Every Day in May Challenge: Waders (Old, Stained & Yellowed)

EVERY DAY IN MAY CHALLENGE FOR BLOGGERS: WADERS

The best purchase I have ever made in all my years of fly fishing. No rod, no reel, no vest, no pack, nothing equals the purchase of my Gore Tex waders quite a few years ago. Closely associated are the best possible boots to go with them. Getting out of those old, foul, smelly, tight, ugly neoprene waders, a supposed improvement over the old rubberized wader of old, was the best thing I ever did.

 Dirtied, soiled, stained…’rode hard and put away wet’ my Simms waders (you can pick your own non-neoprene, Gore Tex brand of waders). Well worth the investment. Nothing worse than trying to shimmy out of those old, wet neo’s on a sub freezing Winter day. Did I mention I hated those old neoprene waders?

Waders: Your Crotch is Ripe (Sweat, Dribbles, Bad JuJu)

CLEANING THOSE STINKING WADERS, INSIDE & OUT

I periodically wash my waders inside and out. Months of walking, sitting on a pontoon boat, sweating and dribbling creates a visual and olfactory slight to the senses. I mean when I remove God’s gift to fly fishing: my breathable waders, they look disgusting. Despite my somewhat fastidious ways, I end up with disgusting waders.

I don’t mind the stains on the outside so much. They give me that ‘been there, done that’ appearance. But, boy howdy, those yellowish stains in the inside are embarrassing (I know I never wet my waders, but……) when I remove them. So, read the above link for a safe way to delicately wash your waders with a very diluted powdered detergent. As many sites will say DO NOT use liquid detergents or other harsh cleaners. Read Crashq’s 2 Comments also about what to do as well as what NOT to do. A shot of Fabreze might help too now and then.
