Here are my Simms L2s after being resoled. It was $49.50 as KC Shoe and boot repair, that included tax. They don't have streamtread or aquastealth, but they have two vibram designs to choose from. I went with the multidirectional tread as opposed to straight lugs. I have had this shop do repairs before and they do great work, reasonable prices as well.

Local shop here in Bentonville will do the same. Have had them do several pairs of boots with Vibram. Might take my old wading boots in there to have them redo them.

You'll have to let us know how they do after getting wet. (as in wading / versus felt)

I treated mine with the 3 part MDC method... but I don't like them as much now. They are just slippery.

Just once I wish a trout would wink at me!

they look great! they did a nice job.

the 3 part MDC method is really only temporary anyway. Probably cheaper in the long run to get them resoled or buy new boots.

I have heard several people complaining that the MDC method is terrible advice, and you would be better off with running shoes!

My brother and I were down at Bennett Spring in normal water levels, and he commented it almost looked like an ice skating rink! ;-)

In the first 3 hours of fishing, we saw 5 people slip and fall, with 4 of the 5 going completely under the water.

It appears that either some folks are having issues with the no-felt sole learning curve, or they all must have followed the MDC suggestions!

I look in my fly box and think about what should guide my choice of the best fly: the amount/angle of sun on the water, the water temp & clarity, what bugs are hatching, what the fish might be eating, and what worked last time. Then I remember what an old man told me... " Ninety percent of what a trout eats is brown, fuzzy, about 1/2 inch long and underwater."
