The summer is just around the corner and we are hitting all of the sport stores in order to get the supplies we need to head out onto the lake and go fishing. In the south this is a great way to spend our weekends as a family or simply when we need to get out of the home and to think about what is going on.
It is important that you know where and how to find all of the right supplies. It also helps though to get your hands on the right type of fishing clothes that you will be able to wear comfortably. What you will need to do is go to the nearest sports and outdoors store and take a look around at your options.
Who said that you have to wear the traditional fishing garb? In this heat it is going to be great to get your hands on a pair of shorts and a t-shirt. This is going to help keep you cooled off while you are trying to enjoy yourself out on the lake. Just make sure to grab the light colored clothes. The dark colors will soak in a lot of the heat and have the opposite effect you are looking for.
The next thing that you will need to look for are some comfortable shoes that will keep your feet dry and protected. This is not the place to be wearing sneakers or sandals. Instead I would recommend that you wear boots that are thick and will keep your feet protected from any snakes you might run across.
Last but not least is the hat. This is going to help shade your eyes and keep the sun from burning up your face. If you like the traditional hats that men wear when fishing than go for it. I prefer something a bit more modern and usually wear the baseball cap. This is still comfortable – but shield my face better. It also matches well with the fun fishing shirts that I am wearing.
