Default Re: Fly Fisher Dies in Clark River

The way your stripping apron attaches across your lap in a tube, as in my fish cat 4, can "belt" you in the boat. We keep hearing of guys in such boats who lean forward netting fish, grabbing for their tippet or flies and tipping over to the front.

I now wear a manual inflate pfd and I do NOT lock in the stripping apron in front of me. One would have to stay very calm under water to undo 2 connections, one of which is velcro, but is buried behind your right hip next to your seat.

...and I cannot imagine a float tube in moving water. I've seen it, but no thanks...
