I can't tell anyone about studs...I've never had any.

I will however be getting a pair of Korkers with interchangable soles for my next boots! Shouldn't need them for a while tho Unless our local tailwaters/parks decide to put a ban on felt soles

What is the protocol for cleaning between streams? I seem to remember a bleach/water slurry soaking regimen, but not sure of proportions and times. This was the school solution for a while, anyone remember it? Any F&W Services banned felt on a blanket or stream basis? Any guides prohibiting them? If rubber becomes default sole, will be overtaken by events when that is all that is available for sale. Watson

Am I misinformed?

To get back to your original question, I think you've got it figured right. If you're not transferring cooties from one stream to another, there's no problem.

Of late I have been reading technical papers regarding whirling disease. The thing that struck me was a paper that found whirling disease spores surviving 30 years of freeze-thaw temperature cycles and drought/wet cycles.
