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.
