I am in the market for new boots. Need a boot that you can hike into the high mountain lakes in Colorado. Looking for all day comfort and they must have a vibrant sole due to fishing in Missouri. What are you wearing and strengths and weaknesses. Thanks for your help.

Over the course of my fly fishing career, I've worn Weinbrenners, LL Beans, Patagonia, Orvis and Simms. Simms have been the best, with LL Bean second. Both of those companies make sturdy boots that will work for both hiking and wading. They have the ankle support and comfort need for stability on or offshore. Vibram soles are not as tacky and slip-resistant as felt, so if you're going to be wading on slick surfaces, I suggest adding spikes or cleats. You can get boots that come cleated or you can add your own. My Simms G3 boots have lasted several years and I've added both cleats and spikes. Obviously, they would not work in a boat, but are wonderful to wade in.
