I have one of these https://www.fishtec.co.uk/buy.cfm/un.../40/yes/111758 & now with Airflo's reduction to £15, has to be well worth having a punt.

When it's really cold:

Merlino wool long johns, cords and a scierra fleece bib and brace.

Footwise a pair of merlino wool socks with heat holder socks over the top and neoprene under wader boot sock.

Active wear underlayer top, cotton polar neck and fleece or wool top/jumper under a wind stopper jacket and rain wading jacket if required.

A wool hat and neoprene fingerless gloves finishes it off.

And heated seats are a godsend when you get back to the car

I have been using a pair of down pants , expensive at 140 pounds , but they keep me warm as toast , merino long johns and fleece joggers are fine for slightly warmer weather , for the rest its a merino base layer , fleece or primaloft jumpers , socks again merino ,mixed with other materials .

Simms hats , cheap gloves that cost about 7 pounds , I am not shy when it comes to decent clothing for river fishing , bar the gloves .

A Simms (armless ) one piece over my pants and a tee shirt . Then an Orvis grid fleece (or polartec ) zip neck polo. My ordinary walking trousers and merino mountain socks . A Patagonia nano puff jacket ( must look for a new one soon 5 years of hammer worn as layer for everything) . Wading jacket as necessary and as Iím follicaly challenged a variety of headwear, from a £2 thinsulate burglar cap from the garage to a grey wool Tilley with ear flaps

The problems is if you're waist deep in water and your feet and legs get cold, it can get dangerous.

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.
