Ban on felt-soled waders in Vermont to end in July

Posted: Updated:
BURLINGTON, Vt. -

It's safe to wear felt soles in the water.

A five year ban on felt-soled waders in Vermont will end on July first. The ban was put in place over worries about rock snot. The soles help with traction, but officials feared they also carried the rock snot from one body of water to another. 

The state is now simply asking fishermen and women to wash their gear and dry thoroughly before and after each use.
