Pants for Fly Fishing
Trousers of any of the above materials and also of corduroy — the latter if the country is very rough — are suitable. Another very tough material, and lighter than corduroy, is fustian. Knickers or riding breeches are good to wear inside boots and waders since they do away with the bunchy fold necessary when wearing long trousers. Khaki riding breeches of the army pattern have no hip-pockets, a great fault in them for field use but one easily remedied. Corduroy wears like iron but is nasty stuff when wet, dries slowly and is very heavy. Any old pair of trousers will do. Prices for canvas, khaki and duxbak, $3.00 to $3.50.
