A Guide's Wader Repair Advice

June 9, 2010 By: Marshall Cutchin

Arkansas guide John Berry offers a couple of helpful tips for repairing wader leaks, among them using an alcohol swab to locate the leaks, and forgoing Aquaseal in favor of an instant-cure solution like Loon’s UV Wader Repair. “The problem is that Aquaseal takes 24 hours to cure before you can use your waders. That is a whole day. There is an additive called Cotol that can be mixed with the Aquaseal that will cut the cure time to four hours. It is available at local fly shops. Better still is a product from Loon Outdoors, UV Wader Repair.” In the Baxter Bulletin.
