Who would’ve guessed I would be fishing upstate New York at the end of October in 85° weather wearing shorts, a T-shirt and flipRocks, Extreme flip-flops! Usually this time of year is very unpredictable, with snow showers, temps dipping into the 30s and Highwinds. This year however has been one of the warmest on record for upstate New York. If you could only see the look on all those thousands of fisherman’s faces as I crossed the raging Salmon River with nothing but a pair of fishing sandals, shorts and a T-shirt. These guys were suited up ready for war! They had their heavy duty neoprene waders, jackets, their big boots, and fly vests on. I, however was light as a feather gliding through the water fishing for salmon effortlessly. The freedom was unreal and believable. I only wish everyone could experience an ultralight what waiting sandal that literally feels like a boat in terms of strength with arch support for comfort. It really is liberating!
