Im looking at buying a pants for fishing and there is different types and price range so I need HELP!
I don't go fishing in winter usually start in December till April (live in Taranaki) so the pants is mainly to keep me warm in the chilly morning and from th cold water splash.
The two big option are
-legging like :
Sharkeskin prerformance pro long pants
Gul hydroshield pants

-splash pants like
Gul ballistic trousers
IR sypher drypants

I also have a small budget around $150-200
Any advice is welcome
Thanks :y:

Some discussion around the forum, some of it in the link. I use the Lovigs mentioned. I fish further south than you and they are the bees knees.
