As the Winter months are on the way, and this will be my first winter fishing. Besides the wrap warm and the must of a flask with the drop of the good stuff in to keep you warm. Does anyone have any good advice ? or anything on the market that will also help to keep you warm ???

Cheers Rory

Get your self a beach shelter or an umbrella so you can keep the wind off you.It makes all the difference and you can keep all your tackle and bait organized

Hi, get yourself some long johns, not pretty but warm, also wear a couple of layers of clothing, this helps to trap heat in. dont wear anything too tight, if it gets cold and touches you it transfers the cold, decent gloves are a must, get some surgical gloves to wear under them for when your baiting up etc, cos wet hands take a lot of drying and warming up again. decent boots and socks are a must, if your feet get cold the rest soon follows, and also a good hat with flaps if poss to keep your lugholes warm. If you cant do this take keiths advice and stay in with a mug of cocoa. big grin Cheers..Mick

My kit is: 1. A lined shirt (the sort builders, etc often wear).
2. A decent fleece.
3. A lined waterproof ski jacket ex Lidl for 20 but Aldi often offer them at a good price too.
4. A pair of proper thermal longjohns (not the skimpy ones you sometimes see.
5. A pair of waterproof thermal lined snowboarder trousers - agin ex Lidl for 10.
6. Proper thick walkers socks and waterproof walkers boots.
7. Fingerless thermal gloves
8. A thermal beanie hat.
Yeah, I know I could have a floatation suit but they can be a bit stiff and awkward and I can vary my kit according to how cold the night will be.
If it gets too cold in Jan/Feb, I don't go cos there won't be many fish anyway.

go to any outdoor shop and get some thermals, i got mine for about 20.
team these up with a light tshirt, hoodie and decent waterproof jacket on top, and a tracksuit bottoms and waders. next up is the hat and gloves, warm wolly hat with a fleece lining inside and neoprane gloves and youll be nice and snug.

At night use a coleman or tilly lamp, that way you get light and heat.
And if your fishing near the car a small gas stove and kettle. big grin

"drop of the good stuff in to keep you warm"

If you mean alcohol, it does not keep you warm...it may make you feel warm but it brings blood to the surface blood vessels and increases heat loss......quite the opposite of the intended effect.

A good thick soup is 'good stuff' in this context.....not whisky.

make yourself a small brazier, get an old well made sweety tin put big holes in the lid and some around the bottom edge,take a packet of parrafin blocks (you can also put them in the tin until needed) useful and does keep the chill off.but some cup-a-soups are very good for fuelling the body.if you do happen to get wet then remove the offending article immediately,dry the area and cover with fresh dry clothing,hypothermia does kill,and its hard to know you are suffering from it.

best of luck and stay dry!!
