Re: Wading boots by shoe companies

I particularly like the look of the lacing system, where you can have a different tension on the foot vs the ankle. Definitely on the list for when my current boots turn up their toes.

On the Double Spey, have you tried a combination of the two?: Start with your feet pointing at the target (duh!) :blush: Rotate your body downstream before you start the move.
