John Norris Sees Demand For Waders Increase After Heavy Rainfall

John Norris of Penrith, the UK's leading country clothing and fishing tackle retailer, has seen a significant increase in the demand for its range of fishing waders after much of the country was hit with a month's worth of rainfall in just 24 hours.

PRLog - Sep. 26, 2012 - PENRITH, U.K. -- Rain continues to fall in many areas and the retailer has taken a special order from the emergency services, as ongoing efforts are made to battle flooding in the country's worst hit regions. While waders are traditionally bought by fishermen standing in rivers, their waterproof qualities are providing extremely helpful in these awful conditions.

Hundreds of homes have already been evacuated up and down the country, after strong winds and heavy downpours hit north Wales, northern England and Scotland. Since then, The Environment Agency has issued a further 75 flood warnings as well as more than 120 less serious flood alerts, with the Midlands, parts of Wales and southern England all expecting bad weather.

John Norris stocks a wide range of waders from leading brands including Greys, Snowbee, Simms, Ocean, Vision, Redington, Leeda and Guideline. Among their collection are bootfoot chest waders, stockingfoot waders and thigh waders, all of which are popular among fly fishing enthusiasts.

However, in conditions such as those being endured by the UK, waders can prove essential in battling through weather. The emergency services may need to get to people who are penned in because of deep waters, while homeowners may need to sift through the damage caused within their property. In either instance, waders could be of considerable assistance.

Prolonged exposure to cold water can also cause infection as well as other health complications, so being protected by waterproof material, often made from a synthetic rubber such as neoprene or PVC, can be vital in maintain the body's natural temperature during wading.

John Norris is currently running a sale across many of its products and has a number of waders retailing at discounted prices. For example, its Leeda Neoprene Chest Waders are down from £69.99 to £54.99, while its Greys G-Series waders and G-Series boots offer available for £149.99 – a £64.99 saving on the original price when purchased together.
