Well, Tribeless, I guess that answers that. It wasn't hypothermia. Seems it was the waders.

sad deal.

Tubs, it's rare that you and I agree on this board, but I'll second this. \:\)

Seriously, if this is done, somebody give me a heads-up and I will contribute.

I think this probably had more to do with it than the waders. Panic and cold water are a deadly combination.

I have been in over my head more than once while wearing waders, and they do not "drag you down" if you keep a cool head. The water inside the waders weighs the same as the water outside the waders, so it all equalizes. It's a little awkward to swim in waders and boots, but even a novice swimmer can dog paddle far enough in waders to reach shallow water.

The key is just not to panic. It's very, very frightening when the cold water first hits your chest and takes your breath away, but if you don't let it freak you out, you can keep your head above water just fine.

Lee Wulff proved you CANNOT drown from going under water with waders on about 40 years ago. He jumped in a hole over his head and walked out.

Problem is in really cold water like the Caney and other tailwaters the inability to breath and loss of consciousness within seconds of immersion.

It's a shame no matter how it happened.
