Having the right gear when fishing extends beyond the rod, reel, lure and line you use. Often, having the right technical clothing and footwear can make all the difference between a great trip and a frustrating one. Brands like Simms, Aquaskinz, Guy Cotton, Stormr, MAK and others are raising the bar and keeping anglers fishing longer, more effectively and especially more comfortably than ever before.
Sometimes you just want to feel comfortable but sometimes clothing is more than just that. High performance fabrics can contain UV protection, water and bug repellent, and breathability. When fishing in harsh sun try to cover as much as possible to stay cool and avoid the harmful rays of the sun. Good footwear is important, too, for good grip on boat decks, wet wading, and on slippery rocks.
