The NZ wading gear is something else, and you hit it spot on. Meny Kiwi's often wade in shorts, long underwear (even nylons as I hear it) and a pair of wading boots. You can as far as I know wade bare legged, but the sand flies would kill you, so you need some protection. And breathable waders haven't made it to NZ it seems...
Nice video of the NZ fellow and the big brown - but why is it every time I see a native NZ fly fisher he, or she, isn't wearing conventional waders? They seem to always wear some sort of long underwear, or tights, wading shoes, and basketball nylon shorts. What's up with that? Is the water so warm that they don't mind wading wet?
