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.

      Had a good day with some good friends today.  Was nice to have a MANY fish day for a change this season.  The crappies weren't the biggest but we sorted through for a decent fry.  The pikers were a nice addition for the last weekend of the season.  We fished from 8 to 22 feet with a vast mix of presentations.   The oddest thing was the start to the day when this button buck slammed into the deck railing and broke its neck while we were getting ready to go out.  We called in for the permit and enjoyed some fresh blackstrap with the fresh fish for dinner.

      That sucks when you lose gear. Tom way to go trying to find the owner of  the lures.
