Opening of the fishing season, preparing and equipping for it

Opening of the fishing season, preparing and equipping for it

Fishing season 2023 is just around the corner, and for all anglers, it's always the date for a return to the tranquility of the river, the serenity of the lake, or even communion with nature. 

Have you put your flies away, mounted your leaders and sharpened your hooks? We hope you're ready, so we're going to tell you all about the best fishing equipment for confident fishing in 2023! Because, yes, good fishing can only be achieved with equipment you can trust.


All your gear with you

Complementing or replacing the fishing vest, the chestpack should have a strong, waterproof fabric, a large pocket for your tackle box and a smaller pocket for your flies. The neck strap should be reinforced to prevent chafing and have a hook for your landing net. The chest pack backpack is the perfect ally during your session, so you don't have to worry about your gear.

When it comes to transporting your fishing equipment, everything depends on your destination! Going on a fishing trip? We recommend our new Cargo bag and our waterproof Taïga bag. Thanks to their large capacities, you'll never be short of space.

Need a lighter, more practical bag? We offer several waterproof fishing bags. The fishing bag is totally modular. What a pleasure to be able to compartmentalize your bag according to what you're carrying.
If it's water you're most afraid of, then you'll need a waterproof bag. Rest assured, you can trust your equipment! With the 50L waterproof duffle bag, you can carry all your gear, whether by the river or on a boat. With the waterproof backpack, you'll be able to carry all your gear on any terrain without taking up too much space, thanks to its small size.


Tired of slipping and sliding?

Whether on seaweed or smooth rocks, slips are all too regular and can be very dangerous. That's why you shouldn't neglect the choice of a good pair of fishing shoes. Your wading shoes need to be sturdy, as they'll be put through their paces, and have a very good grip. 

Our wading shoesdesigned with Michelin, offer good grip without the use of felt, which is dangerous for rivers and may be banned in coming years.

For the most vicious terrain, we also offer nails and a non-slip net, which is added to the shoe.


Stay dry with waders

When the fishing season opens, many people ask how to choose the right waders. They're one of the most important pieces of fishing equipment. At Field&Fish, we test all our waders to the highest standards. 

The choice of waders depends on the type of wading you intend to do. If you're looking for soft, breathable waders that combine fishing comfort with long walks, choose ultra sonic waders, cut from a 4-layer fabric with excellent abrasion resistance.

For those who spend long hours in the water and are looking for crowded places off the beaten track, opt for the expert model with its 5-layer fabric, which is less breathable.

In terms of durability, these two products will give you the same level of satisfaction. Both products can be transformed into pants thanks to a clever system of suspenders.

If you can't find what you're looking for in our range of sizes, we can make you a custom 4-layer wader. In fact, we're the only company in Europe to offer this service, at a price that defies the competition's standard waders.


Protecting yourself from early-season bad weather

Field And Fish has the gear you need, from head to toe! Certain items of clothing are essential for a good opening.

The cap is a must-have piece of fishing equipment. It protects the face from the sun and improves the angler's visibility. Accompanied by a pair of glasses, polarized if possible, they will enable you to identify fish whatever the weather.

To protect you from the elements, we recommend that you wear warm, breathable fishing clothes. 

The fishing parka will protect you from the weather outside, and allow you to easily carry the fishing gear you need. To keep the heat in, you don't need a warm coat - you need a lightweight, waterproof, breathable and functional jacket!


Field And Fish wishes you a great opening and fishing season!

The whole team wishes you an excellent opening! Don't forget to make the most of it. If you get the chance, don't hesitate to send us your fishing, nature or catch photos! We look forward to supporting you throughout the season by equipping you.
