Wader Repair?

6 posts in this topic

Has anyone ever repaired a pair of waders? I bought a pair about 2 months ago, and I got tangled with an underwater log, the log won!! It came with a patch kit. But the directions don't make any sense!!

It's a stupid question I know

if it is just a tear then use the glue it comes with to fill the gap and then put the two edges together and allow it to fasten together.

if there is a hole, you just cut out a piece of the patching material that will fill the hole correctly and glue the patch into place. there might be some adhesive material you iron on over this patch to fasten it more securely as well.

Neoprene waders are crap as far as I'm concerned but I continue to patch mine and use them because they are the only thing that will keep me warm during my ice-breaking hunts.

Good luck with the patching!

shoe goo is my best friend when it comes to my waders and any rubber boot for that matter.

I got some stuff from cabela's, like aquaseal or soemthing like that. It can patch rather large holes with no patching material.

      nephew was fishing a bobber and had another hole about 4 feet away. dropped the vex in and saw a mark and said, I'll get that crappie. Wham!  thought it was a northern. wrapped into his bobber line and had a great fight.  totally surprised when the perch popped up the hole. lol

      Hey, I expressed what I have heard from the locals.   We have been summer folks for quite a while so get some access to the feelings of the locals, like our next door neighbors.      The Landing seems to have made a deliberate business decision to not target local folks but rather upscale tourists.   That is their privilege.    I choose not to patronize them.     As a guy I used to know at IBM said  "that's not the target market".  I am not the Landing's target market.      See you at the Crescent.   (or South Switch.)   (or the VFW in cook for burger night)    Lots of places to go if I want upscale.  Whistling Bird in Gilbert, several places in Ely, etc.

      Plus+1 the lake landings are going to take a huge hit this week.

      Blocks. Make sure it's on blocks. In case it's unclear, use blocks.  I'm more concerned about the accesses than my house. Areas with a slope and melting snow run off are going to be a mess. Add rain to the mix and it's worse. I'll be checking on my house daily and be prepared to make the move off the lake if needed.

      Does the wording even change in the report or just the date?
