Safety Devices.

I heard some terrible news from my brother the other night. His 2 friends were canoeing down a strech of river in VT and his friend fell out of the canoe. They looked for him but the search/rescue party didn't find him until the next day. They were not wearing PFDs of any sort. It's pretty shocking and very sad as the kid that died was about to graduate from college with my little bro and his friend he was canoeing with this week. I hate bearing bad news but I couldn't imagine this happening to a friend or family member. I can't imagine how it is for the victims family. Anyways I hope we all take into consideration safety procedures and PFDs when we are on the water. I know I will definitely be recertifying my inflatable preserver before I head for the river or surf.

Tight lines and happy catching

Adrian
