Default Repairing small hole in rubber waders??

Remove this ad.....
become a Supporting Member today.
I stumbled on an old piece of barbed wire fence fishing with Troutking last week and put a small hole in the top of my right foot. The hole is maybe 2 or 3mm in size... just big enough to get my foot wet. Are there any proven methods for patching a set of rubber waders? Like I said, it's on the top of my foot... so it's not in a spot that gets bent and kinked much.

Mike

Get those babies patched up we actually have to land a few this weekend!

Have you tried the regular wader pathes? You can pic them up a Meijer for like $5...

I have patched mine with a tire patch. Just make sure to rough up the area around the hole good because waders are usually really smooth.

I bought some wader patch the other day and it worked like a charm! I was in the water within 30 minutes and didnt get wet. I bought it at the hesperia sportshop. Goop will work too. I hate soggy sock sindrome

Patch rubber or nylon waders with a tire repair kit, GOOP. I've even used the flexable Hot Glue sticks. Duck tape works in a pinch!

Glue the hole closed, cover the area with glue/patch. Then to add some protection and strength I'll cut a piece of denum/blue jean matieral apply more glue and cover this over the whole patch area with it. Works great!

So this sounds doable then. I actually have a tube of Goop... I'll bet that with a small piece of rubber will do the trick.

RTV = "Room Temperature Vulcanizing" material - You are correct, and yes it will!

with rubber waders i use a fishing worm. All you have to do is mark the hole use a lighter to heat up a rubber worm and dab it on the hole and it seal up water proof and all.
