Clothing & Personal Items

Clothing and personal items are often things that are forgotten and overlooked when packing for a fishing trip because most people are only concerned about fishing gear. It is important to ensure that you wear and pack appropriate clothing and personal items for the weather you are about to endure and for the time period you plan on being away from. Depending on the season you decide to go fishing, clothing and personal items will vary.

Health, Safety, & Hygeine

Health and safety items are objects that you surely will not want to forget. Accidents can happen and it’s always better to be safe than sorry. Being prepared for injuries and accidents is always a good precaution when fishing as you can be quite distant from the nearest landing. Hygiene items are also important items that should not be overlooked. Maintaining good personal hygiene will make your experience and the experience of others around you much more enjoyable.

Follow these checklists to ensure that you have everything you need for your next fishing trip.
