    Froze my ass off

    I fished the West Branch 3 weeks ago...air temp 90, water temp 48. After 4 hours up to my chest my teeth started chattering so bad i thought I would need dental work. Breathables with under armour cold gear long johns did not cut it. I took my James Scott neoprenes out of storage (purchased 1983) and patched them up with Aqua seal. Now I'm ready, if the rain would just stop.

    That's funny.I haven't heard the "James Scott" neoprene waders
    Brand in a long time . I bought a pair in 1986 when my Simms neoprene waders sprung another leak fishing the West branch. They were pretty warm ,bright green and thick! I still have mine too!Lol.

    Yep, these waders are thin at 3mm, black neoprene on the inside and you have to turn them inside out, put your feet in and roll them up your legs. A very tight fit but probably a guarantee that you would never drown.
