Going to Arkansas to meet up with some buddies to duck hunt next weekend.

Think itís been 2 years since Iíve chased ducks.

I remember my waders had a minor leak in the crotch/backside area last time I went. Any tips on tracking that down and patching it? Neoprene Columbia waders.

I hung up on a barb fence one time in them and used a very tacky duct tape to patch them up and it worked very well...

Turn them inside-out, hang in a tree, and fill with water from the garden hose. You'll find the leaks. If you have or can get one of those white or yellow tire-marking markers it'll make patching easier. You can mark the leaks and then be able to find them again after they're dried out.You may have leaks you don't know about, too. Good Luck!

tenacious tape has really good reviews and is what is recommended on rokslide for patching issues.
