If you’re standing on the shore right next to your tackle box and only going out in the chilly weather one or two times during a season, you may not need a fishing jackets for your outdoors sports. However, if you hear the fish calling you out to the river or lake on many misty mornings or when the temperature dips below comfortable, a dedicated fishing jacket is the best way to find true use and comfort on your journeys with a rod and reel.
First of all, a fishing jacket should be waterproof or at least water resistant. This might also be called weather resistant. Since you are working with wet gear near the water, you do not want splashes or slips to end up soaking you and freezing you for the rest of the day. Choose sturdy fabric such as treated twill or duck.

A fishing jacket should be relatively short such as to the waist or the hip, especially if you will be wearing it with waders and actually getting in the water to land your fish sometimes. Gathered bottom and sleeves are ideal so nothing on the fishing jacket gets in the way of casting.
Finally, a fishing jacket should have plenty of large and small pockets to carry everything you need to take care of your rod and reel and land the fish you want. These things include extra line, lures or bait boxes, knife, gloves and a small hook box as well. The right fishing jacket can make a fishing trip that much more fun.
