Caddis Wading System ~Diane Hassinger

I love salmon fishing in the fall! Waders can fail over time, and it was time for me to replace my old ones. The Caddis Wading System has a great line designed just for women, that combines both good looks and great function!

The Caddis Women’s Deluxe Breathable Waders are the “ultimate in light weight design”¹ They come in a beautiful teal color with pink trims, but feature heavy duty polyester material, CaddisDry™ Breathable Technology, reinforced knees, all seams are taped, glued and stitched and a high density neoprene sole that is tapered inside and out. There is a zippered pocket, and a new quad pocket. The waders come complete with wading belt and a repair kit. These waders come in sizing from Small to XL in Women’s, Small to Large in Queen and LS to XXLSH in Plus.

The perfect wading shoe to pair with the Deluxe Breathable Waders are the Northern Guide Ultralite Wading Shoes for Women. They are very lightweight at just 1 pound 1 ounce. They feature a one piece sole construction with cushioned collar and insole. They have a durable nylon upper and the convenient speed lace system. Colors are taupe and brown. There are various soles available, including felt and studded.

I wore both the waders and the wading shoes while I was salmon fishing in New York. The first thing I noticed when I put on the waders was how comfortable they were! Usually my waders are to short for my height, or tight on my thighs; neither of these happened with the Caddis

Waders. The wading shoes were oh so light and as comfortable to wear as a broke in pair of slippers! I spend all day, everyday, in my waders when I am fishing, so it is important to be comfortable and not have a ton of weight to tire out my legs or cause cramping.

I put the Caddis Wading System thru it’s paces! I tackled high water, stony bottoms, silty bottoms, I knelt down onto the creek bed, hiked  trails, and pushed thru brush to get to better spots to fish. My waders and shoes handled it all, and came home looking new! I had been worried the light teal color might stain in the silty waters, but that never happened.

I caught many salmon during my 10 day fishing trip. I had a great trip made even better by using quality gear! You can look for me on the trout and salmon streams in my Caddis waders. I will be the one in teal!
