I know I never got cold on the river when I was their age! Their enthusiasm and patience reminds me of when I first started being passionate about it. I dont know if encouraging this addiction is a good thing, but I know some of the happiest moments are the ones streamside with the ones you love. So I guess that's worth encouraging until they get older and lose interest. In the meantime, theyre learning that patience and perseverance brings rewards. Something that seems to be lacking in our busy, instant gratification, city lifetsyles.
Thanks for all the help fellas! I appreciate the PMs.
I should've been a little more specific about what I was looking for.
The trout rivers we have close to the cabin have areas with lots of algae. Felt bottoms are a must in some places. Paired with the quick current, those little legs and their overconfidence don't stand a chance!
I got them a pair of simms waders and am going to order a pair of felt booties. I then thought I'd ask the community here before I spent more $ on a new set, if any one had an old pair of waders and felt booties so they each had they're own set.
I'll shell out the $ for a new set if I have too but thought I'd try here first.
Again, thanks to all for taking the time to respond and for the offers!
This is a great place!
