What’s Your Favorite Fishing Camo Pattern?

Fishing Camo Patterns | Blue Camo for any Situation

When it comes to the fishing world, most people don’t associate camouflage clothing with it. They automatically think of hunting and fall. And while that makes more sense on the surface, there’s no reason you can’t wear a camouflage fishing shirt if you want to, right? But let’s take it a step further. Since fishing camo doesn’t have to be constrained to a few natural colors to blend in, it can be bold and bright. Don’t settle with the old brown and green sweatshirt you’d wear to the deer stand – use a Lifestyle Camo® pattern like Undertow® or Serenity™ to really stand out. And while there are many fishing camo patterns out there, here’s why these two camo patterns, in particular, are perfect for just about any kind of fishing you can think of.

What Makes Undertow® and Serenity™ Good Fishing Camo Patterns? 

Let’s just state the obvious: Undertow® and Serenity™ are blue camouflages and the water you’re fishing on is also likely some shade of blue. Does there really need to be any other reason to use it? Well, here are a few. In addition to the multiple hues of blue in the patterns, there is a network of branches that resemble flooded timber or an ocean bottom. And as we mentioned, these camo patterns are not typical hunting camo with oak leaves and pine branches. It’s really unlike anything you’ve seen when it comes to camo patterns. Beyond that, we have clothing styles and types to suit each person’s taste and the specific weather conditions you’ll face on the water.

Different Fishing Scenarios 

Let’s look at several different types of fishing that vary across several geographies and the species you’re fishing for. We think you’ll agree that Undertow® or Serenity™ are the best fishing camo patterns out there, no matter where you are or what you like to fish for.

Ice Fishing 

Since it is winter, let’s start with ice fishing as an example. Whether you choose to fish on a small pond, a huge reservoir, or a slowly- moving river, ice fishing is a welcomed activity during the long winter across the northern half of the country. Sure, there’s no blue-colored open water to match your fishing camouflage, but the white snow and dark-colored hard water do make your blue shirt look even brighter and bolder. And while it’s not related to the fishing camo pattern itself, the Moon Shine Camo® full camo hoodie is made of 100% polyester to help wick sweat away when you’re staying mobile. You can easily layer your clothing too, which ultimately keeps you warmer for longer.


On a summer night, there’s not much that can beat sitting on a river bank with a fire going, some brats cooking over it, and a couple lines in the water as you wait for a hungry catfish to find your baited hook. In the darkness of the night, the Undertow® or Serenity™ patterns take on a darker shade of blue that actually blends into the moonlight fairly well. The crisscrossing branches on the pattern also resemble the perfect hiding place for a catfish in a murky river. The downside to catfishing in the summer is that it can be hard dealing with the heat and humidity. But donning the full camo short sleeve shirt will help you stay cool since its lightweight, performance construction will wick away your sweat.

Ocean Fishing 

There’s no doubt about it – the bold and bright shades of blue in the ocean are a perfect match for the Undertow® and Serenity™ patterns. This category of fishing doesn’t need a whole lot of explanation, does it? But in addition, the full camo long sleeve shirt is perfect for long days in the coastal sun. Punishing UV rays can cause some really bad sunburn unless you’re prepared. Wearing a typical cotton long sleeve fishing shirt would get far too hot in those conditions and you’d be a sweaty mess in no time. The Moon Shine Camo® long sleeve shirt is constructed of viscose (almost silk-like) and spandex, which will wick your sweat away and help you feel cooler. Wearing a long sleeve shirt to protect your arms while also staying cool is a win-win.

Kayak/Canoe Fishing 

Fishing from a kayak or canoe is a lot of fun. It puts you down near the water’s edge and closer to the fishing action. But similar to the ocean fishing, sitting in a boat surrounded by the water with the sun reflecting back onto you can cause sunburn. Do your fishing shirts keep you covered and also keep you cool? Our lightweight performance shirts ensure you stay comfortable on the water. Or you can always keep some swimwear on to cool off in the water once in a while. Just make sure you know how to get back into your kayak or canoe or find a nice sandbar to relax for a while.

Bass Fishing 

Whether you prefer fishing for huge “bucketmouth” bass from down south or big “bronzebacks” from up north, bass fishing is a passion for many – you’re probably familiar with the Bassmaster tournaments, right? It doesn’t matter if you’re tucked into a shallow and weedy bay somewhere or fishing rocky bottoms, the Undertow® and Serinity™ fishing camo is always a good look. We offer performance shirts for hot weather or hoodies, vests, and windbreakers for colder conditions. The next time you grab a bass by the lip and hoist it for a picture, make sure you’re wearing your favorite fishing camo pattern.



Finally, there’s the wildly popular crossover hunting-fishing sport called bowfishing. If you haven’t tried it, you definitely need to make friends with someone who does because it’s a really good time. When you’re drifting around looking for big carp to arrow, make sure you’re wearing polarized sunglasses and a hat to keep the sun out of your eyes. These will both help you to see under the water surface better, which can obviously help you shoot well too. The Undertow® or Serenity™ mesh hat will also keep your head cooler than a traditional baseball cap. That’s always critical since the summer sun can be punishing!


Are you convinced yet about this fishing camo? Do you think you’re ready to throw those old camo fishing shirts out and pick up some new Undertow® or Serenity™ gear?


New Youth Camo Clothing That Kids Actually Wear!

New and Improved Youth Camo Clothing Line from Moon Shine Camo®

 The outdoor lifestyle flows throughout your family. From your spouse, your kids and your relatives, the outdoor lifestyle transcends generations. This passion multiples with your kids who want to follow in your footsteps. It starts out with them putting on your camo hat then you see them walking around in your camo hoodie. Why not let them express their outdoor lifestyle in their own youth camo clothing line?

Moon Shine Camo® has a new and improved youth camo clothing line that meets this need! Youth clothing has to have several key features to function well with kids. All of which can be found in our new youth camo clothing. 

  •  Tagless – Nobody wants an itchy tag, especially kids. Comfort is a top priority and an inconvenient tag is the fastest way to get youth hunting apparel tossed back into the closet. All camo clothing for kids from Moon Shine Camo® features a tagless design. 
  •  Cool Colors – Kids want to express themselves. Drab traditional camo is not appealing to kids. Youth camo clothing has to be bold and unique but also function well outdoors. New colors like Toxic® and Muddy Girl® in kids clothing styles definitely hold up to the coolness standard. 
  •  Functional – The material in youth clothing makes a big difference. It should be polyester or a polyester blend to wick sweat and provide maximum comfort when active outside. 

In addition, youth camo clothing has to make sense from the parent’s perspective. Kids go through clothes quickly. They outgrow clothes faster than you can buy them. Also, being active outdoors means they are eventually going to get rips and tears in most of their outdoor clothing. So to make sense, camo clothing for kids has to hold up well and be available in a wide range of sizes.  

If you are looking for toddler camo clothing, look no further than the new XS size. This size is equivalent to a 3T, which is perfect for those little guys and girls looking to sport some lifestyle camo. Kids clothing styles now come in sizes from XS to XL to fit every growth spurt along the way.  

Another addition to the youth camo clothing line is the zipper hoodie. Based on the traditional camo hoodie for kids, the zipper hoodie offers additional functionality to wear open on warmer winter days and easier on-off. The girl’s styles feature an eye-popping sequin design with a splash of camo inside the hood. It is a perfect combination of coolness and functionality for any outdoor adventure.

The most important aspect is to let your kids have fun with camo clothing. Camouflage clothing is a representation of their lifestyle. One that is surrounded by the outdoors and everything it has to offer. Having youth clothing that represents that lifestyle only helps to promote it further with your kids. 

To conclude, the new youth camo clothing line from Moon Shine Camo® will go beyond satisfying any youngster. It is functional, comfortable and most importantly cool looking. Each style is designed to fit your kid’s outdoor lifestyle as they grow in your footsteps.

Things To Think About When Shopping For Summer Clothing

Considerations When Choosing Your Summer Outdoor Clothing


Shorts and a tee, right? Most people think summer outdoor clothing choices are easy to make. It is hot and you are likely doing something active outside so shorts and a t-shirt will suffice. However, dressing for summer is much more complicated than that. There are several considerations to think about when choosing your summer clothing for outdoor activities.


The main point to consider is what activities are you planning to be doing outside, in what sometimes can be extreme heat. This is when your outdoor clothing choices impact you the most. For example, you want to choose lightweight outdoor clothing if you are planning a summer hike or in contrast, if you are heading to the lake for some fishing and swimming you would want to have your camo bikinis and swimwear. Regardless of what you are planning this summer, there are several tips when it comes choosing outdoor apparel for active lifestyles in the summer.


Summer Outdoor Clothing Tips


The two most important factors in summer clothing choices are staying cool and protecting yourself from sun exposure. In almost every summer outdoor activity, these two factors are prevalent and can make or break your experience. As summer approaches in full force across the country, here are a few clothing tips to beat the heat and make the most out of every summer adventure.

Material Matters


Outdoor clothing starts with the material it is made from. Different activities require different kinds of clothing made from different materials. For instance, answering the question “what do you wear to go hiking?” has a much different answer than if instead of hiking it is hanging out with a few buddies around a campfire. Hiking will require more lightweight, breathable clothing while you are usually safe with a camo t-shirt and shorts for sitting around the campfire.


Cotton will hold moisture so activities, where you will be sweating a lot, means cotton clothing will stick to your skin and reduce the cooling benefits of your sweat leading to overheating. Moisture wicking fabrics will keep you dry and allow sweat to work, thus keeping you cooler and reducing the potential for heat-related illnesses. The material in summer outdoor apparel also can come with built-in benefits like sun protection. These fabrics provide an Ultraviolet Protection Factor (UPF) that blocks UV rays to protect your skin from the sun but also allows heat to escape to keep you cool.


Color is More Than a Fashion Statement


Adding Lifestyle Camo® to your summer wardrobe does more than just make a fashion statement. Second to only the material of your clothing, the color of outdoor clothing is the next important consideration. Darker colors absorb heat and lighter colors reflect it. All day sun and heat exposure should be matched with light colored clothing to keep you cool and reflect the sun’s heat, whereas darker colored clothing is more appropriate for cloudy summer days or evenings when temperatures fall.


Hats Are Important


Hats are usually thought of as more beneficial when it comes to cold weather outdoor clothing because most heat is lost through your head. However, the same principal holds true in the summer. Heat is being released through your head but when the temperatures are hot and not cold you do not want to trap heat in but rather release it. Hats are beneficial in summer as they are worn to reduce sun exposure around your head and neck and keep the sun out of your eyes. Choose one that is lightweight and breathable so that it does not trap the heat being released from your head.


Generally, the summer clothing tips above are transferable to most outdoor activities. Though, there are some activities that have specific clothing needs beyond these general tips. Let’s specifically discuss two popular summer outdoor activities and the types of outdoor apparel best suited for them.

Summer Hiking Clothing Tips


Hiking, even moderate hiking in the summer, is a strenuous activity that is going to work up a sweat. For that reason, you want hiking clothing that is loose fitting, lightweight, dries quickly and is light in color. These attributes will keep you cool as you perspire and protect you from the elements at the same time. Additionally, here are a few summer hiking clothing recommendations to keep you on the trail.


  • Wear not just any old hat but choose a wide brim hat to help reduce insects from around your head and protect you completely from the sun. One made from mesh or other lightweight fabric works best to keep your head cool.
  • Choose loose fitting and lightweight outdoor clothing to allow proper air circulation and freedom to move on the trail. The lighter the better as it breathes more and dries quickly either from sweat or the unfortunate stream accident or stray thunderstorm.


  • Lightweight boots and quality socks will make all the difference. Sore feet quickly ruin a hike and can be avoided with lightweight boots that breathe and are comfortable. Your boots do not matter if you have a bad pair of socks underneath them. Look for pairs with cooling properties and made with a majority of wool blends which will be durable, and have natural moisture wicking and antibacterial properties.


  • Pack outerwear just in case. Summer heat can pop up thunderstorms fast in the wilds and being wet, or soaked, could chill you fast especially near nightfall. Having a packable rain jacket as a standard part of your hiking equipment is a necessity no matter how hot or how confident you are you will not need it.



Fishing Clothing Tips for Summer


Not much is better than being on a lake or stream in the summer fishing. For summertime fishing, you should be wearing clothing that is comfortable and protects you from the sun. Unlike hiking, fishing is less strenuous and sun exposure rather than overheating usually becomes your biggest challenge.


  • Layer up with your summer clothing for fishing. Start with a light t-shirt then add a long sleeve UPF rated shirt to block the sun yet keep you cool. For pants, shorts work fine but pants work better. Again you want as little skin exposed to the sun as possible.


  • Stay concealed with good fishing camo patterns. Especially in shallow water when fishing or bowfishing, you want to blend in so fish do not see you. Forego the bright yellows and oranges but instead choose dull grays and blues and specifically designed fishing camo clothing.


  • Complete sun protection means gloves and a facemask. Anglers in the summer are typically already wearing a hat but few are wearing gloves and a facemask. These summer outdoor apparel accessories protect against reflective sunlight rays coming off the water.


To summarize, summer outdoor clothing is clearly much more than shorts and a t-shirt. Having the right summer clothing to go with the activity will ultimately make it more enjoyable and safer in the hot summer sun.

Water Camo | Fishing, Bowfishing, and Froggin’ Lifestyle Camo

Water Camo for your Fishing, Bowfishing, and Froggin’ Lifestyle

Summertime is fast approaching and that means one thing for serious outdoorsmen and women…it’s time to dust off those rods and bowfishing bows that have been tucked away throughout the winter and head to the water.  Fishing, bowfishing, and frogging in the summertime offers outdoor enthusiasts a perfect opportunity to get on the water and go after their favorite fish species, or hone their stealth abilities sneaking up on an unsuspecting bull frog.  Even better, it’s a perfect time to upgrade your equipment with a fishing camo and water camo pattern that shows your diehard passion for the outdoors.

Unlike traditional hunting where blending in is key, these aquatic outdoor pastimes allow an opportunity to express yourself with color beyond the standard brown, green, and tans of regular camo.  The bright marine blue Undertow™ water camo and the new Muddy Girl® Serenity Camo with turquoise and copper tones are excellent fishing camo patterns and water camo patterns to make a statement and be noticed.

About Moon Shine Camo Serenity Pattern







Whether you’re a laid back angler, fast paced bowfisher, frog grabber, or all three, there is a Moon Shine Camo® pattern to take your fishing camo clothing and equipment to the next level.


A love for fishing is almost universal.  The great thing about fishing is that almost anywhere in the country you are not far from a water source where you can drop a line, relax, and wait for dinner to bite.  Waiting for walleyes under frozen lakes in the north, to chasing drum in the southern marsh, there is never a shortage of opportunity to take advantage of the fishing across every state.

While most anglers prefer heading out to water by boat, the great thing about fishing is that as long as you have water, a pole, and some bait, you’re in business.  Another appealing plus many enjoy about fishing is that unlike most hunting, noise is not typically a factor in a successful day outdoors.  The social aspect of spending time with friends or family enjoying some good music and wetting a line is what makes fishing so perfect for summer time.


When out on the water it can get hot sitting under the sun all day.  When the biting is good you don’t want to have to call it quits because you can’t take the heat, but you also don’t want to be left with a nasty sunburn.  Preparing for this ahead of time can save you a major headache later on when you’ve made it out to your favorite fishing spot.  Sunblock, camo sunglasses, and a cooler wrapped in your favorite fishing camo filled with cold water and other beverages are essentials you’ll want to bring along.   You can also show off your favorite fishing camo and beat the heat by wearing your Undertow™ Camo long sleeve over Undertow™ Camo or Muddy Girl® Serenity camo swimwear.


Bowfishing is a rapidly expanding summertime activity enjoyed by hunters and fishermen and women alike.  No matter if you’re a waterfowl hunter, rifleman, bowhunter, or angler, bowfishing is an adrenaline inducing way to spend your day (or night) on the water. Combining rapid paced shots and the wide availability of species to shoot, bowfishing is growing immensely popular with hard core bowhunters as well as water lovers of all shooting levels.  For most bowfishers there are two bow options- you can rig up a regular hunting compound bow with a reel setup and call it a day, or purchase a bow designed exclusively for bowfishing use.

But do you have to be a true bowhunter to bowfish?  The answer is no, it isn’t vital to have a decked out airboat with wrap around LED lights to enjoy the sport.  All you really need to get started is the right bow and reel set up and a fishing license in most states.

Speaking of fishing license, it is important to know what species of fish are legally permissible to take while bowfishing.  For example, shooting redfish with a bow is legal in Louisiana but illegal in all other states.  One great fish to start with is also the most popular target for bowfishers – the carp.  This invasive fish can be found all over the country in ponds, lakes, and rivers.   While most people consider the carp to be a “trash fish”, some cultures consider the carp a delicacy.

It’s also important to consider dressing light and comfortable since bowfishing is not a passive sport, you will most likely be moving and shooting for hours at a time. The goal is to beat the heat, but also look good in your bowfishing camo which is where Undertow Camo athletic attire comes into play.  If day time bowfishing is more your style, you can be lethal with a bow and be ready to get wet with Undertow Camo® swimwear for men and camo bikinis for women.

The great thing about bowfishing is you shouldn’t expect to get bored shooting the same thing summer after summer since there are numerous opportunities to take aim at more common species such as carp and gar, but you can also go after the more elusive game species like stingrays, redfish, and sharks.

Another way to keep things interesting is to customize your equipment with bowfishing camo that shows you mean business and want to stand apart from basic camo patterns that are offered over and over again.  Moon Shine Camo is the answer for those serious about the bowfishing lifestyle and want a unique aquatic look to show off.   Whether you want to stand out at a tournament in your bowfishing camo wrapped boat or want to make sure your bowfishing bow is easily recognizable, hydrographic customization is your solution!  Adding bowfishing camo patterns like Undertow™ water camo and Muddy Girl® Serenity Camo will take your bowfishing gear to new levels.


Frogging (frog gigging, frog grabbing, frog hunting, or froggin’ if you’re from the south) is one of those special pursuits enjoyed best on a warm summer night on the water.  The art (using that word loosely) of taking the American bullfrog can vary from the use of a pronged frog gig, a long net, or just grabbing them by hand.  The only thing you really need is a good light source such as a q-beam or head lamp.

To catch a bullfrog, you will want to shine your light in the frog’s eyes so it won’t see you closing in.  Be careful not to move the light and keep it steady or he may get jumpy and take off.  Once you catch your frog you’ll want to place him in a basket or ice chest until you’re ready to clean them to eat.  Bullfrog legs make a fine meal when fried, but there are numerous ways to prepare them.

The popularity of frogging is in many ways due to the abundance of bullfrogs that can populate a river or pond bank, and it’s another excellent summertime activity where outdoorsmen and women can get together and jump in their boat for a night of fun.  It is also a great way to get the younger generation or people new to hunting and fishing into an outdoor lifestyle.

Because frogging is done on the water in swampy or marshy areas in the heat of the night you will want to wear clothing you don’t mind getting wet and possibly slimy.  Not only do you want to be prepared to get wet, you need to have a level of stealth and steadiness when sneaking up on the bull frogs.  What better way to feel prepared than sporting your favorite fishing camo pattern in Undertow Camo® or Muddy Girl Serenity Camo on your covert frogging mission.  With camo swimwear available in these fishing camo patterns you can go from bowfishing during the day to frogging at night with no change in between.

Summer Splashes and Night-time Catches

No matter if you’re a fishing addict ready to see that fish splash like crazy when it hits your bait or wanting to try your hand at frogging for the first time, the summer means longer days and plenty of opportunities to get out and enjoy your outdoor lifestyle.

Everything including your fishing rod, boat, ice chest, and truck can be wrapped or dipped with these camo patterns by Moon Shine Camo.  Never mix up your bowfishing bow with your buddies again, or even surprise a special someone by customizing their outdoor equipment with a camo pattern that shows their outdoor lifestyle off.

From camo bikinis to camo boat wraps in Undertow Camo, looking good on the water will be a breeze this summer.

Hiking Clothing for Late Winter and Early Spring

Staying Comfortable with Hiking Clothing

March is that special time of year where we can at least start to think about spring’s arrival. It would normally be dangerous to do so any sooner than now, but this strange winter of warmer-than-average temperature swings has got many people thinking about spring full blast right now. If you’ve been thinking about getting out to enjoy some spring-like weather yourself, you’re going to need the right spring hiking clothing first.


Recreational Opportunities This Spring

Depending on where you live, there are loads of great outdoor activities you can do this time of year. If there is enough ice left, there’s some fantastic ice fishing to be had in March, primarily because the weather is much nicer and the fish can be very aggressive. If you have access to a few maple trees in your yard or on some family hunting land, you could tap them to make your own maple syrup out of the sap. You could also scout some potential ambush spots for turkey hunting later in April. Of course, you could always get out for some more shed hunting opportunities while the antlers last. But one of the few outdoor activities that unite all of these is hiking.



Hiking might seem like it is just glorified walking, but that’s only partially true. There are actually lots of benefits that make it a very enjoyable way to spend a late winter or early spring day. First, it’s a good form of exercise. Hiking will often take you up and down hillsides, forcing you to bend, stoop, and stretch along the way. You’ll also usually be carrying a backpack, which increases the load you’re carrying. This is a phenomenal workout because it is so practical and translates over into hunting or everyday life so easily. Hiking also generally takes you into some beautiful and scenic areas. But the best part about hiking this time of year is getting out and enjoying the first glimpses of warm weather. You can hear the birds chirping away in delight and feel the warm breeze on your face as the last remnants of snow disappear. After a long winter spent mostly indoors, it’s a welcome change of pace. But you need to have the right hiking clothing to do it well.


Hiking Clothing Tips

In order for you to thoroughly enjoy a day of hiking, you’re going to need to take a few precautions first. The most important part of any outdoor recreation, especially in late winter or early spring, is to utilize performance clothing while you’re active. Performance clothes are designed to help your body regulate its temperature. It does that by wicking moisture (i.e., sweat) away from your skin and to the outside of your garment to evaporate. Why is that important? Think about two people: one falls in a near-frozen lake and struggles back out, while the other doesn’t fall in. Which person’s future looks kind of grim? Obviously the soaking wet person, because moisture steals us of our body heat much faster than if we were dry. While spring weather should generally mean warmer weather, sweat is a killer if it gets cold and should be avoided as much as possible. To help you get started, Moon Shine Camo® has hiking clothing for men, women, and children.


But to get the most out of these performance garments, you need to also use an outdoor clothing layering system. Start by keeping a snug performance base layer next to your skin, which will pull the sweat out and away. This layer should be constructed of fine merino wool or synthetic polyester as they make the best moisture-wicking clothes. Wool also keeps you warm when it gets wet and doesn’t collect odors, which makes it a good choice for cold weather hiking clothing. But if you’re using enough insulating layers (below), you can just as easily use a polyester shirt. The Harvest Moon camouflage® short sleeve shirt is a great option because it is soft, tagless, and constructed of moisture-wicking polyester.




The next hiking clothing layers should include insulation to keep you warm, whether in the form of wool, fleece, or synthetic polyester. But you should focus on having multiple light layers versus one lofty puffy garment. That way, you can adjust your hiking clothing as you warm up or cool down. Hiking is full of bursts of energy while on the trail followed by rests at scenic viewpoints. If you can’t add or remove your clothing layers, you will get too hot and sweaty to be comfortable the rest of your hike. Moon Shine Camo® has several polyester options that work great for insulating layers. Using a combination of the Harvest Moon lifestyle camo® performance hoodie and Protek vest, you can adjust your body temperature easily while on the trail.



Finally, you’ll need a hiking shell layer to keep the wind and rain away. You never know what conditions you’ll face out there on the trail (e.g., rain, snow, wind, etc.), so it’s best to be prepared. Carrying a light wind breaker or rain jacket is a good option because they don’t take up much space or weigh much, but they can quickly be added if the conditions deteriorate. As long as you stay dry with your performance clothes and have enough insulation layers, the shell layer will protect you from the weather.


While they don’t quite fit in the hiking clothing category, you’ll also obviously need a good pair of hiking boots if you’re going to have any fun while hiking. If your boots are too small, they will constrict your feet. If they’re too big, you’ll get blisters from all the rubbing and shifting. If they’re too heavy, your legs will get tired much faster. After finding a pair of boots that work for you, take time to break them in a little bit on shorter walks before you go on any huge treks or tackle elevation changes. This will also prevent blisters and help you pinpoint any trouble spots before they’re really put to the test.

Spring Hiking Tips

If you haven’t hiked much in the past, don’t try to become an expert in one day. After a winter spent indoors, we all have to build our hiking stamina back up a bit each spring. It takes time for our bodies to get back in the groove and build up the strength and endurance you need for hiking. So for the first few trips, take it easy. Plan on doing some training hikes through a local park that’s only slightly challenging for you, and then build up from there. As your hikes increase in length and difficulty, you might want to start bringing a backpack with. Not only can you pack snacks, water, hiking gear, and various layers of hiking clothing in it, but it also challenges you to build your physical strength too. Make sure to let family or friends know where you’re going, especially if it’s a really long or strenuous hike.




If you’ve been looking for a fun activity to keep you outdoors these last days of winter, look no further than hiking. It’s a great activity for the whole family to get involved as long as you have the right outdoor clothing. Plus, it has the side benefit of helping you train for other outdoor activities throughout the rest of the year.


Fishing Camo Patterns for All Your Fishing Gear

Fishing Camo Patterns for Those Who Stand Out


Just so we’re all clear from the start, this isn’t an article solely about specific fishing camo patterns that will actually hide you from the keen eyes of trout or other game fish. We’ll touch on that subject briefly, but we’re mostly talking about lifestyle camo patterns that will accentuate your fishing obsession in a bold way. When someone looks at you and your fishing gear, they won’t have any doubts about your priorities and hobbies. Whether you’re looking for fishing camo patterns for your fishing clothing, ATV, boat, or truck, there’s a perfect one for you.


Fishing Camo Patterns

As we mentioned, this article won’t dive into much detail about actual concealment camouflage. But if you’re looking for good options to stalk streambanks for wary trout, for example, Outshine™ and Harvest Moon™ are both superb. They offer natural, muted colors with a woven branch network to break up your outline as you hunch down against the bank. There aren’t any overly bright colors to stand out against your waders or the environment around you. You should use the Harvest Moon™ pattern in low-light conditions (e.g., dawn and dusk, cloudy days, etc.) and Outshine™ on brighter, sunny days. Basically, these two camouflage patterns have the benefits of traditional camouflage, while still being somewhat edgy and different from green leaves on a brown background.


But if you’re looking for a fishing camo pattern that really stands out, the natural choice for fishing apparel is obviously Undertow™ camo by Moon Shine Camo®. It actually looks like an underwater scene, minus the fish themselves of course. The bold tree limbs against the backdrop of blue are visually stunning and leaves no question that you’re there to fish and take names. But as we mentioned, it’s not one that will blend into the surroundings on a cloudy or sunny day alike. You and anything sporting it will definitely stand out.



Preparing for Fishing Season

Depending on where you live, you could definitely still be going ice fishing this time of year. Even though it’s been a warm winter, there are still lots of opportunities for most people. If that’s the case, your fishing equipment is probably already in use and you’re already rocking the Moon Shine Camo® gear.


But if you’re starting to anxiously eye the calendar and look forward to spring activities and open water fishing seasons, you probably have some work to do to prepare first. Inevitably, we always leave our fishing equipment in worse shape than we intend to, and it no doubt has been shuffled around during the winter months. This somewhat organized chaos can be a recipe for hectic conditions come opening day of fishing season. Don’t wait until the week before the opener to prepare your equipment. Here’s the process you can follow to get your fishing gear cleaned, organized, and camouflaged and ready for a trip to the lake or river.



Clean and Organize Your Gear

The first step is always the hardest and least thrilling, but it’s important. Gather up all your handheld fishing gear and clothing and place it in a central spot, such as the garage or your living room, so you can get a good look at it all. Open up each box or compartment and lay everything out. If you have access to your boat, this is also a good time to inspect it.


Clean everything that needs it, throw unnecessary stuff away and add new items as applicable. As a few examples, your fishing reels might need cleaning and re-spooling, the tackle boxes are probably in disarray and missing critical lures, and the boat should be swept out and wiped down. If you notice you’re running low on a certain item (your favorite jig, perhaps), this would be a good time to run to the store and buy a few more.


While it might still be too early to wash your fishing clothing for the opener, it’s good to take stock of what you have and what seems to be missing. Early season conditions can still be chilly, so make sure you have ample fishing hoodies and jackets to keep you warm. By the same token, do you have a few lighter, performance shirts to keep you cool once the season takes off? Correcting these issues now will save time later.


Time for Camouflage

Once you have a solid grip on what you have and feel good about the condition it’s in, it’s time to consider fishing camouflage. Again, having true camouflage fishing clothing will probably help you for trout fishing or fishing from shore, but it’s largely unnecessary while you’re out on a boat or on a dock. The chances are pretty good that the fish will realize there is something unnatural already there when you’re trolling or bow fishing, so what’s a leafy camo fishing shirt going to do?


Instead, the fishing camo patterns you use on a boat should be something that reflects your personality and stands out. Whether you want different looking fishing shirts, hats, hoodies, jackets, towels, or more, there is something with your favorite camo pattern on it. Moon Shine Camo® dipping is a great way to cover any of your gear in your favorite fishing camo patterns. Simply search for a hydrographic dealer near you to help you through the process. You’d be surprised at all the things you can have dipped, which creates a really custom-made look to any ordinary piece of gear.


There are also dozens of different kits you can use to easily wrap your boat, boat motor, four-wheeler, truck, and more in the pattern you choose. These simple accents make a big difference to the final look of your equipment. You can even get Undertow™ camo seat covers for your truck to complete the stylish design.



This year, take the time to organize your fishing gear so you know what you have and what you need before you actually need it. While you’re at it, make your old equipment feel brand new by wrapping it in your favorite Moon Shine Camo® fishing camo patterns. This simple adjustment can breathe new life into old gear and extend its lifetime significantly. All it takes is a little effort right now.

Ice Fishing Clothing for the Family | Dress for Success

Your Ice Fishing Clothing Game Plan

Like almost any outdoor activity, ice fishing is best enjoyed (or maybe only enjoyed) when you take time to prepare for it. While you might be able to improvise in the warmer months, being unprepared in winter is a recipe for a really unenjoyable time afield. Cold temperatures, icy winds, and bad clothing don’t mix well. This is compounded even more when your whole family is with you to experience the displeasure. This season, get everyone on the same page and upgrade your ice fishing clothing using the ice fishing tips and clothing system below. You and the family will have much more fun, even if you don’t catch as many fish as you’d like to.


What Makes Good Ice Fishing Clothing?


The days of dressing in cotton long underwear and sweatshirts is mostly gone, but we suspect it’s lingering among a few die-hard anglers out there. The problem with cotton is that it doesn’t wick moisture at all, which is a real issue. Inevitably, we’re going to sweat when we’re ice fishing; usually it happens while we’re being mobile (e.g., dragging a fishing shelter, drilling holes for the family, etc.). When we’re done with the physical activity and sit down to watch our bobbers, the sweat just sits there against our skin and cools off. This slowly robs us of our own body temperature and starts a chilling cycle nobody likes to experience when they’re out on the lake. In no time, we’re ready to pack up again, and it’s not even 9 AM.


Performance clothing, on the other hand, is made of synthetic materials like polyester (or blends with cotton) that wick moisture through the fabric. When we sweat, it is basically transferred through our outdoor clothing to the outside of the garment to evaporate away. This keeps our skin drier and allows us to stay comfortable longer. In other words, you should be able to spend more quality time with your family fishing on the ice. The only time pure cotton could be acceptable is if you wouldn’t be doing much physical work; in other words, you show up just in time to fish in the preheated shelter. Everyone’s got a buddy or family member like that anyway, right?


How to Dress for Ice Fishing


With that introduction done, let’s dive into the specific details of your ice fishing clothing system. Layering clothes for cold weather is the best way to regulate your body temperature. Each cold weather clothing layer is very important, but the system itself is pretty customizable for your preferences.


Ryan Lisson


Start with a performance base layer (i.e., long underwear top and bottom, underwear, socks) next to your skin. This material should always be a moisture-wicking powerhouse since it’s in direct contact with your sweaty skin. That’s exactly its purpose, so make sure that it is snug enough to be in constant contact. If it’s too loose, it won’t touch it enough to effectively wick the sweat out and away. Your first pair of socks should also be a liner sock made of polyester or fine wool, which will transmit sweat away from your feet to keep them dry. Cold feet will send you packing pretty fast.


The next winter fishing clothing layer is the one that you adjust most based on the conditions and your activity levels. This insulating layer (or more accurately, layers) should also pull sweat away from your body, but they should primarily hold your body heat. To combine these qualities and get the best of both, a blend of polyester and cotton or polyester and wool works well for ice fishing clothing. The idea is that you can add or remove one of these layers as you cool down or heat up, respectively. The first insulation layers should be slightly snugger to pull sweat out and away, but they can get larger as they move away from your body. Oddly enough, having fewer layers with some dead air space actually helps hold heat longer than multiple tight layers. Typical insulation layers might include wool socks, fleeces, sweatshirts, or vests. This is where the Moon Shine Camo® ice fishing clothing really excels. For example, pairing a hoodie with a black camo vest provides some great insulation on those chilly winter fishing days. If it warms up or you move into a shelter, you can remove the vest and fish in your sweatshirt alone.


Finally, there’s the outside shell layer that protects everything inside. As far as ice fishing apparel goes, this can be a deal breaker for people. Having lots of insulation is great, but it won’t count for much if the wind cuts through it to steal your body heat and the snow melts on your clothing. The outer shell keeps your heat in and the cold wind out. Find a durable winter jacket and bibs that are water- and wind-resistant, and pick up some high-quality boots with 800 to 1,000 grams insulation. You’ll often find yourself kneeling on the ice and your boots will get slushy water on them after drilling holes, so having waterproof ice fishing gear is a must. That being said, you also need the material to be breathable. If not, all that moisture wicked from your body will stop at the barrier of your shell layer instead of venting out to the world.


Then there are the other critical ice fishing accessories, namely being hats and gloves. Depending on how cold it is and whether or not you’re ice fishing in a shelter, you may or may not need a few pair of either. For example, some anglers like to wear a performance beanie underneath a warmer,

insulating hat. This is good for sitting outside using tip-ups, but it is overkill when you’re in a warm shelter. Ice fishing gloves are a different story. Since gloves can make reeling a cumbersome process, it’s best to wear a very warm chopper-style mitten that you can easily slide on and off. That way, you can quickly remove them to catch a fish and put them back on when you’re done baiting the next hook. Keep a spare hand towel hooked to your waist so you can rinse your hands in the water and dry them off before putting your mittens back on. If it’s really cold, you could put a hand warmer into the mitten.


Do You Have the Right Ice Fishing Clothing?


Well, does the system above make sense? While there are lots of youth clothing options to dress your kids according to the layers above, sometimes it might make more sense to bring a shelter and heater to have a mobile base camp. That way when your kids ultimately get too sweaty from running around (which they will), they can dry off and stay warm inside. It will also keep you fishing longer…just saying.
