    1-3 kilo rod

    Ok it’s not worth writing a fishing report . Saturday was a donut morning at west lakes flicking around a tiny Aus tackle black lure I’ve landed bream on in the past . Sunday I hit the northern end of the local third cast with a eco gear 30 something lost a 20 cm ST. The ecogear was gold black orange belly red eyes . Nothing else hit the steps but to much weed . Was a donut but finally I could cast a tiny ecogear lure and get interest .

    Under wader wear

    Just purchased my first pair of waders. A pair of Snowbee 150 waist waders. Just wondering depending on the weather/temp what the wader users on the site wear underneath them when wading. Am prepared for the humerous answers but seriousness will be muchly appreciated. Regards, HBt.

    Under wader wear

    I've worn waders for a number of years now, but have never wanted to fork out big dollars. So I have only use the PVC type. If you have purchased the size above your normal foot size (hope so), then 2 pair of socks is best - as with 1 pair you'll find your feet are not 'snug' fitting, like wearing untied shoes. I wear track pants and always tuck the legs into the socks - this stops the tracky legs riding up your leg when putting waders on. On very cold days I will have some bottom thermals as well. Then I wear an old long sleeved cotton shirt (warmer one on colder days), but if cold but sun is out, I stick with the cotton one. A thin, sometimes a thicker jumper, depending on temperature. Some kind of belt around the waist, just in-case of getting dumped, so I don't fill up with water. Mind you, I'll be walking/casting for a lot Kms over a lot of hours straight, whereas, if you intend to just fishing at 1 beach and move 50 metres now and then - keep the warmer stuff on when it's colder.

    Under wader wear

    If its cold, thermals, wool are better as they don't get as stinky as polyester. Light weight hiking pants/track suit pants. Definitely not denim if your walking any distance in the waders as denim rubs. Whatever you wear tuck them into your socks as Lofty recommends.

    Will be interested to hear your thoughts on your waders after some use. Been toying with the idea of waders or a set of wetsuit bottoms for a while now, for the cooler months. Still not convinced one way or the other. In terms of an inner layer, a thought could be a set of Skins / whatever the appropriate brand is.

    Under wader wear

    If i am fishing the snowys for trout then a good set of thermal pants is a must. Even down here in the South east during summer i will wack of on a pair of thermals if its cold. For a normal night a light pair of tracksuit pants with the ends tucked into your socks works fine. Use to hate wearing shorts in a pair of Hornes waders as they use to not feel right. Would sweat a lot in them when it was warm too (not sure why anyone would buy those Hornes PVC waders anymore?). Now i have a pair of riverworks neoprene's and they feel much more comfortable.
