If you are not into putting on sun block every 15 minutes while you are fishing then one of the must have apparel item are the face mask.

I first saw and wore these mask in 2006. I saw a few of people in South Florida wearing them. So I research it online and ordered a couple.
When I first started to post photos of them on fishing forums people were laughing. Here it is 2012 and pretty much everyone owns not only one but multiple.

Back there there was only and handful but now a day you have tons of choices to pick from. I shot a video explaining the main difference in each sun mask I had available. These mask are now used to block sun, wind, rain, and cold.

Here is also a quick break down of the pros and cons of each face mask.

Buff Head wear, as far as I know the originator of the product. They have the most variety(it’s mind boggling) of any company out there. They also makes Polar Buff for protection in the cold as well as license products like the Bug Slinger series of buffs. Buff is like the Coke for carbonated drinks.. every time someone refers to a mask it instantly called a “Buff” now. Price starts at about $20.00
