One thing worth mentioning in winter more than any other time of the year , have a spare set of warm clothes in your car and a big beach towel. I learned the lesson the hard way a few years ago under Copley Bridge , in January I havenít been out since the end of September but the spare clothes I vacuum bagged after that incident are ready to go when I am .

I wear Seeland Keeper Trousers, they aren't the cheapest you'll buy but they are very durable and I'm never cold with them.

Ba11s to all that, What happens if one of those sexy joggers who are always around chats you up, I'll stick with my Calvins at least it wouldn't put them off at a crucial moment if one ever came up.

When I coarse fished, fishing matches week in week out regardless of the weather you wore moon boots and a full fleece suit and were sat on a box for 5-6 hours, with apadded jacket and bib and brace not able to move or go home, (winter leagues), until the match had finished.

People say don't wear cotton, however half of what you read about thermal clothing is marketing. If anybody can show me a nylon product that actually soaks up persperation and moves it from one layer to another, in to out, I'll be amazed. The underlayer allows the skin to breath and the cotton helps to stop you sweating by abosorbing any moisture. The only time cotton stops the skin breathing is when it reaches saturation point and if I leak that much fluid I'd have to go home due to dehydration.
Dave my comments about cotton really aplies to falling in or any other way of getting that layer wet.

Other anglers should take note of that list, because it is as fine tuned as it gets.

Only thing I would add is - a decent fleece neck gaiter, which makes the equivalent temperature difference as wearing another layer all over. Keeps neck warm and prevents heat from leaving your core.

Down and Primaloft keep you warm when stationary, fleece just keeps warm when moving.

Merino rocks.
Cotton sucks.

Hi Gents.
We are all using similar gear. I find two chemical hotties (the small chemical sachets) work great. I stick one in each pocket close to my thighs and have a tight tee shirt with two chest pockets. I slip two in there as well, and it really helps a lot. I have tested them and when I take them out from the enclosed pockets after 6 hours they are still very hot. I always carry a small hot flask of drink in my wader jacket. Pre heat the thermos for 3 minutes with boiling water, boil your milk until red hot and add that to your tea before putting it all together. You end up with a boiling hot cup of tea just when you need it.I always slip a few chocolate digestives in the pocket as well. Life seems a lot better when you are freezing cold, and then propped up against the dam wall and a hot tea and a digestive

My skiing base layers give me a good base (or even a pair of lycra jogging bottoms) and then I layer as much as possible.

I wear these

very, very warm and pretty cheap. I sewed an elastic strap to go under each foot to stop them riding up when I put my waders on.
