S4:31 Wading Commandments Revisited

Our most-read post on this site is the one Steve wrote on “The 10 Commandments of Wading.”
Using the phrase “wading commandments” is a good way to talk about a subject that carries with it the great risk of the sport. In this episode, we revisit each of the ten commandments, adding in comments from our listeners and telling stories of our close calls.


    GREAT STUFF FROM OUR LISTENERS. At the end of each episode, we often include a feature called “Great Stuff from Our Listeners.” It’s the last segment of each episode, where Steve reads one of the comments from our listeners or readers. We enjoy hearing from you, and appreciate your advice, wisdom, and fly fishing experiences.

    What have we missed? What other wading commandments need to be added to our list?


    We’d love for you to refer our podcast to a friend, your TU chapter, or fly fishing club. Be sure to pass along our podcast to others.

The Fly Fisher’s Book of Lists – The Perfect Book for a New Fly Fisher

    We’ve published a book for regular-Joe-and-Jane fly fishers called The Fly Fisher’s Book of Lists: Life is short. Catch more fish.

    To switch metaphors, perhaps it’s more like a handful of potato chips. It’s an entire book of lists. The goal is to help you find practical help quickly and in an easily digestible format!

  1. I use an inflatable belt life preserver as a wading belt all the time in case of stepping in a deep hole or wading too deep and falling. I wear a belt any way so why not one that inflates. It has never been used but the one time I do use it may make a big difference. And, it may help in recovering my body if I don’t survive.

  2. I love your pod- it keeps me in the fishing world when I’m not fishing! Regarding wading, my dad taught me to make sure I never get my legs crossed while wading. In other words, keep my right foot on my right side and my left foot on my left side so I don’t end up twisted with the current going against me.

    1. That’s a great piece of wisdom, Mike. Thanks for sharing it. Yes, if you get your legs crossed, you can easily lose balance with the current pushing against you. Your dad was right on target. And we’re glad to keep you in the fishing world when you’re not fishing. The podcast does that for us, too 😉
