Who needs waders in the Spring and Summer, wear a crappy pair of shoes and some shorts, invest in the waders next chance you get.

you have a very good point. most of the water i fish is easy to go through in summer. especially the salmon , my home creek. and the willamette i ight start leaning to the rod on this one. but then i would not have waders for whewn it got cold again. i would get waders for my b day but i want mto go fishing with metalfisher76... grrrrrr *shoots self*

If ya fish the summer with me you will not need them. If ya come up for winters!!, you will most certainly need them.

Hey Brandon,

What size shoe/boot do you wear? I have an extra pair of chest waders that I have that I would be willing to sell you at a low price. PM sent.

If I can help a guy out so that he can get his waders & rod, more power to him.

brandon, go with the waders bro! They are so nice to have, and not to mention... makes it easier to land your fish, atleast to me... Yes those summer time water levels are nice to have shorts and stuff... but its so nice to ba able to go through trails and not get scratched up. With waders you can get to a lot of really good spots that ppl with out them wouldnt go to. They increased my catch percentage a lot cuz of where i could get to on the banks. I get to fish a lot more water with them to.

GET THE WADERS!!!!!!

same thoughts here waders get hot and stuffy in the summer i am a tackle freak and i wouldnt turn down a rod! plus you never know come summer pawn shops might have some waders on sale cheap or just wait for a sale on them rods dont go on sale nearly as often here in medford last spring i got some new hodgman waders that run about 150$ for 40$ i couldnt get water to leak in them if i treid haha theyre great
