Tucker, David

For a while, I was content to fish from the shore or only wade in a short distance in river shoes. This had a twofold affect. One: I didn’t catch fish. And two: I got cold and wet. Fish-less and uncomfortable is a recipe for quitting the sport, so I decided to get over my overly simplistic kit and get some waders. I picked up some of the most pared-down but functional waders around, the Sonic-Pro Ultra Packables from Redington. The name certainly isn’t misleading; these guys pack into their only pocket, a fully sealed chest-wide number that has more than enough room for a small fly box, some sunscreen, and a few other essentials. This packability makes them a great option for backpacks and other excursions when space is at a premium. The suspenders are adjustable, meaning you can slide a layer under them if the wind kicks up, or shed a jacket and tighten them if the sun starts beating down. The one pocket has an internal clip-in pouch that doubles their storage space if you need more room, or can be left behind to avoid clutter. Available at Grizzly Outfitters. $290; redington.com.
