While fly fishing northern New Mexico’s high country lakes and streams this past summer, I had the opportunity to test the new ultra-light Hybrid High-Top Felt Soled Wading Boots from Chota Outdoor Gear. They performed exquisitely for both kayak and stream fishing. When wet-wading, the side mesh panels keep out debris while shedding water effortlessly. When paired with waders, the sturdy felt soles offer impeccable traction in the stream. The boots are now my go-to fishing footwear.
