Re: Which New Wading Boot?

I like the Simms Guide boots, They have lasted longer than my previous Korkers. I like the feel of them and with the studs they works on slippery rocks.

Re: Proper Reel for hardy 9ft6wt Zenith

I think the 5000 should be the right size for the 6wt, but if you don't like the look or feel of it go with something else. I would look at other brands as I don't think the 4000 is big enough.
