I remember there was talk of a general ban on felt soles in PA several years ago.

chest or pants style stocking foot waders. Matched with studded felt soles have been the best i have found for really slippy streams and rivers. Just watch yourself in mud or snow, felt can get alittle slippy in those conditions. A wading staff is also a very good idea, 3 points of contact is always better then two. Collapsable staffs are nice since you might not always need it, But packs down small so when you do you actually have it with you and not back in the vehicle.

You can get multi-purpose staffs - with attachment turn your wading staff into gun monopod, camera monopod, plus staff can also be used for hiking and self defense. A true four season tool.

Anyone ever use the suits you wear a wet suit under regular clothing... I use them a lot in Texas when I hunted ducks...Of course the weather around Corpus Christi Texas in November was warm.

Back in the old days, guys used to make impromptu cramp-ons out of beer bottle caps. A buddy of mine made several sets. They were two bottle caps with leather straps riveted to them. The caps were about three inches apart. He'd tie them around the front part of his boot. The rough bottoms of the caps would provide a pretty sure footed grip. These things would last about a season and then another set would have to be made, but they worked and cost nothing to make. This guy always had a ready supply of bottle caps if you catch my drift.
