Style takes a backseat when you’re wearing these dumb-looking fishing clothing items.

If you sit back and take a look at what you are wearing while fishing you will see that style is not a top priority. We are here to catch fish not look good. Here are seven dumb-looking fishing clothing items that we wear to stay comfortable on the water. The fish don’t care what you look like.

Buffs

You may look like someone who just robbed a bank or maybe some type of ninja. Either way, they are not as stylish as they are good for protecting your skin. They do help keep you from sunburn, but do not look cool.

Sun Hats

This goes along with the “fish don’t care what you wear” theme. Those big hats look like what your grandma wears while she is in the garden. They protect your ears, back of your neck and help you stay protected from the sun.

Raingear

Again, designed strictly for purpose, raingear is bulky and often cumbersome. Staying dry is more important than how you look.

Life Jackets

They can literally save your life, but big bulky life jackets are not a fashion statement. The suspender versions are a little better and a must while boating.

Fishing Jerseys

Hey, you may need to represent your sponsors, but jerseys are not the most stylish things you could wear. They do a good job showing off your favorite brands but may double as a clown costume.

Fly-Fishing Vests

You need somewhere to hold all of those pliers and gadgets. They also make a handy place to store flies right at your fingertips. They do, however, lack on the style side.

Fitover Sunglasses

Sunglasses can be very stylish. Fitover sunglasses are not. I personally wear them and can be seen rocking them in the picture above, so I’m not making fun of people for wearing glassesjust pointing it out.
