Ok, how are you supposed to clean your waders? I have fallen enough times in mine down muddy banks that they’re pretty stained. I tend to fall on my butt, so those brown stains are a little fishy. They also smell like fish and farts (don’t lie, you all know how bad it is taking your waders off at the end of the day). I have never once cleaned them. I also read that you’re not supposed to wear jeans under your waders. Is this for real? Can denim really damage the insides of waders? Also, my vest is rank with fish. It’s an old fashioned vest. Toss it in the washer machine? I kinda want to preserve that fish stank so everyone near me will know that I’m a bad ass. But, for real, it’s pretty bad.

I nearly spewed beer through my nose! LOL!
I know exactly what you mean about how rank waders can get! When I worked at Tikchik in Alaska, we wore our waders most every day all day long, and the guides DID wear theirs all day, every day!
When the guests came in on the planes and/or boats, we would wader-up to unload them and their fish. Then, we would all grab a knife and clean fish.
It's a wonder we didn't have bears in the camp all the time!
Then, there was the guy that had too much to eat and way too much to drink the night before..... Couldn't get his coat and waders off fast enough.... Ever heard of wader chili? Well, it ain't exactly. Might as well burn them!
