Fishing Clothing

What is your favorite fishing clothing item? I recently acquired a columbia PFG squall line parka and have not looked back at any of my old rain/ wet weather gear. By far one of my favorite jackets and I can add any insert I wish to the inside. What is some gear that makes your day on the water way more comfortable?

Anything from Old Harbor Outfitters. I discovered them in a little bait and tackle shop in Key West. The name of the place is Key West Bait & Tackle, actually. They have pretty much anything you'd need, but I love the shirts that I linked below. They also have these shirts in short sleeve.

The U/V Buff ~ It does it all . . .

I've always been curious... What is the main reason you like wearing those? I just don't see the appeal, not that there's anything wrong with them. Same effect as wearing long sleeves, it cools your neck off that much?

A cut off shirt in the summer time and whatever keeps me warm in the winter. so here in Georgia in the winter, a sweatshirt and jeans :eyebrows:

Summer time - T shirt and shorts and flip flops. Winter time - t shirt and shorts under my hunting clothes and boots.

I like the Buffs too.

I don't have to put or reapply sunblock to my neck. I also don't have to put sunblock on my face. When it gets cold, I can pull it up over my ears and head. When zooming down the water and it's chilly, it can be pulled up to my face for wind protection.

Without the Buff, I'd have to carry sunblock, Chapstick, a hat, a bandanna and ear muffs. I don't have hoods on all my sweaters and sometimes they need to be laundered too.

Having had several bouts with skin cancer, and after using Buff scarf and gloves for the past 2 years with clean bills of health, I'm sticking with them.

I use mine for cancer prevention.

I pretty much dress for winter down here, lol. Sun protection is a must. I put on a long sleeve sweat dissipater, a WWS short sleeve fishing shirt, pants, and running shoes (for comfort). Definately the Buff. Just got a Fishaflauge shirt, so that might make me more low profile, lol.

Looks like the "Buff" is popular and catching on.

It can be worn in several different ways, providing a little warmth on a cool morning and then decent U/V protection later on in the day. It also is a bit of a bug barrier when needed.

Like mentioned above, Buff and Sun Gloves are a good combo - skin cancer is no joke.

Summer- t- shirt, shorts, flip flops and a baseball hat if I am going fishing from home. T- shirt, jeans, baseball hat and work boots if I am going after work. Sunscreen on face and ears at all times.......if I remember LOL.

 

Spring and fall- jeans, hooded carhart zip up sweat shirt over a t- shirt, work boots, baseball hat if it's warm, knit carhart winter cap if it's cold. I often bring a lined lighter weight wind breaker type jacket as well.

 

Winter and ice fishng- flannel lined jeans, heavy carhart socks, same hooded carhart zip up sweat shirt over a long sleeve t-shirt, same carhart knit winter cap, and insulated waterproof winter boots. I will also bring my heavy winter coat and gloves for when I am out of the shanty, or walking to a new spot. But I like to dress a little lighter than most, I have plenty of "natural" body insulation LOL,and I run a heater in the shanty.

In the summer it is a wide brim hat.  Keeps you cooler than a ball cap and buff, and it does the same thing.  In winter I like anything that will cut the wind on a cold day.

I usually just wear cargo shorts and an old, dirty fishing t shirt when it's warm and jeans and an old sweatshirt when it's cold. As long as it has pockets i'm cool with it.

For me it is all synthetic everything no matter what the season.  Summer time it is usually a lightweight pair of pants or shorts, mountain Hardwear usually, a patagonia silk weight t-shirt and a pair of keens either slip on on straps depending if i am on the river or flatwater.  I always wear a hat and sunglasses and sunscreen. 

 

Winter time is pretty similar except i usually go with a pair of fleece pants underneath my chest waders, silkweight t-shirt then depending on the temperature it could be a midweight patagonia capilene or a 100wt fleece shirt or any combination of them all underneath either a soft shell jacket or a gore tex rain jacket.

 

Being a kayaker layering is key because even in 30 degree weather you can work up a sweat in the winter and sweat is your enemy so being able to modify layers is key.

Summertime was just some boardshorts, a tshirt, baseball cap, and sunscreen.  In the winter I wear my snowboarding gear. It's warm, waterproof, and doesn't prohibit my range of motion.

I am probably going to buy a few of their pfg fishing shirts for the summer time.  The PFG drain maker is a must for anyone loading a boat up. You can jump in the water and it literally drains out the bottom as you step out, awesome technology.

That is pretty cool. I'm strongly considering ordering a shirt or two.

 

EDIT: Or not. $25 for shipping to Canada? Egad.

Cold weather item: Cabelas Guidewear set. Just got them last September. This is a very good product.

 

Hot weather: Under Armour heat gear.

 

Sun protection:  Buff and Glacier Sun gloves. Don't screw with your skin.  The UV index at Clear Lake almost blistered me raw.  Sun screen doesn't cut it.  Cover up.  My wife had skin cancer on her face and almost lost her eye. Cover up boys and girls !!
