Re: Help! Waders VS Wading Boots?
do you mean bootfoot waders versus sticking foot waders with separate wading boots? i'd suggest stocking foot waders with separate wading boots. for summer time when the water feels nice on the legs you could wear just the boots with a neoprene sock like the simms. the neoprene socks take up the extra space usually taken by the neoprene booties on the stocking foot waders. boots also offer extra ankle support. but i don't fish your area so am not in tune with the specific needs. when wet wading with this system, water will eventually get into the boots but the neoprene layer adds some warmth like a diver's wet suit. if you wanted to stay completely dry, depending on the water levels you fish, maybe stocking foot hip boots would work too. how dep do you wade?
