What Makes Fly Fishing Boots Special?
Providing traction on underwater surfaces isn't the same as providing it on dry land. That's why old-school fly fishing boots featured felt soles -- that slick material grabs on nicely to slimy rocks and stones when submerged in water. However, felt-soled boots can cause environmental damage, and felt fishing shoes are now banned in many localities. Instead, we offer rubber soled boots, including some with aluminium studs. The special rubber used is designed to provide exceptional grip when wet. This helps provide traction both on dry land, in the snow and on the stream.
