Spring brings increased river fishing so heed these wading safety tips and make sure you get home to your loved ones at the end of the day.
Some sound tips to ensure you don't get into a bad situation in fast water. I think the biggest one is to listen to what your "spidey senses" are telling you.

Apply common sense and some of these safety tips to ensure you can return again and again to rivers of your choice.
