Fly Fishing Rods, Reels & Line : Pick the Right Wading Gear, Waders & Boots When Fly Fishing


Hi, I’m Jim from Zoar Outdoor on behalf
of expertvillage.com. In this segment we’re going to be talking about fishing gear and
especially fly fishing. In this segment we’ll talk a little bit about wading gear, waders
and boots. Generally speaking you have a couple of choices to make, first choice is whether
you want stocking foot type waders which you have to put the boots on such as these. These
are stocking foot type waders, obviously these are pretty old. With the stocking foots you
wear boots, generally speaking at least in the dear field water shed and in New England,
Western Massachusetts, felt is good because it grips the bottom. Alternately you can buy
felt boots with studs, these are carbide studs on them. This particular model is a Simms
L2 size 10 wading boot. Generally speaking when you buy these boots you should try them
on before you make the purchase. The sizing varies quiet a bit by manufacturers, so it’s
real important that you try it before you buy it or make sure you have an exchange privilege.
The alternative to stocking foot waders as these are called is the boot foot wader in
which the boot is an integral part of the entire system. In this case I got a felt sole
without the studs. That’s an important thing to consider if you’re going to go fly fishing
in a boat with a guide, you should never ever wear studs in any kind of a boat because it’ll
tear the boat up and do damage. On the other hand you can certainly wear this kind of a
felted wading shoe.
