Re: Hip waders?
I am in the same situation. I would like to get into stream fishing. The streams I will fish are in the driftless area of NE Iowa. I went there this summer, and there were only a few places I waded that were up to my waist. The price of chest waders is overwhelming, especially knowing that they all might leak someday anyway. I too, want them for when it is cold or even moderately warm. I am thinking a beautiful spring day with temps in the 60's would still be rather frigid in that water without waders.
