Crocs are the best for wet wading small streams. You are careful of where you put your feet!

They really are good though for wading. The rubber is very soft and quite nonslip on the rocks. I do suggest the strap be around the back. They are a bugger to retrieve out of the mud though!

Mine are blue, but judging from the success of pink I may have to pick up a pair in that color.

Nice post. Great stream, especially for Arizona. Hard to find one not overrun with people. Seddona area is amazing color country.

Be sure and see Bryce, Cedar Breaks, and Zions too on one of your trips.

Shane, great report! Welcome to the board and put up some UK photo's. I lived in Suffolk County as a teenager and loved fishing there.

They're definitely working for you! But I love my wet-wading boots. My brother, who is a captain in the U.S. Air Forces, got me a pair of flight-surfaces rated combat boots for Christmas last year. That means they're rated to be worn on the deck of C-130 while its wet and in flight. Needless to say, they've got the best wet-traction you could ever hope for. Plus if I don't feel like getting wet, they're gortex lined so I can wade up to 10" without getting wet.

Perfect for small streams, and it means I can wade in my favorite streams in January in Minnesota without waders. I love small streams in winter.

Hi Bob - and hi to everyone on the forum here.

Thank you so much for your kind words, we had some amazing fishing

Those Pink Crocs are legendary here in the UK too... I had black crocs on, and caught around 9, Collette my wife had around 15 or so fish, so I'm with you all on this one... it's the Pink Crocs, not the skill!!!

Those Crocs are coming back to Palm Springs in California next May/June, so look out! I've had some fansastic feedback from a couple of guys re the fishing in that region... but please feel free to point us in the right direction is you would be so kind. Any advise would be very welcome.

Kind regards.

Shane

Awesome posts guys, definitely envious of some of those spots. I live in south central Canada and we lack in the numbers of trout streams. This year has been tough for the rivers; being that is was driest summer on record and many of our small streams are barely trickling. Have had to focus more on the stillwaters...nothing wrong with that...just miss whipping around the 3 wt.
