Hi.
I & others know how you feel.
Years ago I did quite a bit of waterskiing & found Neophrene Wetsuits invaluable when people came off,especially learners,however I'm a bit sceptical about Neophrene & other Waders especially from Float Tubes,the main thing is to always wear a good waist belt.,however people don't think about it until after the event.
An Inflatable Vest would make you feel more secure & either them or Life jackets shoud be compulsary with Float Tubes.

Touch of a problem with this 'pole.' I'm at the age where you're no longer referred to as xyz years old .... but zyx 'years young.'

Sorry, couldn't resist. A warm welcome to our youngsters!

I just turned 18. I got my official rod as a present when I was 3. But I started flyfishing when I was 14.
