Look for shoo goo. Or take a lighter and a glue stick and melt it on.
The group ended up with 420 birds.

order some out of cabela's. the best stuff in my opinion is "aqua-seal".
If you don't want to order something go with super glue and duck tape might work but, I don't know how it works on pvc waders.

here is the page that the "aqua-seal" is on.

go to a tire store and get a tire patch repair kit. or you could use some gorilla glue.

Shoe Goo!!!

gossey has hit it on the head with this one. it's actually better on Neoprenes, but will probably work well with your waders too. what would be best for you would be to find those old bicycle innertube "hot" patches. the kind you had to burn on. that would be the best. i doubt a cold patch would hold up that well.

Auto parts store, Red or Black RTV sealant (gasket maker)

I'll get in line with Shoe Goo too. RTV is just cheaper and you can work on your truck too.
