A jacket designed specifically for fishing can be a great choice if you want to make sure that you are fully protected from the conditions. This one is a wading jacket and it is breathable but waterproof. It has 2 ply fabric with taped and sealed seams for full waterproofing. It has a hood that can be stowed away when not needed and neoprene cuffs that can be tightened so the wrists stay warm and dry. There are 7 zippered pockets so they can be used to store all sorts of things. There is also a handy pocket in the back and D rings on the front to attach things to.
