Two weeks ago, I did a little scouting in dry marshes while wearing my neoprenes. It was a tight fit but I made it work. Yesterday I suited up again complete with cargo shorts, a light hoodie and a lot of sweat and groaning. But I did it and and got some rat traps out.

This morning I opted to go with semi-long underwear, no shorts, and the hoodie AFTER I got the waders on. We used to say things shrunk in the dryer. NOT anymore. My wife met me in the garage after I got out of the waders. Her comments made the whole situation funny when she ‘put me in my place, saying “nice legs, shame about your face! “.

We both laughed. I have some work to do to get into these waders yet this season!

Never too old to learn
