Stay Warm, Go Fish - 11 Essentials for Cold Weather Fishing!

Ivan Orsic / Oct 10, 2019

We don't know about you, but this October snowstorm hit us square in the noses. Our cold, shivering noses. Scrambling to find our winter wears, we figured some of you might be in the same boat. This jolt of cold and snow calls for some proper layering and go-to cold-weather pieces. Good thing, we've got plenty of options for you as we inch towards those colder months.

SIMMS Coldweather LS Shirt | This waffle-lined flannel looks the part for the brisk fall day and can keep you warm when the mercury starts to drop big time in the winter. It's a classic for a reason.

SIMMS West Fork Jacket | Built with purpose, the West Fork Jacket features low-bulk PrimaLoft Gold Insulation with Cross Core Technology. To maximize thermal performance, more PrimaLoft Gold Insulation is utilized in the core of the jacket and it is streamlined through the sleeves for better mobility. The West Fork Jacket is built for those cold, windy days on the water when you're looking for that big payoff.

SIMMS Midcurrent Hooded Jacket | SIMMS has absolutely dialed in their layering pieces this year and the Midcurrent Hooded Jacket is no exception. Lightweight, but warm - this jacket features the PrimaLoft Gold Insulation and Cross Core Technology just like the West Fork Jacket, but to a lighter extent.

Howler Brothers Harker's Flannel | You can't go wrong with a good flannel when the temperatures start to drop and the Harker's Flannel is a mainstay for us.

Howler Brothers Shaman Vest | With 100-gram PrimaLoft insulation, the Shaman Vest is just what the doctor ordered for fishing those cool fall days.

SIMMS Guide Windbloc Foldover Mitt | It's hard to tie knots with gloves on. It's also hard to tie knots with freezing cold fingers. Enter the Guide Windbloc Foldover Mitt, keep your fingers nice and toasty until the time to tie knots comes.

SIMMS Wool Half-Finger Glove | Wool = Warmth + Moisture-Wicking. It always has and always will.

SIMMS Riverbank Chukka Boot | Perfect for snowy mornings on the boat ramp, the Chukka version of the SIMMS Riverbank Boot is a fully waterproof rubber and neoprene boot with grid-fleece lining. Easy On...and Easy Off.

SIMMS Women's Midcurrent Hooded Jacket | Lightweight and warm for those in-between days or used as a layering piece, the Women's Midcurrent Hooded Jacket is an excellent addition to your cold combating wardrobe.

SIMMS Women's Sunrise Tonic | Flannels are a must-have. With a slimming tunic silhouette, the Sunrise Tunic is your go-to flannel for everyday activities on and off the water.

SIMMS Guide Thermal OTC Sock | Have you ever worn a thick, pure Merino wool sock while fishing on the coldest of winter days? If you have, you know your feet will thank you.
