Some tips for repairing your waders courtesy of Field and Stream circa June of 1957. Luckily I haven’t had any leaks in mine just yet, but I like the idea of fixing them myself so I can afford “five dozen new flies with the money saved.”
The illustrations and text are by Walter Dower, who contributed many drawings/illustrations and stories to Field and Stream magazine in the late 40’s and 50’s. He was also one of the illustrators behind Tap’s Tips, a reoccurring column in Field and Stream, and was responsible for the images in the classic fly fishing book by Corey Ford, You can Always Tell a Fisherman, But you Can’t Tell Him Much.
