The Cold Winter Fly Fishing (1/3) Clothes
This is a new mini series on my blog, it's about how to fly fish during the cold months. During January, three Sundays in a row you can read about my tips and tricks on how to be efficient and catch fish during winter. This is the first chapter which is going to be about how to get dressed to keep the cold out from limiting your time fishing.
This series is especially thought to help you get better results when fishing on the coast but you may find most of the things in the series interesting if you are for example fishing sea trout in rivers or any other species when the temperature is around or below the freezing point
I fish on Gotland during the whole winter, the coldest months are January and February where I don't recommend you going here to be honest. The risk is just too big for you having very cold temperatures making it impossible to fish. Some days are not too cold, they are difficult to plan a trip on but those days are exactly what these articles is for because those days can be great!
I will later on wright about what expectations you can have, tactics and tips. Also, why the fishing can be good and what you should think differently compared to other seasons. Now today's subject is about the clothes I'm wearing. I sometimes get questions about clothes so I thought i share with you what I wear during the most challenging time of the year, so here it is!
