Rick Watkins of Chota Outdoor Gear talks about a novel new style of waders: the knee-high wader with neoprene booties. The Caney Fork wading sock is 100 percent waterproof, keeps you warm and dry up to the knee. A skin-out neoprene gasket coupled with a nylon cinch strap keeps the top in place just below the knee and slows flooding. They feature a waterproof neoprene sock foot for warmth as well as a wader style “Gravel Guard” that keeps sand & grit out of your boots.
This wading sock is ideal for tasks such as portages, getting in and out of a drift boat or canoe, and other tasks where hip or chest waders are overkill.
