At this point the Boa has been ruled out for this purchase. I'm thinking I may go Vibram for more traction outside of the creek. I may go with one of the lighter models, however. Will see how this goes.

 I was shopping for new boots last week and one of the salesman told me to avoid the Boa system for all the reasons already mentioned. He said they break all the time and are a son of a bitch to fix.

Listen to driver.  Laces. Go Vibram.  Install cleats.  Hike in them.  Be happy.  I am a completely klutz and I haven't died yet  in Vibram.  Plus, not having to hike in wading boots means more room for summer sausage and coffee.

@buddy_25_99  on here that I fish with has these. He loves them. They offer felt and rubber soles for grip on the banks and hiking, and you can add studs on top of the felt and rubber. Lightest weight boots that I've found yet. I don't think they'd hold up like the guide boots, but they'd be perfect for an all-around boot.

Quit using wading boots for hiking boots!  By a decent daypack, and stuff some hiking boots and dry socks in there.  It is a safer way to travel.

This is what I'm contemplating on. It's kind of why I wanna get a pair that I can use for both hiking and wading. I always keep a pair of dry socks in my pack regardless.
