New Simms G3 Guide waders.

In the past I have usually opted for "budget" waders, but have just bought myself a pair of Simms G3 waders to see how they perform (they ended up cosing me around 400 Euros).
Click to visit the Simms product page!

Now these waders cost almost the same as 3 pairs of the Greys GRXi waders I usually use, so time will tell if these prove to be more economical in the long run (I found the Greys would usually last me about one and a half seasons, before barnacles or hooks took their toll - not bad for the price but they don't get as much use with me as they would some other fishermen).

The waders themselves scream quality so hopefully I will get a few seasons in with them. Anyway - a few pics..............

The top (hand-warmer) pocket has a waterproof zip.

As you can see here the seams are well sealed, with junction points having an extra patch seal

Here you can see the patches on the crotch area.

The stocking foot (gravel guards turned up).

Closer view of the stocking foot seals.

The top pocket is even large enough for a lure box.

Here the inside pocket (with integrated zinger, two small & a larger reversed zip pocket.

Hopefully these will last me a few seasons & I'm really looking forward to trying them out.

That's all for now - tight lines all!

Just got the Cobra.

Just picked up a few replacement lures - and a new one for me - the IMA "Pugachev's Cobra".

The Cobra is a small top-water bait & looks as though it will do the trick (weighs in at 12g at 90mm & comes with ST-46 #6 hooks).

 I know a couple of spots where I'm confident this lure will bag a fish or two - take a look at the videos to see the action.

Thanks for reading (again)......& tight lines.
