That is a somewhat touchy subject. BREATHABLES, but I think everyone has their preference. For me it is Orvis, Simm's and William Joseph.

Boots, I have often thought that the waders with the boot attached would be nice, but if one wears out faster than the other, you have to replace both.
I also think FELT SOLES are going by the way side. To the point they COULD be outlawed in the future.

Well its hard to tell you what flies to use without knowing what you fish you are chasing, but a box of wooly buggers in diffrent sizes and clolors are always a good strating place. Those flies will catch anything that swims man.
