Default OVERSIZE waders....and boots

I've got a friend who wants to trout fish. Big problem so far. His shoe size is 16 and a half. That's right. He's also 6'7". That's right. Where on earth do you look for waders and boots for this behometh? Any help would be crucial to his future as a trout fisherman. The largest size I've seen so far is 14 and that was Simms.

I ran across this once, fit him in the body with the waders & he carried them to a dive shop & had the feet customized, of course, that voided the warranty on the waders

OS Systems makes waders and drysuits and does custom work. Thanks to Grumpy for jogging my memory.

Sounds like my son-in-law, but he doesn't fish- poor man. Simms has a custom shop- go online for their instructions for fitting and ordering; sorry I don't have it. Go to LRO and the folks there might be able to help as they are a Simms retailer.

The Simms guys should be @ troutfest if you could wait til then maybe you could get them to answer your questions. Maybe get a deal too.
