Re: Vermont BANS Felt Soled Wadding Boots
Better late than never, The Missouri CC approved a reg. change in Aug, 2011 that bans the use of porous soled waders or footwear incorporating or having attached a porous sole of felted, matted, or woven fibrous material when fishing in trout parks and other specific trout waters. The new reg will go into effect March 1 2012. The stuff is called Didymo or Rock Snot
1) Check all gear and equip. and remove any visable algae. Dispose of algae by placing in the trash, not by putting it down a drain or into bodies of water.
2) Then clean all gear and equip. with a solution of 2% bleach, 5% salt water, or dishwashing detergent. Allow all equip. to stay in contact with solution for at least 3 min. Soak all soft items, such as felt soled waders and wader boot cuffs, neoprene waders and life jackets, in the solution for at least 20 min.
3) Or then dry all gear and equip. for at least 48 hrs by exposing to sunlite.
That's the way the bullitin reads. Hope that helps ya guys.
