Default Montana Guide Dies in Raft Accident

I'm sorry to have to pass on some terrible news to the world of fly fishing, Fly Fishing Guide Dave Dedmon of Montana Flywater passed away yesterday in a boating accident on the east fork of the Bitterroot river. He was floating with his wife Sharon when their raft hit a downed willow tree that was crossing the entire river. The raft flipped and both were thrown into the raging and freezing water. They were able to get together for a few minutes after the swamping and were holding hands as they were swept downstream but unfortunately the river was so turbulent that they got separated and sometime in the course of those terrifying few minutes Dave suffered a traumatic head injury that caused him to lose consciousness. His body was found about a mile downstream from where Sharon was rescued by two fisherman that had witnessed the event. Sharon came very close to drowning and with the water she was suffering terribly from hypothermia.

There will be a memorial service this Saturday in Hamilton, MT
