Heavy Blend Crewneck
Tilapia – that one name classifies nearly 100 species of cichlid fish! Native to Africa and the Middle East, this fish has become so popular that it’s been introduced to many fresh water systems across the planet. This crewneck sweatshirt can serve as a tribute to the fourth most consumed fish worldwide! Tilapia species have similar characteristics of averaging 10 inches in length and being black, white and yellow in color. Anglers have many techniques to hook one, but only one to reel them in. Thin easily torn lips makes patience a virtue you will need to possess.
Sometimes introducing a fish into non-native waters has disastrous effects. Other species get compromised, the eco system is thrown out of balance, and worst of all for us anglers: some tried and true fishing holes can be closed! Thankfully that is not the case for the waters that the Tilapia calls home. Here at Gill McFinn’s we think that deserves to be honored with this fishing crewneck sweatshirt. Even if you don’t angle for this fish yourself, we bet that you have met it once or twice in battle… on your dinner plate!
