IF YOU CAN AF­FORD THEM...

Trout & Salmon (UK) - - READING RIVERS -

8 I’m sur­prised to see so many fish­er­men still us­ing plas­tic or rub­ber chest waders, even on ex­pen­sive beats where the fish­ing fee is many times that of a good pair of breath­able waders. I believe breath­ables are one of the most im­por­tant in­no­va­tions of re­cent years. In rub­ber or plas­tic waders you sweat like the devil when it’s warm or you must walk the banks, and then you freeze when back in the wa­ter. Tra­di­tion does not jus­tify their use – they are not good for your health.

Ny­lon chest waders are af­ford­able but you'll "sweat like the devil" on a long walk.
