Guess you have to charge tent wetting fees!

It's a beautiful early summer day. The sun is high, the sky is blue, the tide is moving just enough to bring in the striped fish.
You've slowly worked your way out. Not a lot of fish caught, but enough to make it fun. Time seems to have stood still.
It's the perfect day on the flats.

Slowly your attention is drawn away from scanning the area. You involuntarily start to bounce on one foot. There's some pressure building in your lower abdomen.

You've got to pee.

You look toward shore, it's got to be 3/4 of a mile away.
You start to think. The waders will need to be dropped... first the vest will need to come off.... don't forget the stripping basket....oh yeah, the wader belt too! You'll need to put your rod down somewhere....
There's certainly no trees around to hang your vest on or prop up your rod.
You look toward shore again. Has it gotten further away?
In all the fishing how-to books you've ever read, this has never come up.

You need a plan.
First you'll need to remove your vest and wading belt and place them in your stripping basket, then turn the basket to the rear.
Then drop the basket to your knees,... reach around and balance your rod on top...almost there..
But Wait
A quick glance around to see if there's an audience.... you're really dancin' now .. you quickly unbuckle the wader straps.....



When fish are on the flats, they follow their nose. They're searching for a scent that will lead them to lunch.
Anything out of the ordinary must be investigated.

I'm speaking from experience here.

You need to get those waders back up, stripping basket turned around, and your wader belt and vest back on as quickly as possible.
Put your back to the current, keep low and get ready to cast !
Do it fast, there's not much time.

Not only do do feel better, but you've discovered a new way to chum fish on the flats.
A new form of Rain Bait!!

Here's a bit of wisdom for fly fishers.... don't take diuretics for high blood pressure and wear chest waders.....
