Dressing for Cold Weather Wading

I know this subject has been dealt with off and on a number of times, but thought it was appropriate given the fact that aa April Clave is being planned. So, what do you were when wading in cold weather?

Up until season before last, I always wore stocking-foot neoprenes. I have since bought a pair of breatheables, but have not yet tried them in cold weather. I just bought some additional capilene underwear and some new "Smartwool" socks.

What do you recommend for wearing under breatheable waders? If it is really cold, I would even consider wearing my stocking-foot neoprenes under a pair of lightweight boot-foot nylon waders. I did that once while wading in the Maine surf and it really worked well.

Anyway, I am interested in hearing what you all recommend.
