    Default Fishing Socks

    Just a tip lads,as I see in another thread a discussion about electric socks,the best socks I've ever worn are a brand called Redhead sold by BassPro in the states ,their 90% Merino wool and 10% spandex and treated with silver something or other that stops your feet stinking (and I tested a pair for a week ,and it works).
    These cost about $10.00 and have a lifetime guarantee ,I've paid up to E40.00 here for Merino socks ,that are not nearly as robust or warm ,they have kept my feet toastie on the coldist of days.
    and in August.... the barley grew up out of their graves

    I have tried these socks ,they weren't any better for me ,if your standing in freezing water or have circulation problems the heated socks are the only answer
    When in doubt...exaggerate !!

    make sure youve plenty off room in the wading boots for circulation, one pair of heatholders works for me.
