Maven Fly, Clothing for Women who Fish

3 01 2017

maven fly logoI spend a lot of my time fishing during the warmer months, or bowfishing when I can. I am always looking for clothes that have enough give to the fit to be able to move while casting or pulling the bowfishing bow. Maven Fly came through for me on a recent bowfishing for stingray trip, followed by flyfishing for bass.

When I first put on the Maven Fly Fishing Shirt, I immediately loved the tailored fit and look with princess seams. I could wear this shirt from creek to ocean to restaurant! While out bowfishing, I became aware of a feature that totaly sold me on this shirt; it is

water repellent! And unlike other shirts that proclaim to be water resistant or repellent, this one actually is! While everyone else was getting splashed and wet from the ocean spray, I was being splashed also, but the water never penetrated the shirt, so I stayed dry and comfortable. The shirt is manufactured of 100% Taslan Nylon with 100% Polyester Swiss Dot mesh backing, with the back being vented for airflow, and the cut is slightly longer, so the shirt does not ride up. There is a small zippered pocket on the back for storage of necessities, and Maven Fly pink accents finish the shirt off, and the UPF of 50+ keeps you safe from the sun. The shirt comes in sizes from XXS to XXL in three colors; Dusty Rose, Popper Green, and Hot White.

The Fly Pants are made of the same great Taslan Nylon material. They are also water repellent, and breathable. There are multiple cargo pockets, giving you space to stash everything you need to take fishing with you. They cover you with a

UPF of 30+ and come in the versatile colors of Silver Grey and Nomad Khaki. They come in sizes from XXS to XL, and also have the Maven Fly pink accents on the buttons and tie backs to shorten the pants to Capri length. The pants also have a slightly adjustable waist, which eliminates the need for a belt.

Accessories are available, including the Ball Cap in the Hot White color with the bold Maven Fly logo embroidered on the front, and the Custom UV Buff also available in the Hot White color with the Maven Fly logo pattern. The buff can be worn in multiple styles on either your head, neck, hair or even wrist. The versatility of the buff makes it extremely useful to have with you, and helps protect your skin from the sun. As with any outdoor activity, especially one that is near or on the water, protect your skin the best you can!

I wore the Fishing Shirt and Custom UV Buff while bowfishing for stingrays. The shirt was comfortable, being true to size, and kept me free from wet soaking through. The buff I kept switching around from my neck to wearing it as a head band or bandana. I was able to shot the bow without infringement, although my shooting needs lots of improvement!

Once back in Pennsylvania, I was fly fishing for bass on a local lake. This was the perfect opportunity to try out the entire ensemble. I was able to cast, fight fish and wade with ease. The best part of both trips was that at the end of the day, I was able to go out to eat with my husband straight from the water, and look good! The clothes that look like dress clothes and wear like outdoor clothes!
