Fishing: Recycling your waders….

Saw this idea at Deneki Outdoors & Epic Angling where one takes your leaking (can’t salvage them) boot foot/stocking foot waders and cut off the neoprene boots. Now you have an industrial strength set of rain pants/bibs that while worn with rubber boots will out do any typical pair of bibs. Great idea. I have an old pair of Simms Guides that will soon fall into this category.

Fishing: Gravel Guards & Abrasion

simms-guide-boot-swittersb-gravel guardsSimple elastic, stretch bands with velcro closures are wrapped around the top of the boot to prevent silt, gravel, grit from gaining total access into the boot and rubbing against the outside of your stocking foot portion of your waders. These are a good investment to protect your waders.

Some newer waders actually have a built in gravel guard that pulls down over the top of the boot. If you have waders without that built in gravel guard like I do, then the gravel guards provide the protection and even some ankle support.

The advantage of the built in gravel guards? You won’t forget them as they are always attached. I always seem to be hanging mine to dry, then grab my gear and don’t notice the gravel guards hanging.

I snapped these two examples of gravel guards covering two different pairs of wading boots I have worn. Remember, you aren’t really protecting the ever rugged wading boot but the stocking (neoprene) foot/ankle portion of the waders. Some grit will still get by, but the amounts will be significantly reduced and protect that spendy investment in waders.
