I've set my TT up at a campground in an area of Western NC with some fine trout fishing streams. There are several very good fly fisherman in the campground and they've offered to try to "show me the ropes."
Over the years I've accumulated the tackle and have done a little fly fishing but it was mostly popping bugs in farm ponds for brim and bass.
One thing I haven't got is a set of waders...My new fishing buddies have suggested I get some. They all wear hip waders of some sort. Some with boots attached and others with stocking feet....I don't want to get too heavily invested until I'm sure this is something I'm going to be sure I'm going to "take to it."
I'm leaning towards stocking feet with a separate wading boot.
I'd sure appreciate some advice on some modestly priced attire. I'd prefer to keep it around $100 -/+ (if possible) in case they wind up in the closet with all the other hobbies I've begun and left behind.
