would longjohns under neoprene waders be good enough. With a warm jacket of course.

Probably good enough unless it is very cold but make sure you get the proper thick thermal longjohns and not the skimpy thin ones which one does see on sale in some places.

The heat pads are a good idea and reusable.

However when the button on them has been pushed you have to keep them in an inside pocket that keeps them warm for longer. A lot longer

Just putting them in your coat pocket they last just mins if it's very cold.

Try to use them as the last result as when it has been used its used.
Or buy a few of them.
I use them a lot in Boat fishing. happy happy

On really cold nights the first thing I do when I get to my fishing spot is

Set up beach buddy.....light coleman lamp and put it inside the beach buddy......find a large pebble and place it on top of coleman.

The lamp will soon take the chill out of the air inside the beach buddy and after about twenty minutes the pebble will be a perfect hand warmer....if you can find two good pebbles just keep swapping them over as the one your holding begins to cool winking

Many many years ago i used to go mid winter fishing.
at that time and i am sure a few forum members would have used this way to keep there hands warm.


It was a cleaned out bean tin with a few holes punched in the sides and a fire lighter broken up in bits and dropped into the bottom of the can .
Then lit.
Sorry guy's and gals might have given my age away there.

SHOULD SAY DON'T USE THEM ON A BOAT .
it annoys the skipper.

It is alright and correct to mention all manner and type of clothing, layers etc.............but you need on a exposed beach a wind break be it a shelter or brolly, the wind chill factor is a KILLER and that is not a figure off speech !!!!!! ,Hypothermia can set in without you even realising it

Before I knew better I used to wear Neopreen waders (sweat like hell and you finish up wetter on the inside than you are on the outside), Breathable waders are the thing with plenty of warm cloathing.

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!!

I would agree withe the Shelter and tilly lamp idea. Although 9 times out of ten i meake do with my flotation suit. Being a two piece, if its chilly then i can put them bottom half on to keep my legs and back warm, with armie issue "norgie" top under a hooded top to keep me warm along with a wooly hat. Then if it gets really cold, then the top half of the flotation suit comes out.

Although over the last 3-4 weekend ive been out every saturday night and havent had the need for the top half to go on. My girlfriend moans about being cold though, and everybody else who comes past is wrapped up like they're on an artic expedition but i feel fine with my wooly hat and jumpers. I was starting to think on saturday that there's something wront with me, but most people think there is silly laughing

In my opinion, it doesnt matter how many layers you wear, or wether or not youve got a shelter to sit in next to your tilly lamp.......... Never forget the wooly hat.

Just a minor point, but alcohol actually lowers your body temp even in small doses, and bearing in mind you will be on a beach, maybe a rock, coffee with the good stuff in it, should realy be saved for your xmas dinner!

ive tryed them heat pads once they cost far to much and where u put them ur skin gets warm and sweaty then it slims down ur back and ends up in the bottom of ur pants , im best idea is to where plent ov thin tops and socks with a nice floatacion suit and a must is a wind breaker i.e brolly or tent its the wind that will get you the coldist
