Waders are the longstanding choice for cold-weather gear when it comes to fishing from shore. Aside from the safety reasons associated with the potential of capsizing and having your waders fill with water, it turns out there are more arguments for why drysuits are the optimal choice when it comes to kayak fishing.
After logging more angling days than most, Old Town ambassador Tyler Hicks makes a bold yet well-researched claim. Waders are not being constructed with the durability he finds in the drysuits he puts far more days on. Hicks lays down his full opinion in favor of the build on his Mustang Hudson Drysuit and others in this recent video.
