Fly fishing is a fantastic sport. Between the beauty and excitement of the chase, a fly fisher can easily forget or ignore that being around water has certain dangers.  In addition to the water itself, there can be other dangers worth considering, ie… flying hooks, poisonous snakes, insects, etc.  This section is devoted to providing information that can help keep your next fishing trip a little safer.  This page will evolve and grow as articles and information becomes available.
