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.

No matter which way you look at it Ben, your previous post was 'at best' condescending, 'at worst' down right insulting towards Grant.
He deserves better than that, especially from you !

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

As far as I know lifejackets should be worn over the top of all clothing, :wink:
