The “Take Kids Fishing” Online Course
Sun Protection For Young Anglers
That is how often someone dies from skin cancer in America every single day.
Yep, every fifty-two minutes someone passes away that spent too much time in the sun… many of them are anglers like you and me… and most of them died too young.
How do I know?
Well, I was diagnosed with malignant melanoma skin cancer back when I was 28 years
old young. Malignant Melanoma is the same type of cancer that takes the lives of millions of people every year.
The doctors told me I was incredibly young to have skin cancer as bad as I did, and they were right.
The doctors also told me that most of my worst skin damage (which caused the melanoma cancer) wasn’t done back when I was in high school or college, it was actually caused back when I was a kid.
You see, I spent pretty much every day either out on the lake, on the beach, or out on the ocean. My family loved fishing and doing other things near the water, and if it wasn’t raining, we were outdoors doing something.
I actually used sunscreen, however, I rarely wore a shirt, and many times I went without a hat. Just my sunglasses and tan skin.
Looking back, I always thought it would never happen to me, but one day I woke up to find out that it did. Luckily, I caught my skin cancer just in time that it didn’t take my life. Many people aren’t as fortunate.
I’ve changed what I wear fishing, and I encourage everyone spending any amount of time in the sun to use the same.
Here are the FOUR things that no one should leave home without when fishing:
- Long sleeve microfiber sun protection shirt (these are my favorite)
- SPF 30+ sunscreen (with zinc oxide) for my legs, hands, and any other place exposed to the sun
- Polarized Sunglasses
Do you know what the dermatologists told me that causes the worst skin damage (that can eventually lead to skin cancer)?
Sunburns so bad that it causes your skin to peel. Don’t let your kids (or yourself) look like this after being out in the sun.
This online fishing course for kids was designed to help you get out there and catch fish quickly and affordably, but we would be doing families a disservice if we didn’t highlight the importance of what you need to wear while out in the sun.
It’s one thing to be able to catch more fish and create amazing memories while out on the water, but none of it matters if people are getting cancer because of it.
Part of our mission here at Salt Strong is equipping every angler with the most affordable, yet highest sun protection shirts on the market. So far, we’ve been able to do it as you will not find a higher quality shirt with a UPF Sun Protection rating of 50+ at a lower price anywhere.
Even if you don’t buy sun protection shirts from Salt Strong, please buy them somewhere. Your kids will thank you for it when they get older, just like they will this course.
