Poncho for Boat fishing

Post by Jason Skilton » Thu Aug 02 2018 11:20

After a recommendation for a good poncho for boat fishing.

Needs to be one that I can actually wear, cast in and also isn't to constrictive around the neck.

Get an ex Mil. model.
I had one for many years, made from really tough nylon, could keep a rifle and scope well clear of the wet stuff and double as a basha if regd.
Dont have it now,I gave it to another angler in another country.

I bought one from aldi a few years ago and thought it was adequate, then I got caught out in a torrential, drawn out storm a few weeks ago and stayed bone dry, I now think its great. Don't forget to put it over the backrest of your chair if bank fishing.

Some other options here

I find they are a royal pain in the a**e when its windy, decent set of PROPER waterproofs is a better bet.

Pretty good alternative for bank fishing short sessions though for when that unexpected shower comes over.
