I got my first pair of waders a few weeks ago and the difference defies description... You are in for a real treat.

I wear waders when it's 90 degrees. It's hot, but there are leeches in my favorite smallmouth stream. I've had them attached to my boots and waders when leaving the stream....

In fly fishing, like golf, some times looking the part is half the battle I have my waders, boots, vest, a couple vented fishing shirts, lucky fishing hat. shoot all I need is one of those cool neck lanyard and I will have the full cub scout uniform going.....hahhahaha

I hear ya, after my feet went numb this past weekend, I bought the new Redington Sonicseam zip-front waders. Hopefully I'll stay dry, warm, and be able to pee easily!

Congrats! I was lucky enough to get some hand me down gear from some friends starting out so I had the problem of looking like I knew what I was doing when I didn't have a clue. Can't imagine fishing without waders this time of year.
