Re: waders-neoprene vs. breathables
If you can afford the breathable nice lightweight epic wants waders BUY THEM! You wont be disappointed. If the budget is tight the big clunky neoprene waders work just fine I use mine all winter and all summer. I do recommend the thick socks with either one you go with.
Some of those hike in lakes will get to ya after a while with those neoprene waders and float tube. Blah.
There's a fine line between fishing and just standing on the shore like an idiot.
Here's to Tight Lines, Bent Rods, and Screamin Reels.... FISH ON!
