Waders, always afraid of some weird little creatures attaching themselves to my legs.

Want to see a grown man scream like a girl? Let him reach under water to pick up a rock and have a big ole bug crawl onto his hand.

I generally have 7 mm neoprene chest waders and boots in the car. If I can avoid putting them on I do. Few places I fish, they make life a lot easier.

I bank walk as much as possible in knee high "muck boots"

Big things for me are ticks and poison ivy. Really thinking about 3 or 5 mm neoprene hip boots.

Depends...waders in certain situations, quick dry pants and neoprene socks for others. Flip flops and wade fishing! Too bold for me. Flips in the drift boat! Cheers mate!

it really wont matter at the time,as long as I have a rod and time >I'M ALL IN<!!!..reminds me of a time when I was in Ireland,hitting the pubs in Galway.
saw a gentleman in a fine tweed jacket,wool cap,smoking a pipe fly fishing.
I immediately ran up to the bridge to see what was goin on.it was mainly tourists ,such as myself,taking pictures.WELL, AFTER LOOKING OVER,INTO THE WATER I SAW ALL THESE SALMON,,i couldn't get to our car fast enough,all I had w/ me in the bonnet was a light spinning set up.needless to say I grabbed a handful of spinners etc.RAN BACK AND HOPPED IN~!!!
THE LAUGHTER I GOT FROM THE LOCALS--"HEY LOOK AT THE YANK,LOOK AT THE YANK"--they didn't have to look too long as I nailed about 4 brown sea runs....soaking wet and smiling I dripped my way back to the car.

Nice to see this old post " float to the surface "
I live where the water is cold all year long. Almost all of my fishing is done with waders on. As Big Bird once said, " You could freeze your giblets off up here "

Default Re: Waders vs. Shorts

I will wear waders from Nov. 1 to April 1, and then I wet wade the rest of the year.

I have some quick dry fishing pants made by Cloudveil that are awesome for wet wading...I much prefer them to wearing shorts or a swimming suit.

Depends on the place I'm fishing. If it is a spot where I can stay knee deep I will wet wade. If it's deeper than that or a new stretch. I prefer waders.

Man you have mas grande huevos , I love wet wading and am built for warmth so to speak. Man i can't get in the high mt streams here in the Rockies until June or so. I hate those tweeter months where the weathers warm enough to wet wade but my sissy side makes me wear waders.

I wet wade in to October but by then the streams are low enough flows to only be knee deep max.

I need to look into those cloudveil pants
