Wading Boot Studs: Moron Take Your Boots Off!

Were you raised in a damn barn! How damn dumb to wear your wading boots into a home and ruin the wood floors. Perfect time for those oversized Crocs…yes Crocs…to slip on over your wader’s stocking feet.

Every Day in May Challenge: Waders (Old, Stained & Yellowed)

EVERY DAY IN MAY CHALLENGE FOR BLOGGERS: WADERS

The best purchase I have ever made in all my years of fly fishing. No rod, no reel, no vest, no pack, nothing equals the purchase of my Gore Tex waders quite a few years ago. Closely associated are the best possible boots to go with them. Getting out of those old, foul, smelly, tight, ugly neoprene waders, a supposed improvement over the old rubberized wader of old, was the best thing I ever did.

 Dirtied, soiled, stained…’rode hard and put away wet’ my Simms waders (you can pick your own non-neoprene, Gore Tex brand of waders). Well worth the investment. Nothing worse than trying to shimmy out of those old, wet neo’s on a sub freezing Winter day. Did I mention I hated those old neoprene waders?

Fly Fishing and Safe Wading (No felt, Rubber Soles & Studs)

The fly fishing industry is promoting the enviro safer wading boot with Vibram soles rather than felt soles. Felt has not been universally prohibited just yet. But, recently, I opted for a new pair of wading boots, a pair of Simms Guide Wading Boots with the Vibram soles. The boots come without any studly adornments. MISTAKE!

A few day ago, as I waded along a river as if skating on ball bearing and felt every muscle torqued hither and yon, it occurred to me that perhaps those Vibram soles were not sufficient for safe traction. Obvious you say. Well, they were represented as tacky and adequate to wade by the sales guy. I don’t think he intentionally misrepresented. That was then this is now. Shop owners now have there containers of cleats and studs on the counter and a tool to dispense about ten studs into each sole in a pattern to assure better traction and fewer torn groin muscles and wrenched backs. Currently, I feel like an abused wish bone. Oh, is it true that Patagonia is still only producing felt soles? Really? If so, Yvon get with it.
