I Happily Wore These Fishing Shoes Into a BarWet wading is, for my money, the best fly fishing (wet wading = fly fishing in a stream without waders). Second, the stream I’m fishing is cold but not so cold that my legs will turn to ice and shatter if they’re bare. River sandals are, of course, a classic option while wet wading, but I prefer these lightweight, tough, and super comfy wet wading shoes from Orvis, the PRO Approach. Yeah, they’re basically approach shoes, but for fly fishing. They’re plenty grippy, with an excellent Michelin rubber outsole, even on slimy rocks.
