Loc: West SSiiide Putnam Co.
Man just heard a man from antioch slipped at happpy and drownd sunday mornin at around 8am. two people nearby tried to save him but his wader had already filled with water. very sorry to hear this . that tells ya the river is dangerous even when not generating!
Loc: just a hair or two north of th...
Its sad to hear something like that, thoughts for his family.
I never fished with waders until I fish that river without. That is my biggest fear. what are you suspose to do if that happens. I figure unstrap the buckles and let the flow take them off. I guess I should look into what to do should that ever happen. I have thought many times to just go without them.
Thats why I asked the question about what type of waders he was wearing. You cannot get out of a pair of neoprene waders. But I dont think they would fill up with water like a plastic/rubber or gortex pair would.
