Wrangler adds fishing apparel to its off-road gear with shirts and shorts that stretch, wick and block UV rays.
The ATG Wrangler Angler Collection was designed for anglers with an emphasis on function and comfort. Its moisture-wicking fabrics should help you cool down and stretch to move with you.
Like the rest of the brand’s ATG clothing, the Angler collection is available in a wide range of sizes and silhouettes to suit a wider audience.

The Angler collection includes traditional looking shirts, shorts and dresses for men and women, as well as long sleeve performance t-shirts specially designed for fishing in direct sunlight.
Some pieces focus on wicking moisture away from your body while others also provide some protection against splashing water. All pieces offer some level of sun protection, with some pieces rated up to UPF 50.
Below we’ve rounded up some of the standouts from the collection to show the different styles available.
Angler Long Sleeve Shirt—Women’s and Men’s
When you think of a fishing shirt, that’s it – plus a few special features and the UPF 50 rating. From a cotton blend fabric that should give the shirt some stretch, it has two pockets chest (both with drainage holes, one with a deployable dry patch), plus rod loops to give you a free hand for changing gear.
The shirt also has a tab to keep your sleeves rolled up. Mesh vents in the back yoke allow for better airflow. And the finishing touch is a lens cleaner inside the hem.

Hooded sun T-shirt—Women

Extendable sun protection
If you’re an experienced angler, you may have seen someone start sweating too much and taking their shirt off. At the end of the day, they are red and complain of sunburn.
It’s always a temptation when fishing from the shore because there is often a breeze. But unlike sunscreen, a shirt only needs to be applied once.
Wrangler constructed much of the garments in the Angler Collection from absorbent materials and gave them mesh ventilation. This should help keep you dry and comfortable on the water, and the long sleeves protect you from UV rays.
Wrangler includes some of these strategies in its other ATG apparel as well. However, the Angler collection has little touches like rod loops and open storage pockets that suit anglers better than hikers. Explore the rest of the collection to see more clothing designed for fishing.
