There's no way he drown there I thought to myself... How? Then I re-read it. He wasn't equipped with a life jacket and he was wearing waders. Call me callous, but if you can't respect the river - there's no way in hell it's going to respect you. Not wearing a life jacket is plain stupidity. Especially during high water. I feel for this guy and think it's a tragedy, but if you don't want to have the river scoured by a gentleman of the likes above don't be an idiot - put on a PFD.
