So I'm in the garage looking at my old Simms Stocking foot waders. The legs are fine, but the heels are shot, been patched way more than I care to admit. At the same time I'm looking at new raingear for hunting, I really hate to waste this good gortex that is actually waterproof, unlike hunting gortex. So I'm thinking that cutting off the feet and making them into pants would be a good idea. They're lite, waterproof even in the brush and take a beating real well. Only problem might be that the salmon spawn goo all over them might get me eaten by a bear. Other than that I think they'll be fine, anyone tried it yet?
