totally see your point... glad all is healed, and yea, daily meds of any sort can be a bummer, especially if they are no fun.

I would still get them with felt soles, or anything else besides the rubber cleated soles. You can fall in a small stream just as easily as in a large one

If you need something as high as hippers you might as well throw on your breathables...get a pair of muck boots for your trunk. You can cross most streams at somepoint in them.

Hippers rot and leak. Ask my kid. (fished for three hours with water to his knees without saying a word)

Dear Tom,

I have to respectfully disagree with you.

Ninety percent of the streams I fish can be fished to one hundred percent of my capacity using only hippers.

With that thought in mind I bought a quality pair of breathable hipboots from the evil Empire, AKA Orvis. I find myself wearing them more and more with each passing year.

Should anyone who already has wading boots desire a quality pair of hipboots I will recommend without reservation that you look at the Orivs Endura breathable hipboots.

Their best, but by no means their only, redeeming quality is that if you are a larger than normal person they are generously cut in length, width, and breadth.

For the first time in my life I can wear hipboots that fit properly and give me ample time to pause and reflect on whether it's worth soaking the "boys" for that fish on the other side of the creek.

That is a luxury I don't for one minute regret.

Regards,

Tim Murphy

Yep.
Really.

I'm a hip boot fan and if for no other reason than I can usually take a "squirt" with out looking for a place to set my fly rod, hang my vest, blah, blah blah...

And its pretty handie to tuck my reel/ handle into the top of my boot while I gather a pinch of tobacco, or retie my leader. Come on Jay, come back over to the dark side.

Honestly, hip waders are the best choice for mucking around spring creeks and some small streams.


I just bought a pair this fall, they are more convenient than chest waders when you need to be more mobile.

I bought them for my canoe trip in October and they've come in handy since then. Hodgeman rubber soled at Wal-Mart for like $25.

Haha! Jay,

Just don't bring those things up on the Savage, you'll get chewed up and spit out in short order.
