The case for neoprene

Neoprene still has a place in the cold weather angler's closet. Just not the stockingfoot variety.

Bootfoot neoprenes are still the wader of choice for steelhead anglers who don't spend a lot of time hopping from pool to pool. For those guys who stake out their spot and don't budge until the sun sets, they are better off encasing themselves in thick neoprene with heavy insulated boot feet.

Stockingfoot neoprenes are the VHS VCR of the angling world. You can still buy them - and cheaply at that - but their time has come and gone.
