Very sad to hear. I googled Weir Dam and found a video of someone taking their boat up and over. Very scary!!!

Prayers for the victims family.

Loc: In a river hopefully!

Weir dams are the WORST for dangerous hydraulics and getting out. IF you can keep your head about you the only way to get out is to swim to the bottom and crawl that is going to happen in 55 degree water! Stay away from the weir!

Sorry for this gentleman's family.
I hunt and fish not for the thrill of the kill, but for the thrill of the grill!!

I fished the Clinch friday and met a family member of the man who died last friday. They said that that at least the family had some comfort that the elderly man died doing something he loved.
