My Mistakes. Sunburn.

Day one, it isn’t much of an issue. Day 3, day 4… 6… it’s an issue and it can really put a dent in your experience.

My “problem areas” are:

  • The spot below my cap and above my buff on the side of my head
  • The backs of my hands

I’ve thus far avoided a bad burn on the tops of my feet, but I can see how that would be an issue. I think it is a matter of time before they make sun gloves for your feet for boats (if you make this and sell it, I want a %).

The backs of my hands is the part that has gotten bad on some trips. I simply don’t re-apply sunscreen enough and have a habit of leaving my sun gloves back at the lodge. I noticed one trip where I was constantly trying to hide my hands from the sun with my body. It meant I was distracted and it meant I was probably not paying as much attention as I could have been to the fishing.

Don’t do things that take you out of the moment. Getting the right gear to keep you covered and sunburn free is key.

Finally... wearing the gloves.
