Default New Location - Good News/Bad News

I was lucky enough to learn about a new location from a friend so I headed out in search of wild browns.

As I was hiking into the river I was happy to see that the only trail was a not so used deer trail. The feeling of being able to fish a river that doesn't get a lot of pressure was awesome. I got to the river and hit the first good looking pool, then moved upstream losing 2 fish on the way. The great feeling of fishing a river with little pressure quickly turned to a feeling of holy crap this is one tough area to move through. Steep rocky banks, thorns everywhere, downed tress etc.

I got to the next hole and was rewarded with a beautiful NJ brown that slammed a streamer almost as soon as it hit the water.

I fished for about another hour until this happened. I was standing on the steep hill about 10 feet about the river when the dirt I was standing on let lose and down I went. I stood up only to find a 4" tear in my waders! Guess it is time for some new ones.

Here is a photo of the only brown I was able to land.

It was a strange fall, I basically just sat down, only slide about a foot.

I think I'm going to try and repair them but I never patched a tear before only small punctures.

Same, I would try folding it on itself with some aqua seal/shoe gloo in the middle. Then once it dries apply a wide coating on both sides, maybe multiple coatings.

Thumbs up Re: New Location - Good News/Bad News

Taking your lumps for a nice fish, guess it equals out but good waders are so darn expensive.
