Fly Fishing Jacket

In fly fishing, a jacket is very important. This is because fly fishermen carry all of their gear with them while they wade up and down streams. Modern fly fishing jackets are also protective outerwear against harsh climatic conditions. They need at least four to six pockets. They should have a complete anatomical fit to allow for a full range of motion while wading and casting. Important features of these jackets include the fabric, zipper, zipper pull, and overall design.

Newer designed fly fishing jackets use Gore-Tex fabric which help them be waterproof. Gore-Tex fabric design has a heavy nylon face fabric especially in fabric areas that experience a lot of wear. The body should allows for great breathing to allow your body to cool and dry when needed.

Another issue and is the ability to pack and carry fly fishing jackets as needed. You should be able to roll up, or, store the jacket easily when you want to simply carry it, instead of wear it.

Fly Fishing Jackets

Fly fishing jackets need at least four zippered chest pockets. The zipper should be water-resistant, heat-resistant, and also be corrosion resistant. So, zippers need to be waterproof, and able to be useful without problem in the mountains or outside environment because of designed resistance to wind, water, sun, and salty environments.

I recommend that all components of a fly fishing jacket have passed a severe testing regime. Other design features include bellowed chest pockets and a horizontal zip back pocket. The unique cuff allows for maximum protection from water entry.

A standard in the Simms rain wear line, the Classic Guide Jacket utilizes Gore-Tex® 3-layer fabric with a 100% polyester face. This combination offers superior waterproof/breathable performance with a soft hand and fantastic water repellency. Built-in retractors, large hand warmer & fly box pockets and a back pocket offer sufficient storage for long days of fishing.
