Look guys while I can appreciate your opinion, I strongly disagree with the assessment of the dangers of wearing waders in a kayak. Having first-hand knowledge, Iíve swam in both neoprene and breathables, I know for a fact itís not an issue. In fact, itís easier than swimming without them.

Flyfish America (the free magazine at fly shops) had an article where they tested nylon, breathable and neoprene waders and found that the ability to swim was in fact improved. Looked for it on their website but itís not there so you have to take my word for it.

Granted, there are exceptions to every rule but, if you are wearing a PFD and a wading belt, youíre going to have to work pretty hard to drown.

Slugs & hisses,
