Felt Wading Shoes in NY Waters

Has NY banned felt wading shoes?
A place to discuss trout fishing in New Jersey and more!
That's correct. And they should mention that the laces on your rubber soled, studded boots and crevices in those boots will transfer every bit as much Didymo as felt soles will. It's a diatom, so it only takes a miniscule amount....but NY has not banned felts. I think that fad is over, and states that went down that road stick with it and other states considered it and realized it wasn't enough of a Band-Aide to go out and ban felts which remain the safest form of wading. And especially when studs are added to the felt.
