Women's Guide on What to Wear While Fishing

I’ve learned I’ll enjoy my time on the water and spend more time on it if I’m: Protected from the sun Comfortable Dry

Author: Jenny Anderson, @girlof10000lakes

I’ll be the first to tell you it doesn’t really matter what you wear in order to catch fish. The “right clothes” should never keep you from enjoying the outdoors. But through the years, I’ve learned I’ll enjoy my time on the water and spend more time on it if I’m:

  1. Protected from the sun
  2. Comfortable
  3. Dry

Extra bonus if what I’m wearing fits well and is stylish. Whoever said fishing can’t be functional and fashionable?

DSG Outerwear is a Wisconsin-based outdoor apparel company that makes gear for women by women. I think that’s what sets them apart from other fishing apparel brands, especially when I’m looking for the features I mentioned above. They design everything with the woman angler of all sizes in mind. That’s why I’m proud to partner with them for the third season in a row as a pro-staff on their ice fishing team and second season on their open water fishing team.

Breathable UPF 50+ Fishing Shirt

My two favorite shirts at the moment are DSG’s Chloe Hooded Sun Shirt (pictured above) and Charli Fishing Shirt. I especially love the fit with both shirts coming in sizes XXS to 4XL. DSG does a great job in creating clothes that fits women of all body types. It has been nearly impossible to find a shirt that comes in XXS so to finally find a functional, fashionable and fitting shirt while on the water is a big deal for me.

These shirts provide sun protection with UPF 50+, the highest rating on the ultraviolet protection factor scale. Another functional component? The fabrics wick sweat which helps keep me dry on sweltering hot summer days.

The Chloe has a hood for additional sun and wind protection, a removable neck gaiter and kangaroo pocket. I’ve used the neck gaiter for both sun and wind protection while cruising on the fishing boat. The Charli has mesh underarm panels for added ventilation, plus thumbholes to extend the fabric over the back of my hand for extra sun protection when casting and reeling. I love the patterns on the Charli (pictured below). It works for freshwater and saltwater-lovers alike!

True Fishing Shorts

Say hello to my favorite! I wear the Jolene Dock Shorts (pictured above) to enjoy public dock fishing because it truly makes fishing accessible for people who don’t own boats or have access to lakes and rivers. The Jolene Dock Shorts shorts are true fishing shorts. They were designed with the woman angler in mind. It’s packed with all the fishing features:

  • Pockets! Two front and two back.
  • Tool loops for different tools like pliers and a line cutter
  • UPF 50+ sun protection
  • Fabric made with mechanical stretch ripstop (I haven’t got any hooks stuck in this yet!)
