Neal,

Was it a stumble or a slip fall? Do you were cleats? I know that with the whirling epidemic there are many rules about foot wear but are rubber soles with carbide cleats legal and do you have them?

It was a stumble, a face planter, my son was down river and retrieved my hat, I'm a felt wearer, but I take very good care of my boots when I go home.....hot soak with a cap full of bleach, just one of those trip stumble falls......I have not had one that good...ever....

Neal,

Remember the line Clint Eastwood used in his movie The Unforgiven after the shoot out in Skinny's place? "I've always been lucky in the order" that's how I feel about wading although as I get older I'm not as strong as I was 20 years ago so I am alot more careful than I used to be. I carry a Fol-staff for the really nasty stuff and try to stay above the waves. I'm sure you'll exercise caution in the future but accidents happen that's why they call em accidents.

You guys got to get better at holding your fish! Not only does it take away from the fish with hands covering them but you are also taking off their crucial slime layer by 360 degree holding them! Nice pics and sorry to hear about the fall man, my buddy fell in on Friday attempting to net my 19 cutt, was soaked all day.
