    I'm sure I'm not the first one to think of this. My waders have developed several leaks and need to be replaced but there isn't money in the budget to replace them this year. Sooo, I decided to wear waterproof pants under my waders. I hunted slack water today so I didn't get a chance to test my idea.

    Try using bath/shower silicone to seal up your leaks if they aren't to big. Usually keeps water out.

    The rain pants usually help. At least they have for me in the past in your situation.

    I have melted rubber fishing lures over leaky spots with success. Kind of like soldering with plastic.

    That's what I said. I'm paying for two college educations on one income, there isn't much room for fluff. Any other questions?

    There's water, duck hunters, and birds flying around. As a matter of fact we saw hawks, sandhill cranes, kingfishers, brown creepers, and sparrows.

    I use shoe goo on mine. Had a quarter size hole with missing neoprene that got ripped out and it did the trick. Do it in the garage, that **** smells.

    I have never had luck patching! If mine leak they go in trash, try to borrow a set until for the last couple weeks save up for next season. Cold, Wet feet suck!
