    Default Good day at the fly shop

    Well I dragged family to the fly shop today to give them ideas for Christmas gifts for me. I know that a pair of Simms G3 waders and Rivershed boots left the store in my mom's car and possibly a new Fishpond pack. Since I won't have my hands on those until Christmas I had to buy something for myself as well so I picked up a Brodin Gallatin Net. All and all it was a very good day

    Tuck: Sounds like you did have a good day at the fly shop! You should be in good shape for fishing after xmas, you can't go wroing with Simms and Fishpond gear.

    Yea now the hard part is trying to wait until Christmas to use them. I have been wearing the same pair of Reddington waders for around 10 years and they have started to take on some water so the waders are much needed. I have had my eye on the Simms for quite some time so I am pretty excited.

    I bought the Rivershed boots this year, and OH MAN! They're nice!!! They
    felt a bit stiff on the first few outings, but quickly wore in to a glove like
    fit. It might be worth mentioning that my previous boots were the heel and
    separate bottom sole type. The large flat bottom of the Rivershed felt good
    and bad at first, and walking over scattered baseball size rocks was strange.
    That went away quickly as well, so if you experience any of this, just go
    fishing a few extra times.

    Tuck,

    You will like the waders, I have a pair but have only had them a few months. I will give them the test this spring and maybe a few trips down the Peninsula if the weather mellows enough to fish it.

    Frank,
    I am glad to hear that you like your Riversheds. To be honest I almost did not buy them because of how stiff they felt. I am glad to hear that they loosen up some with wear. Walking around the store they weren't really comfortable but the ankle support is what sold me on them. Look forward to trying them out. Will definitely be interested in seeing how the Vibram soles feel compared to felt.

    Tuck! You just reminded me about why I bought another pair of boots: my
    ankles were getting sore. The Riversheds solved that issue so well, I completely forgot!
