Stop Slipping and Sliding
Most anglers that I know and I can certainly tell you that I’m in that category will tell you that at times fly fishing a river boils down to good positioning of yourself to make good accurate cast. Problem is that the river has a lot to say about that. Most if not all the rivers that I fly fish are as slippery as snot on a rock. I have found myself on too many occasions on my back staring at the sun because of a slippery rock. I don’t think this is an unknown phenomenon to wading boot makers. They simply want to make a wading boot as cheap as they can so there is more markup for them to profit. If they were concerned about your health all wading boots would have aluminum bars or discs on them to prevent you from slipping .
Fortunately for us there is a company out there that does care. RockTreads has developed an aluminum disc that you yourself apply to your wading boots or wading sandals that all but puts slipping on rocks a thing of the past. I have been wading with aluminum on my boots now for about 3 years and have not slipped once. By having a good secure footing in the river, it makes the wading part a lot easier and you can be even more effective if you add a good wading staff to your RockTreads. Get a set and tell them Mike sent you.
