My brother and I fish March through to October on the east and west coast Scotland. Think four seasons and you learn that adaptability is the way to go.
I'm not at the dry suit stage yet, but I can see the attraction. We're still wearing XC Offshore suits, waterproof jackets and hi-fit trousers. We layer up, so neck warmers, padded shirts, Craghopper trousers, woollen hat and socks. We carry over-trousers for when the going gets tough. Spare fleeces, and t-shirts are a must.
If it gets warm, then the jackets come off. The hi-fit trousers are very comfortable, especially with life-jackets on.
Is that with or without VAT?
