  4. The Middle Vedder. Worth the walk?

    Freshwater General Discussion
    Question to all of you who fish the middle vedder runs this time of year. I do not have waders, and I usally short float tipped Jigs or blades. The hike in around twin cedars ( which I did once last year )seems to keep the crowds away just enough to enjoy some personal space on the flow. My...

    So I had canceled all my plans to go fishing today, told 2 people I was not going...had things to do at home. But...I couldn't sleep, body woke me up around 4:30 this morning and felt wide awake. Said to myself screw it I'm going, yanked some roe out of the freezer and packed up my vest and...

  7. Need new waders!

    Freshwater Tackle Talk!
    Hey guys, I need a new pair of waders. I was thinking neoprene, but I assume that breathables are the way to go. My budget is as low as possible! I know you get what you pay for, but I figure if I get a decent product and take good care of it, I should be able to get some good value out of...
  8. Tragedy averted at PegLeg

    Freshwater General Discussion
    I was walking back to my car this morning after a morning fishing at PegLeg when I heard shouts coming from around where I had been fishing. A guy in chest waders had slipped in the water, his waders filled with water and he couldn’t get up. For all the talk of what a “gong show” Peg Leg is...
  9. Waders, waders, waders...

    Freshwater Tackle Talk!
    Looking at the Simms G4, G3 and the Headwaters guys... I like the waterproof pocket on the G4's, but that's not that important, the G3's will probably do the trick. Although, I read an old thread here from KP and he had some issues with them, he gets a lot of mileage as do I, so it does have me...
  10. Newsman's sport fishing column & report

    Freshwater Professional Reports
    Sport fishing column for August 9 to 16, 2010 With another drowning in the Vedder River this past week, I feel some safe wading tips are in order. Neoprene waders fill with water and all others fill with air, when an angler takes a tumble. This makes regaining stability difficult...
  11. Safety

    Freshwater General Discussion
    It was a fine day (Saturday, 07-31-10), and I was fishing with my buddies at Fraser River - Hope :thumbup: My excitement that day turned into fear and worries when one of the guy accidentally drop his sunglasses in the water, try to retrieve it, and almost cost his life when the strong current...
  12. Fix holes in waders?

    Freshwater Tackle Talk!
    I finally located the leak in my neoprene Cabela's chest waders. It's a nice gash near the seam. Looks like I need a patch, not just a dab of glue. What's the best solution to fix these? Where can I get patch material and the right glue in the Vancouver area?
