Fishing suits come in all shapes sizes and colours.As always with fishing the clothes you wear will depend on the weather,a cold wet fisherman is an unhappy fisherman.Luckily nowadays with all the technical advances in fabric manufacturing the suits are lightweight waterproof but at the same time warm.
Depending on the time of year you go fishing there are fishing suits for any condition.For the deep winter fishing a good 3/4 length jacket with bib and brace that also has a removable fleece jacket inner lining.This would keep you warm and comfortable for many hours and the longer you stay warm the longer you can stay out fishing.
If its mild but wet and you just need to keep dry then a lightweight breathable suit is whats needed. These are great for putting over the top of your clothes.At the end of the day if you really enjoy your fishing and you want to keep enjoying it, its best to get yourself at least two fishing suits. One lightweight and one that comes with bib and brace and fleece zipped inside.
Waders are essential fishing equipment for many anglers, and those that use them regularly swear by them, and say that are able to catch more fish and enjoy fishing even more.
So, if you're looking for waders, what should you look out for?
When choosing your first pair of waders you will definitely have a budget in mind, and know what you are realistically willing to spend. You don't have to buy the most expensive waders in order to get the most out of your fishing, nor should you instinctively dismiss the cheaper waders solely on price.
Your waders will need to fit properly, and be suitable. You may need to be able to work a fair distance in them, depending on where you fish, and what you fish for.
Waders need to be comfortable as well as fitting well. You'll need to make sure that you think you'll be able to stand up for several hours in them, in the cold and wet. You'll also need to make sure that you have all the pockets and belt loops you need so that you can carry your essential fishing accessories with you.
Standing in the water fishing can be quite a hostile environment for clothing. Think about over hanging branches rocks and branches in the water, and the walk to and from the bank of the river
Depending on where you fish can help you to determine how much you need waders. If you spend all of your time at the edge of a lake, and see fishing more as a break from work and the family, and the chance to spend some time for yourself, then you might choose to sit by a lake all day. On the other hand, you might take your fishing seriously and want to fish fast rivers, or catch a certain type of fish.
6. How often
How often you anticipate wearing your waders can be an important factor when choosing waders. If you think you might wear them once or twice a year, then clearly there's little point in spending hundreds of pounds on them. Conversely, you should spend as much as you can afford, and get the best waders, if you think you'll wear them every time you go fishing.
Some anglers fish for different types of fish at different times of the year. If you know that your fishing changes during the year, then you may need better and warmer waders in the winter compared to when you're fishing in the warmer months.
You'll need to make sure that you take care of your waders so that they will last, and provide the warmth and protection you need whilst you're out fishing. Look out for any rips of tears that become more serious if left untreated.
You may not be fussy about the brand of waders you choose. You may want to have the same brand as the rest of your fishing clothing because you know it fits, and provides the protection and performance you need. You might want to choose a brand that is well known for waders, or clothing, rather than a brand that makes everything from rods to jackets.
Whatever brand of waders you choose, however much you spend, and however often you wear your waders, you'll want to make sure that they offer value for money, and provide the quality you need.
Now you know more about waders, and how to choose them, why not take the plunge, and get in the water, with some new waders?

Go carp fishing in the wind and rain, or stay warm in the shopping centre with the wife? No contest really, so I sorted out my carp fishing tackle on Friday night and left at the crack of dawn Saturday morning.
I arrived at a small local water at around 6:30 and it was blowing a hoolie with gusts up to around 50mph and raining cats and dogs. Still I figured it should make for a quiet day on the lake (in fact I didn't see anybody else all day, other than the bailiff). It should also make the fish easy to find. A wind like this on a fairly mild day, and they were bound to be right on the far end of the wind. I had a quick scout around, just to make sure, and was right.
I got my bivvy set up in record time and pegged it down hard against the fierce wind.
A few handfuls of pellets and chopped boilies went in tight to the margins under an overhanging bush and another few went about 10 feet from the bank into a 3 foot wide channel I have fished to in the past.
I put a single Carple Steamer Lobster on a simple Snakebite rig and dropped it into the margins by hand.
The same setup went on to my other rod and this was cast into the channel. I was just settling into my Terry Hearn recliner when my alarm screamed and the line sped off my Shimano baitrunner on the margins setup. The result after a short but spirited fight was a 9lb 4oz mirror. A nice start to the session and it was still only 7:30. The next 3 hours accounted for a further 5 mirrors culminating with a fish of 12lb 2oz. All of these fish had come from tight to the margins.
I had not had a peep from my other setup, but I was confident that there would be some movement through the channel. However, as I had returned the 12 pounder, my Micron screamed. I scrambled over to my other rod and struck hard. I knew straight away that this was not another mirror, as they tend to be strong but slow on this water. This fish raced right across the lake in just a few seconds. It put up a great fight, but I eventually slipped my landing net under a beautiful, full-bodied, dark gold common. It weighed in at 20lb 8oz.
The rest of the day produced a further 5 high singles - all mirrors again. I was soaked through to my boxers, but happy and satisfied with a great day. Around 100lb of crap in around 9 hours.
Mind you, that was poor compared to the £300 my wife spend in just 4 hours at the sales!

As the winter approaches, you'll soon be thinking about whether
your winter coat will stand up to another winter of cold and wet weather, and whether your waterproof trousers will still be waterproof this year.
If you decide you need new waterproof clothing, what should you look for?
1. Is it really waterproof? Make sure that the waterproof clothing is really waterproof. Getting caught in a quick shower on the way to the car after work is not the same as needing to stay dry whilst hunting or fishing for a full day.
2. What other features? Make sure that the pockets are of a decent size, and can still be accessed when you are wearing gloves. The zips and seams should all be waterproof too. The hood will also need to fit you well, otherwise you might need a hat.
3. What about showerproof? If you don't need to stay bone dry for the whole day, then perhaps showerproof clothing will be a more cost effective solution for you.
4. How often will you wear it? If you're only going to be wearing it now and again, or don't really think that you'll get a lot of use out of waterproof clothing, it's probably not worth spending a lot of money on it.
5. What will you be doing whilst wearing it? If you're going to be stood watching your children play football in all weathers, then you probably won't need the same flexibility and range of movement as someone who will be shooting or fishing. If you are fishing or hunting, then you'll want to make sure that you can move your arms freely, an also that your clothing is quiet too.
6. Is the colour important? If you waterproof clothing is for wearing around town or for walking in the countryside, you might want to choose bright colours to cheer you up when it is raining, and also so that you can be spotted. Alternatively, you might need camouflage or subdued colours if you are fishing or hunting.
7. What else will you need? Don't forget that you might need waterproof trousers, boots or a hat and scarf as well as your waterproof jacket.
8. Are the expensive brands worth it? The best waterproof clothing won't be cheap, and if you want to stay dry then you'll have to be prepared to pay for it. As well as having an enviable reputation, you get what you pay for from the big brands, and you'll probably find that you waterproof clothing will last for years, and so prove to be a sound investment.
9. Do you need to be warm as well? If you do, you might want to be able to add a fleece underneath a waterproof jacket, or layer waterproof trousers over your normal trousers.
10. Where to buy? Ideally you want to try as much waterproof clothing as you can, so that you know what features you need, and which brands and sizes fit you. If you already have a preferred brand, or know what fits you, why not buy online and save both time and money?
Now you know how to choose waterproof clothing, why not buy it now before the winter comes, and it's too late?

If you go fishing and want to improve your luck then wearing the correct clothes can only help. The fact is that fish can see you when you're on the bank and they are smarter then we all think.
However, there are certain things you can do and not do that need to be considered when you are getting your fishing equipment.
The first thing that you will need is some good waterproof footwear. If you are going to be climbing up a river bank fishing for trout then you might want to get shorter rubber shoes and accept that your feet are going to get wet and just empty your shoes from time to time.
Calf or hip length rubber boots or waders are a real bad idea, because if you do end up in the water,which you probably will at some point,they will fill up. Hip waders are for shore fishing on lakes where you have far less chance of slipping.
A nice loose fitting camouflage suit works best for most fishing and also remember that you will need some camouflage paint for your face as well if you are serious. A camouflage fanny pack works great for keeping your gear in while you are on the move and you can leave the bulk of your tackle in a box on the bank.
One important item to bring along with your outfit is a head net or you will run the risk of being eaten by mosquitoes or biting flies. When you are all dressed in your camouflage outfit and ready to catch some fish, don't forget that you still have to sneak up on them so stay low and out of the sun and be very quiet and you will improve your chances greatly.

The best type of fishing clothing outer garment should be light, comfortable breathable and yet 100 per waterproof.
There is a large range of suits, jackets and trousers, and bib and brace coupled with the three quarter jacket gives complete versatility what ever the weather.
I would highly recommend a jacket with a detectable hood, if its a windy cool day the hood can be a little annoying with it flapping around so having one that you can take of is well worth it. Jackets with a bib and brace are also very convenient.
Three quarter jackets with a separate zip-out quilted lining that can be worn independently of each other are great for those days when the weather can't make up its mind what it’s going to do, so you have the versatility for any weather condition.
Always make sure that when you buy outer fishing clothing that it is at least one size too big, this is to allow for a one piece thermal suit or thermal underwear underneath for when you are fishing in the depths of winter, my favorite time.
whilst on the subject of winter, the body loses heat from the head, hands and feet faster than the rest of the body. A good hat is a must. A wide brimmed waterproof tribe with chin straps is a good idea for the rainy days and a thick woolly hat or balaclava for those freezing days.
Waders and gloves.
The best angling gloves for warmth have got to be Neoprene gloves. For mobile anglers the fingerless gloves are good whilst the cut finger type could better suite the the static fishing. With this type the whole of the hand is covered but when it comes the rebaiting the first two fingers and thumb of the glove can be folded back and the Velcro keeps them in place.
Depending on the weather conditions and water conditions as well as water temperature the choice of footwear is also wide just as it should be, after all they need to be efficient in what they do and be comfortable.These are the most important item when it comes to fishing clothing.
In the summer its best to use derriboots, chest or thigh waders, winter i would use thermally lined moonboots or thigh waders could be handy as well. Another great pair of chest waders are Neoprene. Make sure you have a few extra pairs of thick socks and some thermal.
