Here is a pic of the stream I was fishing, lots of small pools and pockets in and around the huge rocks, not much wading involved, more like jumping from one big rock to the other. I was using a black wooly bugger

I use it for streamers, and occasionally jigs.  If you don't snug it up it allows a little more lure action.
Knot Again! / Uni-knot...??

Anyone using a Uni-knot???
I don't know how this one slipped by me, but I just started using it this year. It's practically idiot proof to tie, downright stupid simple, once you learn it! Good for backing-line, line-leader, adding a dropper, even tying on a fly!!!
As my eyes get older, and my thumbs get dumber... Seems like the "perfect" knot!!!
The Asylum / Product Review: Soft Science Wading Boots
« Last post by Smokin Joe on October 21, 2017, 10:03:22 AM »
I recently purchased a pair of Soft Science Terrafin wading boots. The company was offering a sale price discount and free shipping, so with nothing to lose I decided to give them a try.

I have taken them on three multi-day fishing trips to the NC mountains so far, and they are now my official go-to wading boots. They are great.

Here is a link to their web page: http://www.softscience.com/mens/fishing/terrafin.html

1. They are very light at just a touch over one pound for a pair. That is about half the weight of my Simms boots.
2. They are very soft and comfortable. Definitely good for an all-day wading boot.
3. Even though the soles are a proprietary rubber compound, they have traction that is every bit as good as traditional felt soles.
4. They dry very quickly.
5. They have a very good drainage system built in so added water weight is a minimum.
6. The soft upper folds to packs easily, and is very tough material that reminds me of the old "ballistic nylon" that was a staple of outdoor gear.

1. The toe-bumper area is minimal, but I am not an aggressive wader so that is not an issue for me.
2. Though they are high-top boots, there is no rigid ankle support other than what is offered by the padded collar and lacing them up.

1. I have not had them long enough to have an opinion about their long-term durability.

Overall: The Soft Science Terrafin Wading Boot is just about perfect for the fishing I do in the NC mountains. I have no doubt that they would serve me just as well in the mountain streams in the Rocky Mountains, or the spring creeks of the Driftless Area. The good traction and light weight make for a terrific combination.

I had a Maine Coon cat that was a "silver" (light gray) and I used his fur for muskrat nymphs for years and years.  Still have some.
