Good thoughts, risk management is not to be taken lightly when in or on the water fishing. The river banks and trails for us winter steelheaders also present addtional risks when they are snow and ice covered. I have taken my falls and luckily never any major injuries. You should see some of these steep trails that must be navigated at times.
Speaking of snow, we are going to get some showers in Chicago the next few days. Will be downtown chicago the next two days braving the lake front cold winds and snow showers.
Love it great football and steelhead weather! :hehe:
