Fleece-Lined UnderWader Pants
Find cool-weather comfort to get the most out of your fall fly fishing

Fleece-Lined UnderWader PantsSome of my favorite fishing happens late in the season. Maybe it’s the crisp air, or maybe it’s the knowledge that time is running short, that every cast counts. But I’m not one to let cooler temperatures—air or water—slow me down. If you’re like me, you want to make the most of late-season opportunities while staying warm and comfortable, even during long days on stream.

The trick to fall fishing is to outfit yourself for changing conditions. Mornings that start out downright frosty often take a turn for the warmer as the sun works its way higher in the sky. Then, in the afternoon, temperatures begin to drop again. Getting out of the water to add or remove layers beneath your waders to accommodate changing conditions only serves to break your concentration, taking you away from what’s really important: the year’s final chances to fly fish.

The solution is simple: just pull on a pair of Fleece-Lined UnderWader Pants. The lightweight nylon shell with its gently tapered leg makes getting into your favorite waders a breeze. The brushed microfleece lining insulates without unnecessary bulk, so you can move freely in the water and while scrambling along the shore, and does an excellent job of wicking perspiration away from your skin when daytime temperatures climb. Plus, the nylon outer layer’s quick-drying properties ensure you’ll stay comfortable should any stray water find its way past your waders.

The peachskin-soft khaki-colored exterior and full complement of pockets gives the UnderWaders a casual look that you can wear from streamside straight to dinner—although I’d recommend taking your waders off first.

Get the most from late-season fishing with a warm pair of insulated UnderWader Pants that won’t restrict your freedom of movement while you’re fishing and won’t cramp your style when the day’s fishing is done.
