Welcome to 12wt.

We fish the flats. We respect both the beauty and the harshness of these unique environments. We've created the 12wt. sun protection clothing line to deliver the ultimate level of performance, comfort, and UV protection, with a unique sense of style.

We make our apparel and accessories for the full sun, oppressive heat, and high humidity found in places like Key West, Andros Island, the Seychelles, and Christmas Island. Today, 12wt. is rapidly gaining a reputation for reliable sun protection, comfort and "feel" from anglers and captains worldwide.

Enjoy your visit to our store.
