Default Wading staffs and LPU's.

Have noticed several posts in regard to Wading staffs
and LPU's. We have a number of rivers up here on the Oregon
frontier which will ruin your whole day if you loose your footing
and decide to shoot the rapids. I am sure this is true of most
rivers but the Rogue river comes to mind as it has claimed
a number of fishermen and boaters for that matter. IMHO the
wading staff and LPU are a life savers. To many guys have a
MACHO man mentality and think these tools are for sissies.
It does'nt take much water to drown a person. Some of these
rivers up here have Class 5 rapids and higher. This is real
bad JuJu if you get caught up by one of these rivers. Be
careful out there. Cheers,

Snuffy.
