A new tip is on site regarding taking care of your wader zips and a new process  Chris has developed if all else fails. It can be read  Here

 If you have forgotten what a salmon looks like, check out the video I've  uploaded. Taken by Dave  , somewhere on Upper Deeside--Here .   Lots of waders are  arriving requiring  servicing for the new season but  many are are  arriving  unwashed   which  is  required to keep your waders in good condition as per the instructions on the label,  so please wash them  before you send them to us, if neccessary ! 

However the biggest issue is waders arriving with no enclosed note which means we cannot get in touch with the customer.  In our latest delivery for instance, which occurs everyday , three packages did not have any details whatsover . Please see the link below for details on how to send them to us..

phone  07970041452 - Monday - Friday, between  0900 to 1700 only please,  email  out with these times

Due to the disruption this causes in future we will not begin any  servicing, repairs etc if no written  note is enclosed within the wader package. It is appreciated this could cause delay but the  time in resolving this issue is huge and simply prolongs the whole process. Thanks! To assist  a printable repair proforma has been introduced  to use when sending us waders for repair--Here . A word of thanks, there has been a huge increase in the use of the proforma, it makes a huge difference

Unfortunately we currently have a large number of unpaid waders following their completion. This is  causing us logistical problems therefore we have introduced, with immediate effect,  a storage charge of £10 per month if repairs remain unpaid for longer than three months following completion.

Why not purchase our unique water repellent "Repel" here's a link to purchase the 4-bottle option from Ebay   For further details and options check out our Repel page

Remember we have a 2 years wader warranty on all new waders we sell, unique in the industry! Full details on our wader sales page.

We take the time to match you to waders that suit the use you plan to put your waders to, and then match you to a wader that fits you properly. If no waders will fit off the shelf, then we can alter them to make them fit you, and we do all of this at very reasonable prices. If we have a used wader that fits your needs then we are happy to deal with these as well. 

We offer a unique water repellent, repel by Diver Dave, that enhances breathability of your waders and jackets, and makes water bead and run off. it works on all fabrics, including goretex.

And of course we repair all makes, models and brands of waders., everything from a single pin hole, a barbed wire rip, to hundreds of pin holes and all seams leaking, doing this using a unique process developed from the commercial and recreational diving industries.
