Read an article in May’s Field & Stream about Canadian walleye fishing on a Class III river. At one point, the author described his partner in a classic case of foot entrapment. His head was pushed under twice and he barely escaped with his life. The author mentions being close by but being unable to get to his partner to render assistance.
Just a reminder, if you flip over while fishing DO NOT walk out of a rapid. Always float or swim out of a rapid. Keep hands and feet AWAY from the bottom of the river.
