Men’s fashion trends are as volatile as those for women but style can never go out of fashion. And who said you can’t look stylish while doing your job or spending quality time outdoors, practicing your favorite activities?

For many years now, people have had this misconception that sports clothes are more like protection costumes and that style isn’t a criterion you need to base your purchase on. However, apart from their protective role, clothes can also be fun and stylish, so here are some style tips to help you achieve that perfect look, even when you’re going on a fishing trip.

Cable knit


Cable knit cardigans and jumpers represent a perfectly stylish way to cover yourself in the cold early mornings when you go out fishing or kayaking. They are thick enough to keep you warm and they are also extremely versatile. You can wear them with pretty much anything, including fishing waders, and they will still look masculine, fresh, and cool.

Opt for regular fits and keep the color line neutral as much as possible – tones of ecru, navy, green, grey, cream, and even black or brown are timeless and go with everything.

Pea coats

Although mainly linked to sailing rather than fishing, pea coats are still masculine and timeless. They are perfect for a fishing trip in early spring or late fall when temperatures aren’t too high, especially in the morning and at dush. The double-breasted pea coats are usually made of waterproof, lightweight fabrics and come with a hood in case the weather gets picky.

You’ll find plenty of suitable choices online, especially in the nautical color palette – navy, light blue, light brown, and cream.

If you’re feeling bold and confident, you can also opt for a sailing jacket in strong shades like yellow, green, blue or orange, that will certainly make you stand out in the crowd.

In fact, wearing a jacket in a strong color could prove beneficial, especially if you want your boat or kayak to be seen from a distance by other boats or people on the shore. And, since safety is what matters the most, make sure to also check this review from fisherpants.com for more options on your boat.

Fishing pants


Although not mandatory when you don’t spend more than a few hours on the water fishing, special fishing pants could prove a great addition to your wardrobe. They are also made of lightweight materials and are waterproof, meaning they will keep your skin cool and dry throughout the day.

Some of them come with an insulating layer underneath to maintain the perfect body temperature during the colder days, so make sure to opt for a pair according to the season and your needs. The good thing is that there are also many styles available so it will be pretty easy to stay fashionable, comfortable, and safe at the same time.

Fishing pants have become quite a fashion statement in the past few years, and this is why brands try to come up with innovative designs, colors, and patterns. The camouflage prints can be a great choice as long as you keep the rest of your clothes in neutral beige and green shades.

If you’re not a fan of the baggy fishing pants, you can choose a regular pair of chinos or slim pants that allow maximum freedom of movement to your legs. Since jeans are rather rigid, we don’t recommend them to be worn on a fishing trip or while you’re out with your boat or kayak.

If the weather is really warm and sunny, you can also opt for a regular pair of swim shorts, as long as you don’t forget the sunscreen and insect repellents.
