Make a trip down here and go fishing with me! It isn't Alaska but it's fishing!

When they are out of service, we rinse, then let them dry completely. After that, they get hung by their suspenders from garment hangers in a spare bedroom closet. ( Dark, Dry, Warm and Un-creased in anyway. )

I put them on for the first time since early April, this past Sunday morning at the 5,400’ elevation mark. We got our first real snow - 14 inches over the summit yesterday that came with chain controls on 2WD vehicles. It’ll be in the low seventies here again by Wednesday noon…and we’ll be back to going wader-less for ("I HOPE" ) another couple of weeks.

Sorry, no storage for my waders any time during the year but especially in the winter. Idaho winters can be brutal but when the weather is tolerable we are out and about and our waders never even have a chance to dry

What's this talk about wader storage? 365... Fishing don't stop... My waders never get put in storage... Summer they just take a back seat to shorts or my quick dry pants.

Pretty close; mine just get (along with the boots) tossed into the back of the Jeep and be done with it. Along with the wet dog........

Only thing that changes for me is how much I have on underneath!

I use them all year.
