Gear Video: Stopping Invasive Species Spread

December 9, 2009 By: Marshall Cutchin

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.”
