Ok guys I guess this question was asked many times here, but I suck in doing a search Toungue

Waders Waders Waders...


I have a pair but it really cheap and it really sucks... They are very durable but very uncomfortable and extra heavy...

So, I'm looking for a pair of waders, they MUST be as light as possible to be able to travel miles on foot and comfortable for a 6.5ft guy with #13 shoe size... (which is not an every day regular size, so it makes it harder to find sometimes)

Any suggestions? Brands? Models?

THANKS!!!

And one more thing... After I buy a good pair of waders, I'm also thinking about buying a kit for self fixing... Is there any kind of stuff like this that can be used right on the beach with immediately drying glue? Let's say I got a cut but don't want to finish my fishing trip because of such a small accident...

THANKS!!!

Here is some help with the search, 5 pages worth of waders topics...

WADERS

Aquaseal works pretty good for patching up holes, however, it needs time to dry.

waders

As for glue, you may want to check out TearAid which can be found in many bt shops. You just have to let the wader dry then apply and it has worked well for Kat(KADAMS) and I.
As for waders, that is a horse of another color, you may take a look at simmsthey are a bit expensive but they will make them custom and they are in the USA. I had to get Kat (KADAMS)a set as her feet are so small that no boot foot waders would fit her.

Based on what you have said, I would definately go with a pair of lightweight breathable waders .... in those colder mo's you can always add a few layers underneath.

Red Ballsif you can find them. Some tackle shops may have a few outsized pairs left on the shelves or in storage since they went out of business. I found a pair for about 100 dollars this year. My last pair lasted me since 1999, and they were leaking just slightly but all the buttons for the shoulder straps finally rusted away. I walked six miles in them one day this week, but I wouldn't advise doing that on a hot summer day.Finger They are not breathable and boot foot. If you are fishing on alot of rocks I would advise stocking foot and wading shoes, but I have a wetsuit. If you fish on alot of sand I would advise boot foot.

Don't forget to get a good solid wading belt and korkers to go with it.

I like Cabela's waders they are cheap and easy to repair.
