Fishing boardshorts are a natural progression from AFTCO's heritage as the world's premier fishing short manufacturer. Not just a swimming trunk, AFTCO boardshorts are designed for the ultimate waterman. In collaboration with the industry's best surf and active wear designers, AFTCO mens fishing board shorts offer short styling with appropriate fishing character. Boardshort technology including AFLEX 2 & 4-way stretch fabrics that provide an unprecedented range of motion with exceptional memory, AFLITE ultralight fabric offers less restriction and more comfort, AFGUARD stain resistant protection shields against accidents, and AFBLOCK UPF UV protection, AFTCO boardshorts can handle any on the water condition. You will find that some of our boardshort styles for men are a more pure boardshort with minimal pockets, while others have built in side seam pockets with easy drain technology that allows you to store your extra egg sinkers. All of our boardies come equipped with our signature CORDURA® lined plier pockets.
