Fly fishing can be a very demanding sport, both physically and mentally, so protecting yourself against the elements should be the first thing you think about before heading to any water. How many times has a freak downpour put and end to your fishing because you’ve forgotten your wading jacket?
We’ve recently taken delivery of our most anticipated fly fishing clothing yet, a full range of clothing from Airflo called the Airtex range. Providing a fully waterproof outer shell from the worst possible conditions known to anglers.
Here’s something more focused to the river angler. The Airflo Airtex wading jacket, a short cut design which is ideal for deep wading on rivers. The high riding chest pockets allow your fly boxes and tippet to be kept clear of the water, while strategically placed reinforcing pads take advantage of the extra durable Talson shell to provide great water repellecy. This jacket is fully breathable and will keep you warm, dry and comfortable for many fishing trips to come.
Some anglers are not too fussy on waders when looking for waterproof leggings or trousers, so a set of Bib and Brace style garment look the part and keep you dry when fishing from the bank or boat. They are much more comfortable and safer than a pair of chew waders whilst boat fishing they are also easier to get on and off too. The high back allows you to wear a short wading jacket as well as the longer, 3/4 length waterproof jackets for full protection.
The 3/4 length waterproof fishing jacket is ideal for keeping your body warm and dry. The lengthened bottom adds extra protection to your abdomen and to the top of your legs. Water is forced to run off over your waterproof trousers, ensuring your dryness all day long. With multiple ‘D’ rings for attaching various accessories and warm, zipper pockets give great security for your fishing gear.
