The All-Time Best Columbia PFG Fishing Shirts
The unique shirts have a long history in the fishing community—and they’re popular for a reason. After all, you don’t become Luke Combs’ favorite shirt by doing just anything. The PFG line, which stands for Performance Fishing Gear, offers anglers advanced technology, along with a cool, laid-back style. Bill Ferreira, Columbia’s PFG-PHG director of global merchandising, calls it the “boat to bar” look.
“We built these shirts for the angler, but now it’s their everyday wear,” Ferreira says.
To pay tribute to the popular line of fishing shirts and to kick off an amazing season ahead, we’ve gathered the all-time best Columbia PFG shirts. Check out the winners below.
