old waders... any use?

Recommended Posts

So I've amassed a collection of non-repairable canvas and neoprene waders.

Any thoughts on recycling these, other uses?

More patch material than I'll need in a lifetime.

I took one pair that the upper part had gone bad and cut them down to a pair of knee high mud boots. I have some now that are cut to ankle length that I can stomp into to go out on the lawn on wet mornings.

If they are not too heavy, they make good rough duty rain pants.

I second the idea of cutting them down for knee boots to deal with wet walks to the deer stand. In fact, if they are size 13's or so, I would be happy to take a pair or two off your hands.

I worked at a butcher shop and they worked great if you cut them off below the knees.

I cut mine down to hip boots and strung shoes laces through the upper leg to keep them from falling down, works great. I also used some left over neoprene and made some camo can coolers as a joke gift for my hunting buddies.

Thanks for the ideas! Likely perfect to cut a pair down to hip boots and store at the deer shack. Heavy rain years make a couple of the trails woodland sloughs.

For the old ones that boots are shot maybe a motor cover out of the uppers. I've never been able to part with $25.00 for a motor cover!

Getting itchy. Opened up the deer shack this past weekend and a thunderstorm came through Sunday a.m., no time for the shooting!

My shoulder needs a little kick!

      Green has some nice gills. Glad to hear they are biting

      I’m wishing you luck my friend. It’s hard to get away and it can be very deflating when the weather doesn’t cooperate.

      Hit Green for a couple hours this afternoon, almost zero traffic and the sunnies were active. It’s nice to see this lake is back!

      Was out for a while on the Partridge River this afternoon, didn't have any minnows, managed one 13" crappie on Gulp waxes.  But, the old Strikemaster almost bottomed out-close to 30" of ice.

      I don't know what your Helix 7 requires in the manual, but a quick look would figure out if that 3amp is too small. Definitely wire your sonar to the motor battery using the correct gauge wire and fuse. If you connect it to another battery, it should be a stand-alone. Connecting to the trolling motor battery will generate interference.

      I've done cheeks quite a few times and they are always good. They take only a few seconds to carve out. I like to get the most out of the things I kill to eat, so I'm not afraid to pull them out of smaller ones. I'm glad to see that so many people picked up a new tip. That's the point of congregating on these forums. I wonder how many non-registered folks will read this and learn something new.

      I've been doing them for many years.  Like Cliff, a friend who was a guide on LOW brought some out prior to the main course-been doing it since.

      With the snow cover completely gone and lots of standing water, 60s in the forecast, with plenty of sunny days next week, and a good chance of rain mid-week; this may be my last weekend on the ice, South of Hwy 210 anyway . Fish have really been on the chew

      hey guys..i installed the helix 7. took it out the other day. it keeps  randomly shutting down, with the motor off it will stay on no problem. Heres where i think i f'd up. i used the same 3 amp fuse harness from the old sonar that came with the boat, the old hb depth only kind. its wired right to the ignition wire. i used the correct gauge wire where i needed it. im guessing its not getting enough juice? also if i wired it direct to a separate battery, how do i go about hooking up and on board charger? or would i be ok just wiring direct to the battery that runs the motor? thanks for any advice. those musky lures look so bad ass! nice work !!
