About this title

Synopsis:

Fishermen simply did not wade prior to the Civil War. One 1828 fishing writer stated,"fishing and drinking are the devil's decoys" and warned of the adverse health impacts from wading. 'America's Fishing Waders' follows the development of waders through the history of the Hodgman Rubber Company. Hodgman was founded in 1838 and has been a consistent provider of fishing waders for over 120 years. The key elements of the new book include: The development and history of different types of waders, il.e. rubber, plastic, nylon, neoprene, and breathable; a foreward and other information from Ron Foster, owner of Hodgman from 1979 to 2005; analysis of current and expected future developments in waders; 150 photos and/or graphics (most of which are historic in nature).
