Visit Our Store

As well as an online store we are also a physical store, fly fishing school and guiding business. You are welcome to come and visit us in the Nire Valley Co Waterford. We have a huge range of products on display in our store!

Picking waders to suit you

We sell waders too suit every budget, so how do you know which ones suit you? If you are doing a lot of fishing then choose one of our more heavy duty pairs. Often cheaper waders are a false economy and do not last as long as the tougher more expensive models. If you need advice on size or fit give us a call or email us. We will do our best to help you select the waders that best fit you.  


We stock waders from top brands including Simms, Patagonia, Orvis, Guideline, Vision, and Wychwood


Choosing the correct size wading boot

While wading you spend all day on your feet! Comfortable and well fitting boots are essential. For most Irish rivers we advise rubber soles or rubber soles with studs. For very slippery and rocky bottomed rivers we advise felt soles - however these are slippery on mud and wet grass!


For correct fitting always ensure that you select boots one size above your normal shoe size - ie if you wear a UK10 then select wading boots in UK11/US12.

Choosing the correct size waders

It is important to have the right size of waders to get their maximum performance. For example, if your waders are too small it will stress the seams too much and create a great risk of leakage. The first step in choosing is to find out your type of waders. We have grouped them for Standard, King, Long and Short sizes. If you are of average build, start with Standard sizes. For slimmer and taller builds try Long and for heavier builds use King sizes.
