Re: Felt or Rubber Sole Boots .. An Open Can of Worms
First let me say that I certainly don't want to be the one that infects a stream with invasives.
But, I'm not at all looking forward to giving up my felts.
I like remaining vertical.
I've tried Vibram soles. Don't let anybody kid you, it's not the same.
Third, I'm not too thrilled about having anyone tell me what I can or can not wear while I'm fishing. (rant edited )
Vermont goes "feltless" next season and I will comply with their laws. They do have a didymo problem and I won't be the one to make it worse.
However, when and where ever it's legal, I plan on wearing my felts
