Waders:
Most guests prefer Gore-Tex waders. They act as rain pants while in the boats and are by far the most comfortable waders. Plus they breath which keeps you from getting ‘clammy’. Neoprene chest waders are pretty good for the weather conditions in Alaska. Neoprene provides protection from cold water and add a measure of protection in case of a sudden dunking. We recommend a pair of fleece pants under your waders and on the cold days adding a pair of polypropilene/capilene long underwear. You should also bring a heavy pair of socks made of wool or polypropilene/capilene material. Avoid cotton clothing for fishing. Cotton is not a good insulator, is cold when it gets wet, and dries very slowly. In Alaska, the saying goes, “cotton kills.”
