Could this solar-powered camo really make you invisible to fish?

Could this solar-powered camo really make you invisible to fish?

Hunters have been taking advantage of camouflage for centuries. Fishermen have, for all intents and purposes, assumed that fish couldn't spot them from underneath the water.

Columbia, a sportswear manufacturer, claims that its upcoming, $140 solar-powered shirt will keep fish getting antsy when an angler wades into their space.

The blue shirt has a lighter pixel pattern that only appears with sunlight, but looks like any normal button-up indoors. Supposedly, the pixels break up how a fisherman will be seen from underwater.

The light-activated camo means that a fisherman could potentially wear the shirt to work after a morning spent angling.

I've never heard of camouflage for fisherman, but at least the sun-activated camo means that you'll have a regular Oxford shirt if Columbia's claims turn out to be false.
