  1. Went out yesterday to fish a local river and ended up with a soggy foot. With what the water temps are it was not exactly a pleasant trip. By the time the trip was through I was fihless and had about two cups of water in my left boot foot. Needless to say I'm in search of a new waders. Looking to not break the bank. I'm done spending $400 -$500 on waders. So can anyone recommend a bargain brand of waders?
  2. I have boot waders. I fish the beach on the east end ocean.. I have go to a few particular MTk coves but my old feet hurt. It is no big deal. I can't seem to feel comfortable on the north side so I never go cause slipping and sliding with my boot waders. What do I need? Whats best? Felt? boot? boot with corkers? what should I buy?
  3. Oaki kids waders. Used a few times freshwater bank fishing. No tears or rips $70 shipped located in central nj for pickup also
  4. I am on the hunt for a new set of waders. I am using an old pair of LL Bean boot fit waders but after about 10 years they are leaking on the boot seam. I don't think I can prove purchase to use the lifetime warranty of the LL Beans since it has been so long. So I am on the hunt for new ones and am wondering if I should go with stocking foot or with boot fit. I exclusively fish from the surf. But came across these and was wondering if there are surf fishing waders specifically. Of course going with stocking foot would require getting wading boots, which there does seem to be some salt water specific options there and would require additional cost. But the boot foot waders seem to be more clunky and poor fitting than stocking foot. So I was looking for people opinions/suggestions.
  5. Have a pair of brand new in box Simms G4 pro Waders size L (9-11 foot) in box with tags attached I ordered and didn't use. Paid close to 750.00, will sell for 450.00 cash . Picked up in SF Bay Area only . Not looking to ship.
  6. Does anyone have any experience with these waders, I just bought a pair and before I use them, I was wondering if they're any good. I've been having a hard time the past few years finding waders that will keep me dry, not restrict my range of motion on the jetty and last more than a season.
  7. 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)
  8. Bought these boots brand new this year and used them 3x and it didn’t really consist of walking or hiking because I rode a bike to my spot then waded. They are in great shape. Let me know if you want them then come pick them up in Andover/Tewksbury, Ma area or pay for shipping. $80 is the perfect price seeing as though most atms only give multiples of $20.
  9. Waders

    Need to upgrade my Hodgeman waders are good in the summer but last winter did not cut it. I layered up big time but still got very cold. Dry but cold. Recommendations for a durable pair for cold weather ? Doing it all surf fishing, back bays, Delaware River...

  11. Anyone else wear knee pads of any kind? Maybe you don't need em while skishing or wading, but for anything shore-based (besides sand) I find em more than worthwhile. I'm a young dude, but arthritis runs hard in the family + I'm already in trades, so anything to keep myself comfortable sounds good to me.
  12. LL Bean Kennebec Waders — Regular Large — There is a patched hole in the right knee and it does not leak, otherwise they’re in good shape. $50 shipped PayPal
  13. I am in need of a new pair of boot foot waders to fish the surf was curious on what everyone's favorite pair of boot foots are . The pairs I own are on there last patch job so to speak and I am looking for ideas on what new pair to get . Thanks
  14. Does anybody have any suggestions for this: I’d like to fish a combination of open sand beach and jetty. Don’t want to wear boot foot waders, or any waders really, because they are awkward and dangerous on the jetty. Now when water is warm I use felt bottom wading boots and neoprene socks and shorts on the beach and jetty. But for fall, can anyone suggest a neoprene pants or something that aren’t waders that will keep me warm AND waterproof? Or am I only dreaming? I was thing longer neoprene socks and some sort of tight cuffed pants could kind of make a seal.
  15. The boot foots are brand new size 11 $100 picked up or meet up stOcking foots are large regular. Have seen some use. They don’t leak $80
  16. Brand new patagonia swiftcurrent expedition zip-front waders. Size MLM (patagonia will exchange size at no cost). 690.
  17. Bought a pair of patagonia swiftcurrent expedition zip front waders that I won't be using. They are new in box. Size medium long length (40 girth, 34 inseam, 9-11 shoe size). 700 shipped. I bought them with a gift card for 750 + tax and shipping. If I return them to patagonia I will only get the money in a gift card hence why I am selling them. Let me know if you have any questions.
  18. All .. about to purchase yet another set of waders. Previously Ive purchased LLBean goretex stocking foot waders, but they as others have leaked in the surf. Yes I know there are hundreds of similar posts, but just trying to get an up to date poll on the most robust stocking foot waders (or pointers to any new wader technologies). Budget is around $250. Currently the fav seems to be Simms Freestone .. but I'm open just dont want that wet pants feeling after a years use. And yes I always hose down with freshwater after each use. Please no subjective responses. thanks very much, Haddock
  19. I’ve been on a 3 year break from fishing. My old reliable Simms Muckboot waders are leaky and I’m looking for something on par for reliability and quality. I know now there’s a bunch of wader threads but I’m looking specifically for high end quality so I figured it would be worth a new thread. Talk to me goose! thanks, ErikT

  21. My boots gave out and the waders are still going strong! Three seasons of abuse and the waders put lasted the boots. i need or am in the market for a new pair of waders to go over the top of the stocking foot type waders. I fish a lot of rocks (especially montauk) and was interested in finding any opinions from owners or happy waders owners! Rubbers soles vs felt vs studs? Let me know and thanks in advance!
  22. Comes with original box, carry bag, and puncture weld kit. Condition: These waders are in excellent condition. No damage, no puncture, work perfectly. I used them about 5 times on the beach at Ft. Tilden/Breezy in the fall or spring over the past few years. And I washed them off after using each time, air dried, and stored them in the box. I’m 6ft 200lbs, size 12 shoe, and these fit me well. These are great and built to last. Bootfoot felt, size 12 Large. Retails for $198.00 Selling for $50 Local pickup in Brooklyn, or add shipping costs with USPS. PS: And it looks like they don’t make this style anymore.
  23. Hello 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
  24. Was gifted a pair of caddis northern guide breathable stocking foot waders a few years back... I'm 6'4 . I wear a size 14eee shoe...waders fit great....but I didn't want the hassle of finding a comfortable pair of wading boots..just to much work for me for an hour of fishing b4 work I just bought a pair of boot foot from the caddis company that are amazing . Wore them once in shower....and once calf deep in surf. New holes, no wear, no smell (always shower b4 I fish...its a thing lol) •$100 local sale (Old Bridge nj) •XXL stout ** will also throw in a pair of size 16 crocs P.S. possible trade for plug bag, pouches rods reels....lmk what you got we can maybe work something out (+cash on my end or your end depending)
  25. I'm going to be going tomorrow or Sunday to Cabela's to return these for the $60 I paid for them. I bought them to try them out but they're way too big for me. I'm a skinny but tall guy and thought I could use a large for the bigger bootie but they're huge on the waist for me. I'm also not a fan of neoprene. I wore them twice to test them out but they've been sitting in my room for a while collecting dust. I have the box for them as well at the patching stuff that came with them. My loss is your gain. $40 picked up around Matawan, NJ. Save me that trip to Cabela's!
