Song for those with Leaky Waders
« on: Oct 05, 2020, 08:32 PM »
These are lyrics (sung to the tune "A Man of Constant Sorrows" from O Brother Where Art Thou?) that I found on another fishing website - - and can most certainly relate to:

     In constant sorrow through his days

      I am a fly fisher of constant soggy bottoms
      I've seen trouble all my day
      I bid farewell to old Kentucky
      The place where I was born and raised

      The place where he was born and raised

      For six long years I've been fly fishing
      No pleasures here on earth I found
      For in this world I'm bound to be soggy
      I have no friends to help me now

      He has no friends to help him now

      It's fare thee well my old waders
      I never expect to see you again
      For I'm bound to be wet forever
      Perhaps I'll die with wet bottoms

      Perhaps he'll die with wet bottoms

      You can bury me in some deep valley
      For many years where I may lay
      Then you may dare to wade again
      While I am sleeping in my grave

     While he is sleeping in his grave

      Maybe your friends think I'm just a wet wader
      My soggy bottom you'll never see no more
      But there is one promise that is given
      I'll meet you on God's golden shore

Hahaha!  I live this life.  Every simms wader I have ever owned has leaked at the seams.  Freestones, g3's and now I'm on to g4's.  If they leak...I quit simms.

Way ahead of you. So far, very impressed with LL bean. Going on season 5 with no leaks.

Ditto, gave up on Simms with my last pair.  The construction doesn't warrant the price.  The Redington Sonic Pros have been wonderful so far.  I have friends that swear by the LL Beans as well.  I've been very happy with their rods and they have no issues replacing them if you damage one, at zero cost to you.

Apparently I just like throwing my money away.  Oh well!
