I got a pair of thermal boots, they're like wellies, but with something like a moon boot inner. There's probably something available from one of the mail order lot at a reasonable price at the moment. I wear a normal and a thick pair of knee lenth socks with them and in fairness, even when the rest of me has started to get chilled, my feet have never been cold once.

Put an ordianry plastic bag around your first pair of socks then put another pair of socks on top of this. Always works traps the heat in. Well its what i do [;)]

I think mine are Sunridge thermals. Got them from my local tackle shop for about 40, I think. It was part of a full set of wet weather gear, so I can't tell you for definite, but I'm pretty sure they were around the 40 mark.

There are several moonboots to choose from. Skeetex very warm but have a reputation for being bad to walk in.
Boom 80's very good and not to bad for waliking in
Sundridge thermal boots very good 2 m8s swear by them
Diawa moon boots very good and not to bad for walking in.
I have had both the boom 80,s and diawa boots and have had no problems with them.
Check out your local tackle shop to see what they stock or check out the online shops

chill out go fishing

Sundridge Hotfoot Boots [:D]
They have removable washable liners,and you can get replacement liners if they wear out.
I've had my pair for 2 seasons and havent worn the liners out yet.
Keep your feet warm as toast.[:D]
Cost around 40.

Have had a pair of Neptune Derriboots for the past 4-5 winters, cost around the 40-45 mark.Again they have removable liners and I find them quite comfortable. Never had cold feet in them apart from when I forget theyt arent as tall as waders!

Don't know if it works or not but I was reading an article that said, as most of the cold comes up through the ground, take a old piece of carpet to stand on. Personally I have a pair of Skeetex and they are just fine.

Skee-tex for me.

I don't have to paint an 'L' and 'R' on each boot as they will fit both feet. [:D][:D]

Only down side of these 'furry' boots is when you walk out too far into the water and they fill up! As I experienced on Sunday, couldn't feel my feet by the end of the day..........doh[:eek:)]
