Choosing the Right Carp Clothing this Winter
The damp and cold weather that takes over the United Kingdom in winter months is not a reason carp fishing should be packed up until the warmer months. Autumn and winter are great times of the year to continue carp fishing hobbies, as long as the correct clothing is worn. The right clothing can make any difficult carp fishing session a lot more bearable, as well as keeping you dry and warm!
Winter is one of the worst seasons in England when it comes to rain. Ensuring you have a good quality jacket that is waterproof will help to keep you dry and warm, but also active whilst out fishing. The best jacket to look for is something that is has multiple features and is made from quality yet lightweight material to keep you comfortable.
Whilst you’ll have a waterproof jacket, you’ll be needing a nice warm coat during the winter months too. The great thing about the winter jackets you can buy from fishing specialists, are a lot of them are designed with carp anglers in mind. This means that while they keep you warm, dry and protected from the elements, you’ll also have the right amount of space for the movement you need.
A quality jumper is the answer to keeping you extra warm whilst out on the bank fishing. There are so many choices for jumpers or hoodies and all designed for carp anglers, keeping you looking great and feeling great. There are a number of great jumpers available with fleecy insides perfect for any avid fisherman out on the banks in the harsh winter weather.
Though nice waterproofs and cosy jackets will keep you warm up top, it’s worth nothing if your feet are cold and wet. Wearing the correct footwear during the winter weather can stop your feet from becoming damp, prevent you from slipping in mud or ice and give you comfort and warmth from the harsh weather. We’d advise opting for thick, well made, comfortable boots that keep your feet warm but don’t make them sweat or swell.
Ensuring your head and ears are kept warm during the colder winter months is extremely important when carp fishing. Hats are ideal for both day and night carp fishing sessions, and will make a huge difference to your overall body temperature, as well as preventing you from getting any nasty headaches. We’d go for something waterproof is possible, as well as insulated to keep the warmth in.
There are other accessory items that can help to really keep you warm as you fish in the colder weather. Thermal long johns and vests are a great way of keeping the heat in and keeping comfortable. We would also suggest getting thermal socks. These make such a difference in comparison to normal socks and really keep the heat in, as well as adding comfort within your boots!If you’d like extra help on obtaining the right winter carp fishing clothing for you, why not get in touch with a member of the Gone Fishing team today.
