Best Ways For Fisherman To Prevent Skin Cancer

Protecting ourselves from the sun is on every outdoorsman's radar screen today, as well it should be. The myths surrounding skin cancer are scary and the statistics showing the rise in melanomal (skin) cancer are even more frightening:

  • In the last 30 years, more people have died from skin cancer thanĀ all the other cancers combined
