All good advice here. Dan Bailey makes great stuff too.
I'll recommend three different routes-
1- Buy a pair of Gore-Tex Simms and you're set for years.
2- Buy the $100 (roughly) LL Bean waders and you've got a hell of a value that will last a good while.
3- Check www.sierratradingpost.com
for some smokin deals on most of the brands GRN mentioned.
