Outdoor emergency preparedness

I believe the outdoors is remarkably safe, yet no matter what you do, there are risks involved. It doesn't matter if you are commuting to work, or driving a forklift on the job, teaching in a classroom, there are risks involved & you could get hurt. You & I are probably much more likely to get in an auto accident, or slip & fall at work than we are likely to get injured while out fishing, hunting, or hiking. The difference is that outdoor pursuits are often solitary in nature and you are often in a remote location far from medical help ...

The Dropper Fly technique

About 100 years ago, my Grandfather earned his living for several years as a professional flyfisher. He would fish the trout streams of Colorado with his flyrod, & sell the fish to the mining & logging camps. Since it was his livelihood, Grandpa's primary concern was catching as many large fish as possible, & he utilized numerous techniques to fill his fish sack. One of the most effective techniques Grandpa used was the dropper fly, which consistently produced more and larger fish. The dropper fly is still an amazingly effective technique today.

Sometimes even Doug Flutie can’t help

When up to your pelvis in a river, and the insert in your waders is bunched at the toe, its annoying. Not debilitating but something you will surely address next time you are on shore.
