I wear drab, earth-tone colors or camo. And I took it one step further: I bought an olive colored fly line for my new 6 1/2' 3 weight rod. Close fishing for brookies in small mountain streams. Will it make a difference? We'll see.

I'm not super picky about what kinda clothes I wear on the water. I have two designated fishing shirts that are olive and tan. In the summer, I just try to grab a t-shirt that seems reasonable. Brown, green, and gray usually, but I'm not afraid to wear a bright red or orange shirt on the water.

most times i wear camo not sure if it helps. but most of my clothing for cold and wet is from hunting so its camo. In warm weather i wear a dark green or blue shirt. My warm weather waders are greenish color and my cold weather waders are camo.

Yes I did. Can't wait to try it out.

I feel most anglers believe that bright colors are a no-no.

What colors do you believe work best for fishing as far as clothing? Tan, green, blue or camo?

I am not overly concerned but try not to wear bright colors and don’t go overboard- unless in Florida. You?



For me chosing to wear stealthy colths in the field is all part of the process of getting into a state of mind that is condusive to good trout fishing. Even if clothing color did not matter, in the over all scheming process that goes into catching a trout, I would rather not fish in bright orange cloths.

Dark green.

outsider, how about a report on the new flyline when you try it out? I think you will like it. I have that line in 2,3 and 4 weights and love it.

It's a very nice line, IMO. I've been fishing them exclusively in WI and Iowa for the past 3 years or so. The price is right and I like to support Cortland, which I would imagine is in a fight for its life now with Rio, SA, Sage and everybody else and their left-handed brother in law in the fly line business. I don't know that the level tip makes that much of a difference, but it is a nice casting line, on all my rods anyway, which are all older, slower graphite.

The only down side I've found to them is that unless you keep right after them maintenance-wise, they start to crack and check fairly soon for what I've generally seen from Cortland lines, with the exception of the 444SL's. But, on the other hand, I'm tough on lines. I walk on them and seldom clean them and accordingly, I usually need a new one every season. The old peach 444's seemed to stand up to this and I could get 2 seasons out of them with a little care. But the Clear Creek seems to have a lifespan more like the 444SL's, somewhat shorter.

YMMV, of course..

There are a few places I've fished which require that blaze orange be worn. Though I'd rather spook a bunch of brookies than be mistaken for a deer, I've wondered if that bright shade of color spooks the fish, all other things being equal. What do you guys think? (EDIT: I wear a blaze orange ball cap where/when needed)

P.S. : I wear mostly grays and shades of green/olive when I fish.

Yea, for the most part I share the same thoughts.

Mostly I wear either a lighter green or a darker green shirt and a neutral colored hat. This year I might switch to a camo hat- if only because my current and favorite LJRA hat is getting pretty ratty and I actually own a camo hat already.

Have worn brighter colored shirts in Florida or when I have been fortunate enough to float fish.

Thought for sure someone was gonna mention a bandana.

"outsider, how about a report on the new flyline when you try it out? I think you will like it. I have that line in 2,3 and 4 weights and love it."

It will be a while untill I fish it - probably a month. But I will report it. As soon as the back yard dries out I'll do some practice casts with it.

I don't understand why lines don't last for some people. I clean my lines every time I use one by running the line through a soft tissue and then I dress it. And I do take care of them when I fish. Honesty, I still use lines that are 30 years old.

Cammo is the thing to wear if you want to blend in. I laugh every time i see an angler with a white hat on or bright blue shirt , do you think the fish are blind? Earthtones are for Orvis folks heh

Well,if we are going to sneak up on them,sight unseen,wouldn't you need to wear reversible waders,hats,shirts,face paint?
A cameo outfit would be pretty obvious against a skyline and a bright blue or gray getup would stand out against a green or fall colored background.
Maybe a roll down thing on the hat?
I guess RLeeps idea is better.
