Good old felt for me. I can think of a few places where spikes would help, but felt covers 90 per cent or more.

Felt with studs. I love them. Regular old felts weren't cutting it at the salmon river, so I got a studded pair. I wore them a few times in PA and found that I like them. They are great for stepping on slimy wet logs and whatnot to climb up a steep bank, and I never slip in the stream around these parts.

Felt with studs also.

I tend to fish more in larger waters with slimy rocks.

felt with studs - great grip, but considering studded aquastealth in order to do my part to decrease the spread of invasive organisms.

I am assuming by rubber you mean Aquastealths. I love the studded Aquastealth soles.

It only took one day on Penns with rubber soles to convince me that felt with studs are the way to go. I have two pairs, one Orvis and one Korkers. I went on a trip and forgot my wader bag so two pairs of wading shoes and two pairs of waders.

I have these...

Orvis Ultra light wading shoe
Felt just because I didn't really think I need studs. I don't really know how great these are because of winter I've only been out once in the past two months. And got skunked and discouraged. But they were comfortable for the one trip

went out west with my felt and was falling over the place, extremely slippery rocks. had a blow out and had to buy a new pair. only thing i could find in my size were chota studded felt. WOW i was able to run on those same rocks without falling. never went back. now i also hve the korkers with interchangable soles. nice to be able to chnge for conditions, especially for winter fishing, not having snow builod up on the felts or to walk in with rubber luga and fish with studs.

In the 90's (while in college taking Hydrology and Hydrogeology), I had a pair of felt hip waders. They rotted out by the late 90's. When I went to purchase a pair of waders and boots (I was told to by them seperately), I was also told to get the rubber soled boots because of the "whirling (sp?) disease" that affect the fish. I was told that the felt bottoms absorb the disease and you can contaminate another unaffected stream.

Maybe I'm wrong, but this is what I was told to do a few years ago.

Dear rscheckler,

You didn't have the choice, all of the above so I didn't really answer the poll.

I use felt, studded felt, and studded Aquastealth. Of the three I use the studded Aquastealth most often followed by the studded felt. I find that studs are required for sure footing on most of the streams that I fish and really only use the plain felts when float tubing or wading in a lake.

Regards,
Tim Murphy

Felt, but thinking of trying the Aquasheaths.

Depends on the stream, but it's either studded felt or studded Aquastealth.
