    Swinging Dry Flies?

    Just curious: Does anyone swing dry flies? I never read of anglers doing it, but I don't see why not.

    Opinions please,

    I think it's important to cast with both hands. First, it gives both arms - shoulders, elbows - a chance to rest. Second, if you fish small streams a large part of the stream will now be open to you...

    If you're looking for both hiking and wading boots I'd go with a pair of Korkers. (Which is what I have.) You can change the soles.
