Gear Video: Stopping Invasive Species Spread
Orvis product developer Tim Daughton narrates this excellent short video on the proper ways to choose and clean gear to help avoid the spread of invasive species.
Excerpt: “The rubber-soled wading shoes that are on the market today do a great job in not soaking up a lot of material from the bottom of the river. So they’re a great choice when trying to keep the spread of invasive species down. But does that mean you have to get rid of your felt-sole shoes? No. If you fish the same watershed time after time, or you go for weeks or months between fishing trips, felt’s going to be fine.”
