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 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.

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.
