You've lost me there, although I suppose it's a question of the interpretation of meaning of the little buzzy creature. ;-)

 

Those long boots pictured, look like waders..... The sort you use when in the river, typically FISHING for salmon in Scotland say, and your bait would be a fly. It's called "fly fishing".  You let the fly rest on top of the water in a fast running river or stream to catch the fish.

YOU remarked .... "Just right for fly fishing." as it happens, (reference above) a completely appropriate comment - even if it wasn't entirely what you meant by the comment ... 

So how surprised was I, and possibly others, when you further commented; "What makes you think I would be fishing?" Well, fly-fishing, is fishing. Why would I (or anyone else) think you meant anything other than fishing? :huh:

Norah Batty style in the first picture! Could they do some chest waders perhaps? All in one dungarees/heels

After reading a promo suggestion these boots look good in jeans and leggings, a commenter asked how the wearer was supposed to use the loo if wearing these? Good point. That's a lot of boot and jeans to be hanging around the knees while sat down. ;)

Better worn by a man, then? -_-

Not an attractive fashion, regardless of the obscene price.

If you really must wear these 'waders', there are some at an affordable (apparently discounted) price here: 

Here is a picture I sourced from that web site:

Used because (a) I doubt the link will work in 2 months, (b) makes life simple (though getting the picture wasn't).

Good find. I won't be buying, but an interesting site that ships to the UK. B)
