Keeping your core warm and all of your lures, flies and supplies handy is important for any day on the water. Avid fishermen use fishing vests, wading jackets and fly fishing vests interchangeably for the type of fishing they enjoy, depending on the season. Wading jackets are especially nice during early spring fly fishing when the water is ice cold from snow melt on the mountains. Wading jackets and fishing jackets cover your arms from harsh sun and glare off of the water. Fly fishing vests and regular fishing vests offer plenty of pockets for storage and are a lighter alternative to jackets during the summer fishing season. Redington, Sage and Wright & McGill Co. are fantastic companies to search for the best in fly fishing vests and wading jackets.
