How to Dress for Fly Fishing

As is the case with any outdoor activity, a fulfilling day of fly fishing depends not only on catching fish but also on comfort and safety. The most comfortable clothing are going to be made of synthetic and/or natural, breathable materials. These materials will protect the angler when inclement weather sets in.

When selecting clothing it is best to select items that have earth tones such as browns, tans or greens. These colors help the angler blend in with the surrounding environment, making them as unnoticeable as possible to the fish.

Summertime or warm climate fishing is easy to dress for. You can wear almost anything that will keep you cool and comfortable. Lightweight cotton or synthetic material will allow the perspiration to escape the easiest. Along with this, it is important to protect against the sun. Make sure to wear sunscreen, a hat and sunglasses. Some anglers who don’t mind getting wet will wear shorts and either a wading shoe or boot to protect their feet while wading.

Wintertime or cold climate fishing is a bit more challenging to prepare for. Choosing the proper interior clothing is essential when dressing for these occasions. Fleece or wool socks, long underwear and sweaters are essential. You’ll want to select a pair of pants that are not too tight or too loose. Jeans are not recommended because they don’t have much give to them and restrict movement when worn inside a pair of waders. Long underwear and either khakis or sweatpants are ideal.

In either climate you’ll want to be prepared for rain. The climate will determine what type of rain gear you wear. In warmer weather you’ll naturally want to wear lightweight rain gear that allows your body to breathe. In colder weather you’ll want to make sure you have some insulated rain gear available.

You’ll finish off your ensemble with the fly fishing vest. We’ve already discussed vests at some length in the Vests section so we won’t spend additional time here. Fishermen should consider how many things they intend to carry with them and then select an adequate vest for the task.
