Never thought of that. Hopefully the water is warm enough to go in in shorts anyway. Was last time I was out there so shouldn't need the waders. Although my pictures may be less carpy because of it

they make swimming so much harder if filled with water, and standing up in the edge is impossible.

just make sure you can slip them off if you can't get your ass down and your legs up

I'm not sure it's dangerous at all. Let's say the waders fill with water. The water in the waders is no heavier than the water outside them so how can it possibly drag you down? Just take them off and swim to shore, same as any heavy garment?
As said if anything the air they hold could be used as a buoyancy aid?
Don't get me wrong I'm not recommending boating in waders but I'm not sure it's the death trap people make it out to be. I could be wrong...... and will happily take all this back if someone can explain otherwise?

its safe to go out in a boat with waders, as long as you know what to do.

float on your back and push your bum down, the air in the legs/ass will keep you afloat

I would never do that, I won't be taking the waders anyway, unfortunately limited space in car for the journey limits me to scopes backpack matt and a bit of bait.

to be fair if I need to get in the water can be down without waders, biggest problem with playing from the margins is the reed lined entrance to our bay is quite narrow, i wouldn't want them getting in there as may not get them back. maybe I could anchor the bigger wooden boat there and then wade out to the boat use it like a platform?

Iíd be looking at waders personally. Boats are ****ing hard work on your own. Iíve got a bit of experience now and I wouldnít get in one at night.

If you do get in the boat just make sure no matter what time it is, someoneís watching from the bank at all times when our.

Cheers guys all helpful info. Releasing the carp will be OK as I can wade out to the drop off and set free there. Also have an electric outboard so rowing won't be a problem so could just hold the net then get out when I get to the shall bit I guess and sling the fish and carry to bank to unhook and photograph. I would prefer not to get the fish into the boat as I feel this would be potential for damage to the fish. Also if I hook the big ones. Which I probably won't, they can be around the 70lb mark and I'm not sure I could even lift that from a boat lol.

Hi jack
As the guys have said already but remember if that shallow not to have to much net in the water for fear of fish getting squashed under boat.

Net over the side with the fish facing the way youíre rowing.

Make sure you have a life jacket on and avoid standing up, itís very very easy to unbalance a boat, I very nearly went in a couple of times when re adjusting myself.

Hi Jack,

3 ways I know to do it.

Unhooking mat with sides in the boat if it's big enough.

The other way is to collapse the landing net and use 2 g clamps to attach it to the side of the boat while you row back.

3 depending on the lay out of the swim, use waders to walk out to the drop off to land the fish.

Hope it helps

Best

Jon
