Q. Are felt-soled waders legal in Wyoming?
A. Yes they are…However, in a few states, waders with porous soles are banned as they are thought to increase the likelihood of trapping spores or larvae from undesirable species which can be spread to otherwaters as anglers go from stream to stream. The concern is enough that some wader manufacturers no longer makefelt-soled waders or wading shoes. As a precaution against spread of unwanted aquatic hitchhikers, anglers are encouraged to clean and thoroughly dry wading equipment after each use.
