Wading Gear That's Functional

Wading Gear That's Functional

If you fly fish in rivers and streams, you're constantly on the move, hiking to and from different locations, wading rocky shorelines, bogs, sloughs, and sometimes navigating difficult terrain just to get to and from your favorite fishing spots.

Functional wading gear helps you do all that and catch more fish, because you're more comfortable, you can stay on the water longer, and make the most of your time while you're out there. But even more important, good wading gear helps keep you safe by keeping you upright, and keeping you dry in a variety of conditions. Let's take a look at some different wading systems that cover all the seasons, and all kinds of rivers.
