    A staff is essential for wading some rivers. Using this folding aluminum wading staff is easy. Each one comes with a neoprene sheath that attaches to your wading belt. We recommend purchasing a heavy duty retractor to attach the staff to the sheath. The staff can be carried in the sheath, and pulled from it when needed. When the staff is pulled from the sheath, it automatically assembles itself because of the tension provided by a heavy duty shock cord within the staff. The Custom Wading Staff features The Fly Fishing Shop logo on the end of the padded foam handle. This staff sinks tip-first so it avoids line coils on the water. The large foam handle floats above the surface for easy access to your hand.

    When a Gear Keeper Wading Staff Tether is added between your belt sheath and your staff, the handle of the staff remains close to your side for instant access. The handle remains in the perfect position to stay under control and out of the way. Unlike the tapered ferrules that are standard in some designs, the straight ferrules used in the Custom Staff are easily pulled apart for folding the staff and reinserting it into the sheath. No more banging your staff on rocks or boats to get it apart. This may be the best staff available, and at the best price out there.

    Strong and rigid for average size people. 54" when assembled. 15" when folded. 16" long when in the sheath.

    I haven't been able to get out on the water but so far it works just fine on dry land and should while wading. Modified the strap adding a brass grommet at the end for a coiled retaining cable. Simple mod but works perfectly. Looking forward to using it next week. J

    Love the product. I've previously been using a hiking staff for years and found it to be short and gets in the way of my fly line when casting. With this product, I don't have any of those problems. It works great and in my opinion, you can't beat the price. Thanks.

    Staff worked as advertised, it was very easy to take out of holster and set up.
    I lost the top knob the first day using even after I thought I locked it in place, it came off & floated down the river. I would not give it a A in heavy duty wading which I do often if the lower section gets stuck in between rocks or in mud the staff will pull apart. I am an old guy and still a serious wader that needs 100% reliability. It works well for stability and balance but in heavy water when it would be needed the most I would not trust it. I would also recommend a small rubber tip, the metal noise on rocks when wading does not make for stealth fishing!

    Very nice—does its job..

    At less than half the price of the Simms wading staff, and of comparable or better quality, this wading staff provides excellent value while getting the job done. My only complaint is that ‘one size does not fit all’ & the staff was a bit tall for me, requiring a 7” modification. Would be nice if it was offered in shorter & taller versions. Beyond that, no issues!
