I've been fly fishing Ore., Wash., Ida., for about 50 yrs. mostly on foot. Consequently, I dont have much experience wearing waders in a boat. I recently bought a Creek Co. 8' pontoon boat for lake fishing. As far as waders, I have Simms Goretex and Cabela's 3mm. neoprene both pairs are stocking foot. My question is, are there some dos and don'ts concerning waders and foot wear while fishing in a pontoon boat? How important is a waist cinch strap?
