Riverstick wading staffs:
Common complaints with most folding wading staffs are that they get stuck, vibrate in the current, or wear out…Not this one…This is the sturdiest, most durable folding wading staff I have seen.
I have developed, tested and refined the design on my local rivers over the past 8 yrs. The 6061 marine-grade aluminum machined inserts and heavy-walled tubing are designed to be easily self-maintainable, over the long term, with off-the-shelf grips and tips. The bungee cord tension can easily be adjusted by popping the tip off and knotting the cord as needed. A hammer loop (included) has proven to be the perfect holster, making the staff easy to draw/reload with one hand. It includes a wrist strap and a ring just below the grip for clipping onto a retractor to let it hang extended. At 1 lb 10 ozs, it is solid, and built to last.
I am offering them, with holster, for $120 cdn ($95 usd) plus shipping.
The standard length is 53”, and I can do custom lengths to suit at no extra charge.

Please pm for further info.

Very nice! Well done Sir.

I have seen these in person, and are very well built.

Very nice! Told myself (and my wife) that I would get a wading staff when I turned 60. Since that happened this morning, the post offering these staffs was very timely and I ordered one.

Nice! pm sent requesting particulars.

I actually had one in my hands yesterday. And WOW! they are really nice and sturdy. My Simms staff felt too wimpy to lean my weight on it. Not these. These are made to last a lifetime. Just like an old Hardy Reel. Good job Rick

Do you or could you make one with a carbon steel tip ? I'd be interested if so.

I've been using 53" as standard, but can do whatever length you need.

Just doing replaceable rubber tips at this time. I may need to consider steel tips in the future.
