Several years back I had knee surgery, bought a staff that was 20 bucks cheaper than a folstaff, cracked the first time out. Took it back to Jonas, got a folstaff, been going strong ever since. One of the wiser ff purchases I ever made. You won't regret it.

I bought a Hodgeman folding wading staff about 6 or 8 years ago. I don't know if they still make them but it has served me well. I don't use it much though. I think I paid about $60 for it.

Ditto. $3.00 for a pair at Salvation Army. It doesn't fold, but it doesn't bother me. It floats behind me.

Being an amputee almost demands that i use a staff , i tried to go without one but i have fallen in almost every stream in western Pa. So , i bought this thing called a "Fishing Buddy" it's a bicycle seat on the end on an adjustable pole , not only a wading staff but a good way to sit and take a little break........made in Greensburg , i like it.

With one bad knee and another one going bad, the wading staff is only common sense for me. Ditto the polarized glasses, so you can see where you are placing your feet.

I purchased the Hammer from Amazon and have been very happy with it. I rubbed the sections where it joins with candle wax after having some difficulty getting it apart one day.

The holster did not hold up very well and I have repaired it once. I would suggest reinforcing it with iron patches or something similar.
