirt needed a rethink, which resulted in the Hemingway 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..."

"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.

"...a standard in my fishing travel pack."

"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.

"Highly recommended."
