Tackle week 2019: The year’s best new fly-fishing gear


Best Wading Boots



Created in collaboration with boot maker Danner and outsole experts Vibram, Patagonia’s new Foot Tractor wading boots are made from 1,000-denier nylon and waterproof, non-shrinking, non-cracking full-grain leather. Features include perforated drains for quickly clearing water, and nylon webbing to keep the boots light while maintaining strength and support. The Vibram Idrogrip outsole offers three traction options: sticky rubber, felt or aluminum bars.
