Okay, if you're new to this whole fly-fishing thing, wading boots serve two purposes(in general): to keep your waders from tearing when you walk, and to give you better traction on the river bottom than you'd have with "normal" boots. Or, in short, to keep you dry and from falling on your face. Find a pair that will give you every advantage to moving upstream without worry about whether you can stay upright and unsoaked. If you're not new to the sport, check out our selection boots to find the perfect blend of stability, weight, drainage/quick-drying materials for you. Or if you're fishing restricted water and you have to worry about transplanting invasive species, we have solutions for that.
