Hi Guys


Looking at getting some waders, but which ones? Anyone have any suggestions.

Anaconda have some mojito noeprene ones on sale for $69

BCF have a plastic wader with free rod for $59


Does anyone have any and can suggest what I should go for?

 Beach fishing, freshwater wading or reef wading?


I cringe when I see people standing on reefs in wash wearing waders, go under and that's one big anchor strapped to you! Or maybe I'm just soft. For beach fishing to keep me warm I wear waterproof pants with jeans underneath and Wellington boots, just make sure the waterproofs go over the top of the boots and are a tight fit. Allows me to go up to the nut sack level without getting wet. Just my two cents

just for standing on shore

just for standing on shore spinning lures, was out the other morning, and there were some guys wearing waders, they looked much warmer than I did. I felt like a little kid running backwards away from the waves after casting. haha.

I've got wet weather gear and reef boots, but no gumboots, figure I may as well just buy waders rather than just boots.

The waders from BCF are ok but if you want a pair that will last and last you cant go past a pair of Hornes waders,they are a lot more expensive but well worth it.I had my last pair for over 15 years and only got rid of them when i grew out of them LOL Am a bit wider in the girth now days.

for me as well, stuff the cost, far more comfy.

One important little clue, do not fold them up as they have a tendacy to get perish marks on the folds. I hang mine with the boots in pvc tubes mounted to the wall in my shed.
