What to Take For a Day's Fishing
31 May 2016
As we head into the summer months, many of us fond of outdoor country pursuits will be turning our attention to fishing. It's a perfectly fine way to spend an early summer's evening - especially if luck's on your side. Aside from rods, reels, nets and bait - the essentials - you'll need some practical essentials to avoid dampening your fishing experience. Let's start with the bag: once you have your specialist equipment, you'll need a durable and weather-proof bag to carry them. Chapman's Troutbeck Fishing Bag is just the ticket - it's made here in the UK from the finest quality waterproof canvas and has plenty of compartments for kit. Crucially, it features a detachable waterproof lining for easy cleaning. Next is some waterproof clothing. Even if the forecast says blue skies and sunshine, don't go anywhere without a waterproof layer, such as Schöffel's lightweight packaway jacket, which stows away easily if the weather is indeed clear. Footwear needs to be ultra-practical as you need to be steady underfoot. We highly recommend the finest wellington boots by French heritage brand Le Chameau. They're made from a natural rubber, fully lined and available in a number of calf widths for a perfect fit. Finally, if the fish fail to bite, there's always the option of wiling away the hours with a tipple of your choice. This stainless steel flask is bound with fine brown leather, and comes complete with stainless steel cups - should you wish to share.
