RE:Notes on Wader Selection...
You bet I'll bring my Old Captains to the Cape. I don't know if they'll survive a week of floating the Goodnews in Alaska, but they'll be part of the equipment this summer. The 5 mm neoprene feet might not be best choice in warmer weather but I don't care. I'll bring my Orvis-Clearwaters-Par-72 Waders Anyway.
As far as "goop" is concerned my flyshop carries the stuff under the name aqua"sure" in a green tube. The stuff they sell in the States is called aqua"seal" and is made by the same company. I have yet to find a difference between the products!
