Managed to get a pin hole leak in the bottom of my right boot of my waders on a hunt yesterday. Just wondering if y'all recommend any epoxy or sillicone for a quick, effiecient fix? Thanks

For that... Aquaseal.

I repaired a couple of cuts in boots with an instant patch that has held up suprisingly well.

That is what I would use, see if you can open the hole and get some of that aquaseal inside the hole. That UV Aquaseal may not be the best, needs sunlight to cure.

Flex Seal....the As seen on TV stuff.....spray it on the inside of the leak and the outside
They're not looking for one thing right....they're looking for one thing wrong.

i'll agree with this. flexseal works. Its dicey when you put in a place that you need to be bend or be flexible, but should work well on a boot.

WELD...comes in a tube and sold at WalMart. Self leveling and seals anything. Even fixed a hole in my buddies jon boat.

I used clear PVC cement around the boot inside and out, and up the seams inside. It has worked like a charm.
