Fishermen simply did not wade prior to the Civil War. One 1828 fishing writer stated fishing and drinking are the devils decoys and warned of the adverse health impacts from wading. Americas Fishing Waders follows the development of waders through the history of Hodgman Rubber Company (Hodgman). Hodgman was founded in 1838 and has been a consistent provider of fishing waders for over 120 years.

Key elements of this book include:

  • The development and history of different types of waders (i.e., rubber, plastic, nylon, neoprene and breathable)
  • A foreword and other information from Ron Fosterowner of Hodgman from 1979 to 2005
  • An analysis of current and expected future developments in waders
  • 150 photos and/or graphics (most of which are historic in nature)

This book will be of interest to any fisherman who has waded or plans to wade in the pursuit of their favorite sport fish. It also will be of interest to all fishermen wanting to better understand the history of their sport.
