If you fish at lakes, ponds and rivers in the country, your fishing boots may do double duty as hiking boots. They should have rugged soles that protect the foot from sharp rocks and sticks, sturdy uppers to support the ankle and watertight construction in case of a slip into the pond.


Fly fisherman or others who like to get out into the middle of things would choose fishing boots that cover more of the leg or even by waders. These fishing boots are almost more like tall rubber pants that protect completely when standing in the water to try to catch an elusive fish.
