Jackets Anyone?

January 13, 2010

– Any fisherman knows that wearing the proper jacket is the key to being comfortable while spending long (or short) periods of time on the water. Maine is know the world over for its sporadic weather patterns, and I can attest to this fact all too well. Time and time again, season after season I can likely be found on more than one occasion sitting in a torrential downpour after a morning of blue skies and sunshine. Why not just pack it up and call it a day you ask? Because Fish, oddly enough, are not afraid of a little water. In fact, some of my better days fishing have been during random rain storms and the occasional thunder storm. (I DO NOT recommend waving a 9ft graphite rod in the air during thunder and lighting storms)

So instead of complaining about the rain and sitting around in sopping wet clothing all afternoon, I would recommend purchasing a packable rain coat. Lucky for you, LLBean has a great selection of lightweight, quality wading jackets that do a great job of keeping the rain off your back. For 2010 they have updated their best selling Emerger Wading jacket, packing in even more value for the same reasonable price. Lighter weight material, fleece lined pockets, neoprene gusseted cuffs, and secure hood adjustments all work together to keep you comfortable and dry while on the water.

But what about those cold rainy days when a simple shell just isn’t enough? Look no further than the new Pocket Water Fleece Jacket. Designed specifically with fishermen in mind, this breathable jacket will fit perfectly under your waders and wading jacket, giving you another comfortable layer to protect against the elements. A combination of fleece, soft shell, and waterproof fabrics make the Pocket Water Fleece a must have for Spring and Fall fishing trips. Once again, an affordable product backed with the LLBean satisfaction guarantee. Learn more about the Pocket Water Fleece today!

So next time your on the water complaining about being cold or wet, don’t say I didn’t warn you! Being prepared for whatever mother nature throws your way will almost always guarantee you a more successful and enjoyable day on the water. Now if only I could get all this snow and ice to melt!

Happy Castings,
