Frequently Asked Questions
We are both a clothing line and a team of fishing guides. Because of this, we are asked a lot of questions. Take a look through these previously asked questions and see if there is an answer to yours. If you still have questions please feel free to contact us.
Q A How do I care for my sunshirt?
Q A What is UPF and does it matter?
UPF stands for ultraviolet protection factor. This is a numerical rating listing the protective properties of fabric. This indicates how much UVA and UVB rays penetrate the fabric to reach the skin. A UPF rating of 30 indicates 1/30 of ultraviolet light passes through the garmet. The highest UPF rating a garmet can be assigned is UPF 50+. This does not mean all UPF 50+ are equal. Our Coolibar collection takes this to another level. These fabrics have a custom weaving pattern to prevent light prenetration. The fabrics themselves have been treated with titanium and zinc molecules to reflect UV light and block heat from reaching your skin. Once wet the fast wicking and evaporating action rapidly cools bringing relief on hot or humid days. It is important to note, that once saturated the UPF properties of fabrics are diminished until dry.

All participants will need to bring a valid Arizona fishing license. We provide cold water and electrolyte containing beverages. Clients will need to bring food and snacks. Sunscreen and protective clothing is needed during day trips. Hats, sunglasses and cameras are highly recommended. Warm clothes are advised during cooler overnight trips. All participants or guardians of minors who participate will need to sign applicable forms.

Safety is our primary concern. If there is a significant chance of dangerous winds, lightning, excessive rain or unsafe conditions our guides may choose to cancel the trip. In the event of a weather related cancellation you will be given priority rebooking or refund per our terms and conditions. Light or moderate rain is not reason for trip cancellation.

Q A Can I fish with the same guide as last time?
We will always do our best to accomodate. Because of scheduling and availability we cannot always guarantee specific guides on exact dates.
