Safe Wading Tips:
Always keep two rules in mind when wading in any body of water: wade with caution, and wade with care. There are obvious and not-so-obvious dangers inherent with wading.
Following these tips will help you experience a safe and enjoyable trip:
*Use a wading staff to feel the bottom before stepping.
*Never wade alone.
*Always wear waders that fit properly.
*Wear a wading belt to create a seal between your body and the wader.
*In rivers and streams, identify potential dangers down current such as waterfalls, log jams, or undertows before entering the water.
*Walk slowly, smoothly, and carefully.
*Wear a personal floatation device.
*Be aware of tides, currents, and water level changes.
*If you fall, don’t panic. Don’t fight the current, work with it. Allow the current to drift you downstream as you work your body towards the bank.
*Never continue wading if your waders are full of water.
” I really like these. They fit me very well I was super happy with that. Makes moving around a lot easier. With the nylon outer shell these will last a lot longer then other waders I have had. The shoulder strips are nice and wide so you don’t have to worry about them cutting into your shoulders.The front pocket is big enough to put your fly box in or tools. They also pack down so small so I can put them in my back pack so I can hike in the woods so i don’t have to wear them out to my spot!!!!!”
“These waders are durable and great for colder weather. They will alow you to bundle up underneath. The waders allow for a free range of motion for any activity. The construction of these is impressive and they should last a long time. I have a little more piece of mind with little worry of something minor creating a tear or leak. If you are looking for a pair of waders for a tough job in wet conditions, or to hunt ducks in fall or winter weather, these would be great.”
“These waders are lightweight, durable, and comfortable. The boots are a little tight on the ankles but it doesn’t really bother me. Great for spring and summer trout fishing because you won’t get too hot wading the streams all day. Great price point as well. Perfect purchase for trout anglers, bow anglers, or shore fisherman”
