OK, don't get me started on the states that are banning felt-soled wading boots. Too long a discussion. I, however, will be in full compliance with the new regulations. For short money I had my nice (long dollar), broken-in boots resoled with Vibram lug soles. The boots works great. Stomping with joy. Go to a shoe repair place. They will sand off the felt and install the new sole. End of story. Sorry not to be adding to the pockets of the boot manufacturers. You thieves know who you are.

This photo was sent to me by Frank Johnson, famous Big Horn River Guide, showing the snow-pack in the mountains. The snow-fall was 250% of average. There has been lots of low-land flooding due to heavy rains of 7"-10" in just a few days. This is an area which gets 14"-15" annual rainfall.Frank says, "The Big Horn is running at 14,000 cfs, which is the highest it has been since the dam was built in 1968. The flows will increase over the next couple of weeks. We are very concerned about more serious flooding and damage." Hang on. It'll be a wild ride in the Hyde.

This is an unique silicone floatant that works wonders on all dry flies and it lasts forever. Works extremely well on CDC and Snowshoe rabbit flies; will not mat down the fibers. This is the one floatant that won't let you down or let your flies sink.
