Went up north fishing recently and forgot my vest at home. I had enough "stuff" in my kit bag to get by. I put a few things in my new wader pockets. After a little while I realized how nice it was fishing without a vest. I did miss a few things, like my net but overall it was great.
Speaking of my new waders. I got the Simms G3's and the waders are great, but the belt that comes with them in my opinion could have been much better. When I put my wading staff holder on the belt it collapsed. I have a pair of Simms waist highs that are 20 years old and the quality in the belt isn't the same. I would thing that a wading belt would be an item that wouldn't brake the bank to produce a little more hefty. This is just my opinion and others may think different.
The fishing was a little slow, but great to be there. I did catch a decent salmon, but the trout were on the smaller side. I should be up there right now :cry:

I picked up the Simms neoprene belt this spring, never been happy with the adjustments on the ones that come with most waders, I love it very comfortable and easy( fast) to adjust. Its wider than the belt that came with my G3's so I do have to slip off buckle to slide a fol staff holster on. Kind of pricy for a belt but well worth it.
