Well done Greenbay. Great performance. Big game coming up but fingers crossed its SUPER BOWL PACKERS!

Neoprene reel cover

22 December 2016 - 11:54 AM

Has anyone made their own? I have a pair of neoprene waders that are too uncomfortable to wear and was thinking of cutting them up and reusing the neoprene.
For reel cover is it just a case of lots of aquaseal or do stitches need adding too?

Sonic weld waders

22 December 2016 - 03:29 AM

Has anyone used and abused a brand of these sonic weld waders? Looking at the orvis guide silver sonic. Partly because of the orvis guarantee and partly because of their wading boots I have that are holding strong after 10yrs.
Prices here in UK mean Simms are off my radar as are the top Patagonia ones but I am still open to the traditional stitched brands.
Has anyone used the Patagonia skeena river ones??

Cold weather gloves. Ice in the river cold.

Has anyone used the steelhead gloves from kastgear? This last year I've been using a cheap pair of neoprene's over a pair of latex gloves which works a bit.
Previously I've used sealskinz which kept skin dry but the gloves themselves become waterlogged and soon puncture with use.

The other gloves I've been looking at are the musto sailing gloves but they don't have finger openings and look a bit bulky for fishing and reeling and dealing with lines.

Hot glue shrimp/scuds

Hi folks, has anyone used hot glue for Making fly bodies? Do you make the body off the hook and then glue/tie to the shank or build up direct to the hook?
