God, that brought back a memory from 30 years ago.

Fishing way up on the North Fork of the Skykomish for summer runs and Chum Salmon. (chum's may be 'ugly' but God are they a strong fish. Also love a bushie red fly).

Anyway, wade out on a gravel bar about 30 some feet from the bank to fish the holding water/slot on the other side. Hook, release, hook, etc. Standing in about 3 feet of 'froggish' water.

Anyway, I'm done ...... or so I thought.

While I was out there playing around a huge school of chums moved into the shallow water behind me. I turn, take one step, they all go bananna's in 360 degrees of direction.

I was so startled I litterly fell over backwards ...... Good soaking to say the least.
