Just got a pair of Hodgeman 3.5mm Neoprene Waders. Tried them out this morning and they worked great! They kept me dry and most importantly DID NOT LEAK!! I don't have wading boots yet. I used my old hiking boots they are kinda are waterlogged now but they worked well as far as traction and grip. I put them by the de-humidifier hoping they will dry out before next time..lol The fish weren't biting so at least the waders made my day!!
