Thigh-high thorn foe

Trout & Salmon (UK) - - TACKLE -

Breath­able waders are the most com­fort­able way to stay dry in the river. But ny­lon re­mains use­ful. Snow­bee’s 210-denier ny­lon thigh waders are tough and may with­stand bram­bles and graz­ing. They are likely to last longer than breath­ables. If you can put up with hot feet on days when the sun cracks the flags or when you face a long walk, they’re a rea­son­able op­tion and per­fectly hab­it­able at other times. Thigh waders are al­ways use­ful. Keep them in the car boot – they take up lit­tle space – and pull them on more quickly than lace-up boots and chest waders, for that hour or two grabbed af­ter work. Choose ei­ther deep cleated or feltand-stud soles. The welling­ton bot­toms are light­weight so of­fer lit­tle heel and toe pro­tec­tion. Straps and buck­les at­tach the thin tops to a belt. They won't stay up with­out a belt. It's ad­vis­able to try them on for size first and to check the strap will reach your belt. Sizes: 5-15 cleated sole. 5-14 combi felt sole.
