92---5 Star Rating on Cabela's Dryplus Waders


Guys I got two fly fishing reviews that I want to share with you. I am in the hunt for a new pair of waders, which don’t cost through the roof, but yet will take the wear of a day’s fishing. I think I found the wader in Cabela’s Dryplus Prem Chest Waders. I was really impressed with triple layer knees and the fact that they don’t fit loose to the point where they are baggy. The review on these waders are astounding with 144 reviews resulting in 92 –5 star---36 –4 star—6—3 star and only 6 ---1 star.

 Another item some you guys might be interested in is the new Tenkara Temple Fork Fly Rod in 10 and 11 ft. I recently had a chance to actually get a feel for this rod the other day when I was visiting Riverside Fly Shop located off the tailrace at Smith. It was the first chance for me to pick one up and I have to say I was impressed. The lightness and the sensitivity of these rods are astounding. I am still in the thought stage as to purchasing one.

The generators are running continuous at the lake now and fishing below the tailrace is too dangerous for wading. Randy at Riverside told me the other day that there were 1500 rainbow ranging from 12 to 15” released in the tailrace the other day, so I may get to connect with one soon, once the water levels get back to normal. One of my main objectives this year is to fish the tailrace much more as opposed to last year.

I had to replace a pair of waders last year - leaky at the seams. I hate to pay too much for waders. When I've damaged them, its been in a way that ruins $500 and $100 waders both.

I bought the dryplus after pouring over options. In short, I really like them and my pair has been great. They are tough, they fit me well, they are easy-ish to get on and off, they feel solid. The gravel guards are nice and secure.

I don't like the little pocket but then needed to put my id and license somewhere when it was time to switch to stocking cap fishing this fall and ...used it.

They're nice. I wear 8 1/2 to 9 boots and the feet on these are big. If your wading boots are smallish, consider that there can be excess neoprene to deal with. I have room in the toes of my wading boots and all is AOK.

Full season of use, like 'em.

This is exactly why I do product reveiws on my blog, especially if I am going to purchase a product myself. Thanks so much for the advice and input about these waders. I knew they were good from all the positive reviews, and your comment has convinced me to make the purchase.

I will be doing a post on these waders after I make the purchase, so if you are in the market for waders keep a look out. Thanks for the comment
