    Default Apparel

    Hi Steve,
    Mines Orvis, I like the quality and price. Don't seem to have the trouble others seem to suffer with more expensive brands, leaks etc. So won't be changing any time soon.

    Fawcetts know how many beans make five when buying clothing / waders over the phone.
    Not once have I had to return anything on a sizing issue.
    Prices are usually very competitive.

    S J Fawcetts Online Country Store-Gunsmith, Fishing Tackle and Country Clothing.

    Ron Sutherland is another good bet.
    Knows his stuff.

    DONT MISS OUT!! We are running a BUY 3 GET 1 FREE on all flies right through the spring. Every 3 flies you buy, we add one free based on your order choice, or tell us which ones you want. - The Helmsdale Tackle Company Ltd

    Depends what you are after, 'country clothing' or outdoor clothing.
    For me its outdoor clothing and hill walking shops every time. If its good enough to keep you warm and dry at 3000ft then it will work just fine on a river bank.

    Default Orvis Is Tops

    Definitely Orvis at sale time.
    Initially expensive, at sales you can really do a deal.
    Quality always excellent and customer service superb.
    2nd for me is John Norris , good deals at times and very personal.
    3rd place goes to the local emporium , Angling Active.
    Respect My Authorita!!

    John norris, for shooting clothing as well.
    Foxons St. asaph
    Any of the outdoor shops selling mountain lite gear and berghaus.

    Though to be fair not a lot fits me very well, so I'm confined to musto, schoffell, le chemaux, low alpine, aigle, sims, guideline all in XXXL or more.....
