Re: Simms wading staff
I need one, not to wade DEEP water, but to assist across and in small streams. Here the stream beds are all rounded slick rock. The water may only be a foot deep or so,,and narrow,,but dangerously slick. That is why i carry one. I'm NOT gonna wade into a dangerous situation. But I don't wish to fall in shallow water. Can get hurt more there than in thigh deep water if you land hard on them rocks.
All the romance of trout fishing exists in the mind of the angler and is in no way shared by the fish.
