Hodgeman wader repair

5 posts in this topic

I've got a pair of Hodgeman slipper waders, the brown ones. Pulling docks this past weekend, I got scraped pretty good to put a tear in the waders. Anyone know what type of patch material could be used? It's a very small hole but does leak.

I have a pair of Hodgman waders and they came w/ a little tube of "repair cement" of some kind. Do you still have the box you bought them around? I would bet if you do, the little tube of repair cement would do the trick. Or, contact Hodgman on the web doing a search for their contact info/website...

Neoprene or rubber? If there neoprene I have used marine goo as well as silicone caulk with good success.

Neoprene. I didn't purchase them new, so no box or repair tube. I just tried some marine goo last night, see how that works.

A friend of mine has several old neoprene wet suits that he sacraficed to use as patches. If the marine goo alone doesn't work, I'll try applying a patch by Goo'ing both sides and pressing together. Apparenetly he's had real good luck with that.

Thanks for the suggestions.

      Whatever it takes to open the ring enough to get the process started.  I've just found I have a lot more control over the process with a couple small pliers and fewer pokes in the finger tips.   I've even been known to use the pliers for other things but I'm kind of creative that way.

      1-24-17 Fishing Report The fishing in the 30-33 feet of water range has been producing several limits of 14-17 inch Walleyes and Saugers with a few smaller yearlings in the mix as well. We have also seen a few perch around the 12 inch range as well as a few tulibees and pout coming up the holes. The fish have been biting more timidly so patience before setting the hook is a must. A plain red hook on a dead stick continues to produce a decent number of fish as well as using smaller jigging spoons,rattle spoons,buck shots and stop signs with glow in the dark pink,green,blue and gold being the effective colors. The hot times for the bite seem to be between 10 am-4 pm with a decent number of bites being reported between first light to 10 am. The bite in the 16-20 feet of water range has cooled off a bit with a few keepers still being brought up mixed in with a handful of yearlings. The flashers continue to be a highly recommended tool up here on LOTW as there remains to be a decent number of suspended fish being seen.  Good luck fishing on beautiful Lake of the Woods!
