Clothing guide for a fishing trip @Predatorguiding fishing Lodge

Planning a fishing trip to the beautiful landscapes of Ireland?

Apart from your fishing tackle, choosing the right clothing is crucial to ensure a comfortable and enjoyable experience.

Ireland's weather can be unpredictable, so it's essential to be prepared for a mix of sunshine, rain, and cool breezes. In this guide, we'll walk you through the must-have clothes for your fishing adventure with Predatorguiding in Ireland.

Waterproof Outerwear:

The Irish weather is notorious for its sudden rain showers. Invest in high-quality waterproof jackets and pants, preferably bib’s, to keep yourself dry during unexpected downpours or long lasting heavy rain. Look for breathable materials to prevent overheating while providing effective protection against rain and wind.

We have had the best experiences with suits made from Gore-Tex material. These keep you dry for more than 8 hours, even in heavy, persistent rain.


Layered Clothing:

Ireland's climate can be quite changeable, so layering is key. Bring thermal base layers to keep you warm, especially during early mornings or late evenings. A comfortable mid-layer fleece or soft-shell jacket adds insulation, and a waterproof outer layer provides the necessary protection against wind and heavy rain.



Waterproof fishing boots are a must to stay dry during a fishing day. Opt for boots with good traction to prevent slipping on slippery surfaces and ones that offer a high comfort. We are using mostly wellies that are just a bit higher then the ankle and if you prefer to fish in sneakers bring a pair on board and simply change if necessary. Hiking boots or shoes with metal straps are not very suitable, as the soles become wedged on the boat carpet and damage it. The lugs can get caught very quickly and cause damage to the fish or equipment. We therefore advise to use another typ of shoe.


Sun Protection:

Yes, even in Ireland you should think about it and sometimes we have sun too. Even if not everyone wants to believe it.

A cap and sunglasses not only protect you from the sun but are also a good protection against attacking lures. Polarized glasses are recommended so that you can see fish close to the boat.



A pair of waterproof and insulated gloves will keep your hands warm and dry, especially during colder seasons. Make sure that the gloves are not too bulky and obstruct your fishing.

Most of the time, it is not too cold and the gloves only need to be used when we change the fishing spots.


By packing the right clothing for your fishing trip in Ireland, you'll be better equipped to handle the varying weather conditions and fully enjoy the stunning natural beauty the country has to offer. Remember to check the weather forecast before your trip and adjust your clothing choices accordingly for a comfortable and memorable fishing experience at the Predatorguiding Fishing Lodge
