Great information from the previous posts.

The aluminum spikes degrade as a side-effect of their gripping characteristic. However; they tend to grip the best on rocks. I would recommend you not use them for long hikes or long-term use.

If you are a hard-core fly fisherman; you should look in to the crampon style cleats.

One tip; it is super economical to buy aluminum screws at the big-box hardware stores and replace them every other month. Also; you can try brass screws. The work pretty awesome as well!

Hope this helps! I have not found a fly fishing product for traction that has won me over yet.
