In Reply to: Warm Weather Waders Recommendations posted by GINGER on June 16, 1997 at 10:47:40:
: Any suggestions or recommendations on an AFFORDABLE pair of warm weather waders ?, I have found that the Summer time weather in No. Ga and SE NC mountains is warm/hot enough to make my 3mm neoprenes uncomfortable and 'clamy' after a full day on trout waters. Thanks in advance.
Ginger: Cabela's has great waders for warm weather both in stockingfoot and bootfoot. They're 420 denier nylon coated with PVC with a pocketed bib top. They're tough, lightweight and really comfortable in warm weather. In fact, I use them all year by wearing warmup pants during cold seasons
or in cold water. They stockingfoot model is $29.95 and the uninsulated bootfoot model with felt soles is $49.95. They also have women's waders both in stockingfoot and bootfoot but they have open tops, the nylon is lighter and the cost is more ($44.95 for stockingfoot and $64.95 for bootfoot).
I use the $29.95 waders for both wading and tubing and have been thorougly satisfied. They've now been used about 20 times and look as good as they did the day I pulled them out of the box. You can get a catalogue by calling 800 237-4444. Be sure to ask for both the regular catalogue and the
flyfishing catalogue. The waders are called Cabela's Three Forks Featherlight Waders. Your only problem might be that the foot size is too large. The smallest is a man's size 7 which, I believe, is equivalent to a woman's size 8 or 9. Cabela's also has some inexpensive wading shoes but they
also run in men's sizes. And, they have a woman's wading shoe but it's more expensive at $49.95. In any case, getthe catalogue. Cabela's has become my favorite mail-order outfitter because they have good to excellent quality gear at reasonable prices.
