Re: Value priced waders and boots?

Keep an eye out on the Bass Pro Shop and Cabelas websites for the next 4 months. Last year about this time they had some Simms waders on sale (normally $200 were going for $75).

Re: Back To School


Cabelas has some really great outfits for a good price. I purchased a 4wt Traditions II / Three Forks combo a 2 years ago when I got back into fly fishing. It is a good set up.
