Alaska Bans Felt Soled Wading Boots

Per News from Women’s Flyfishing – Cecilia Kleinkauf editor.


Attention all  Alaskan or Alaska-bound Fly Anglers   

In the interest of  preventing the spread of un-wanted species, Alaska will no longer allow the use of felt-soled wading boots in its fresh-water rivers and streams as of January 1, 2012! Please consider this ample warning that you will be ticketed if you are found to be violating this state-wide ban.


Alaska is one of the first ot ban felt wading boots. Other state bans are coming in 2012 in the attempt to stop spread of invasive species.
