    Default Where can I find Knee High Neoprenes?

    I'm looking for some knee high neoprene socks to use in the summer. The streams I fish in the summer are extremely frigid and I want a little protection, and I'm hoping that they will assist in debris prevention. I first saw them in "Trout Bum Diaries" and I haven't been able to find them anywhere.
    Can anyone shed some light or give suggestion?

    You can get neoprene hip boots most anywhere.

    Knee-high neoprene socks? That's a new one to me too. Do they come with garters to hold them up? Sorry, sounds silly to me.

    I wear nylon pants in the summer, protects the legs from bugs and grasses and all those allergy/prickly things. They dry fast, and cold water usually feels good on a hot summer day.

    Or find some hippers or even the waist high breathables.

    Nylon pants are what I usually wear, but I don't like how the pants feel while trekking from run to run. Not only that, but the amount of bark, tiny rocks and dirt!
    Every 30 minutes; find a spot to sit down (near water), untie double-knot, remove shoe, take off sock, flip sock right-side out, submerge sock 2-3 times, submerge shoe 2-3 times, put sock and shoe back on, retie double-knot, and repeat with other foot. It gets old trip after trip…

    Mostly I would use them for late spring/early summer, I just can't seem to find anything similar...

    I don't know if they have such a thing but check out scuba diving gear.

    These look interesting. Check out the videos and reviews.

    I also found some links to Chota knee highs but they are no longer made.

    Just get some flats booties or kick boat booties. Check out NRS too.

    They still list them on their website along with the new "Hippies" that I have been thinking of getting.

    So...................... If I really wanted to make a do it myself wet wading system I would get a pair of the neoprene booties, wear them with the wading boot, and check the Outdoor / Mountaineering suppliers for neoprene gaiters. I have a pair of neoprene gaiters and somewhere I have a pair of Hodgmen's neoprene sock / booties.

    That sounds about as close as you might get. The gaiters would keep the junk from getting down into the sock / boot.
