Wading Boots

Wading boots are the must have for the fly angler.  We carry both felt and rubber soled boots with the felt soles being the number one option.  Several States do not allow felt soles so you will need to check on your States laws.  North Carolina, Tennessee and Georgia all allow felt.  Your waders and boots should always be cleaned and dryed after every trip to prevent the transmission of invasive species to other bodies of water.  

For those looking to use rubber soles, there are several options to make them safer and more secure on the water.  One of these options is Rock Treads.

States and Parks not allowing felt include: 

Maryland- Alaska- Missouri- Nebraska- Rhode Island- South Dakota– Yellowstone National Park-
