Winter Camping Clothes

Here are a few of the clothing items I think are essential for winter camping. While I am a big fan of “miracle fibers” (read that: Gore-Tex and fleece), there is a lot to be said for the old standards, like wool and even, to some extent, leather and cotton.

Let’s talk about the cotton for a second, since I can hear some of you laughing already. Any experienced backpacker/climber/outdoorsman knows that cotton is a useless fabric in most situations. As the old maxim says, “cotton kills”… and that’s certainly true in temperatures near and above freezing . However, in deep cold conditions — the real FUN stuff — cotton makes a useful, breathable outer layer. Then again, I wouldn’t take it mountaineering: if you get it sweaty (wet) it’s a problem, and its insulating properties are zero. So while its value is limited — most importantly, don’t use it for insulation (chamois shirts and cotton socks are out) — it may have a place on your pulk or toboggan.

Winter Camping Gear – The Ten Essentials

The number-one essential is a water bottle/blivet/canteen. Assuming you’ve already got that, we can proceed.

Don’t go anywhere, anytime, in any season, without the Ten Big Ones. Bring them on every 3-hour dayhike. Put them under your pillow at night. Live with them. Learn them. Love them.

Make sure you learn how to use all the different parts in a controlled situation, before all your carefully-laid plans have gone south. Necessity may be the mother of invention – and desperation must certainly be the grandaddy – but trying to learn in an emergency situation is a recipe for disaster.

(NB – there are many different versions of the ten essentials; these are what I personally would not get out of bed without.)

So, without further ado, I present to you…

How to Choose A Spinning Rod

Spinning is a very important step for the novice spinner. But the variety of spinning tackle is impressive and very confusing to a young angler. Different length, structure, spinning class — so many characteristics that sometimes even the most experienced spinner, not immediately able to make a choice. Indeed, the choice of spinning depends on what fish you plan to catch, even probably not, from what bait you will be using.

Good spinning you will feel like your own hand, it is easy to notice the strike and even touch the bait to the bottom. Fishing quality spinning reel brings the most pleasure from fishing.
