Saltwater fly-fishermen universally like to look good while on the water; here's a shirt that will help you do just that. This polo style may be different from many of the more conventional fly-fishing styles that feature slits, mesh and flaps, but it's designed for performance - and that's what matters.

L.L.Bean's Performance Polo is made from a lightweight fabric that wicks moisture and keeps you cool even in brutal tropical climates. A grid texture moves moisture more efficiently than traditional flat knits, and the shirt offers built-in UPF 50+ sun protection. Yet this doesn't compromise the shirt's breathability, nor its ability to dry quickly. Featuring a zip chest pocket, the Performance Polo also offers front tabs that can hold miscellaneous fly gear and eyewear. MSRP is $29.95. www.llbean.com
