I tried out a pair of Aquastealth boots out when they were first released. The soles work well for all but the rock snot covered stones. The rubber compound does not tear into the rock snot like felt does. If you are a stream fisherman who hikes a lot or fishes in snow, the Aquastealth boot is a good choice.

Got to try these boots out yesterday, and man are they comfortable and light weight. Not as good as studded felt for the slime but a decent all around boot, I would definetly recommend them to any one though.

Kruggy, Have you tried them on the slate bottom streams yet? I have looked at them, but know one I talked to knew if they tested them on streams like the "V" and Elk Creek in PA.

I'm assumming that they are both a wading & hiking boot. So what did they set you back? They usually run out at about$130.

HuronRiverDan, If you mean those big flat rocks in the river that get slippery, Yeah we walked over a few and they didnt seem to bad there wasnt a hard current which could of made a difference.



Dryrod, I got them for just over $80, they were on sale at our local fly shop.
