Hi All, For Christmas I received my first pair of waders. They are the kind where the rubber boots are attached to the pants/bib so not separate boots. Can someone please give some advice on when and how to use waders? I usually surf cast from sand and haven't really rock hopped much. Are they mainly for colder weather months to stay warm/dry? I also heard that there are some safety things to know too (waders filled with water === bad)
Rob greenpond posted a topic in Main ForumHello all Just wanted to get a sense of what you all think would be better as an "all purpose wader boot bottom--"felt" or "rubber lug"." I have some waders from the trout fishing days (Simms) which are the stocking foot type with felt bottoms wading boots (separate boots). I haven't used them in years, as I've been mostly a saltwater boat fisherman, but I remember them being a pain in the ass to get on and stones getting down inside them. Thus, I've been thinking of getting some plain old "boot foot" waders for easy on and off, as well as good sealing from stones/sand getting in my boot. I'll be using the boot foot waders for surf fishing (sand beaches, gravel beaches, jettys, around light house areas standing on boulders...etc.--all purpose) with "light wading" here and there but NOT deep at all....maybe knee to thigh deep (max). Thinking rubber lug bottoms would be "lighter/easier/nimble" to walk around in, but may not have the traction of felt. What do you guys prefer and suggest?? Thanks in advance for any opinions. Rob
Emilone posted a topic in Main ForumHello to the fisherman all around the world! I have just purchased a new Dawia Certate 13 2506H with a 3kg (7lb) drag setup. The dragsystem is a single felt washer setup, and i wonder if i can upgrade the drag with Carbontex on a single felt washer to 1. increase the drag, and 2. get the smoother drag. I have google some but online find tutorials on how they do it on a multi-surface-dragsystem. BR
