Most recreational anglers fish during the warmer months of the year when the weather is nice. However, some of us fanatical anglers go all year round, whatever the weather. No matter if you are a coarse angler, a predator, a sea angler or a carp angler, you can keep on fishing (at least until there is ice). Winter fishing certainly has its charms and is a lot of fun. However, it becomes a lot less fun if you are not properly dressed for the cold days. Before you know it you are sitting at home in front of the stove because you’re just too cold. A good thermal suit will keep you warm even on the coldest days and can save your fishing day.
There are various types of suits on the market. Many of them are waterproof, so you can be prepared for heavy winter showers. The suit is usually worn over the clothing that you normally wear, to create an extra layer of warmth. The heat packs often consist of one, two or three parts. A one-piece suit is a kind of overall, a two-piece suit consists of loose trousers with braces and a long jacket. There are also three-piece suits on the market, which are very similar to the two-piece, but often have an extra thermal layer, so that you really do not get cold.
Do you fish from a boat on open water and do you want extra safety as well as warmth? Then choose a flotation suit. These suits are often just as warm as a thermal suit and they also make sure that you stay afloat if you fall overboard.
All major brands offer thermal fishing suits in their range. Especially brands such as Sunridge, Gamakatsu, Spro, Fox Rage and Fox are known for their high quality suits. Before you buy a wetsuit, think carefully about what you want to use it for. If you are an angler who moves around a lot, you will need a less warm suit than if you fish statically for carp during the winter months. If you’re sitting still, you will get cold faster. You might also want to go for a camouflage colour if you want to be inconspicuous on the bank, or a brightly coloured suit to stand out when fishing from a boat.
