Example Wading Staff
Since we began a new page entitled "Safety On The Water", we feel it necessary to discuss another safety technique (tool) which really decreases one's risks. That is the wading staff.

Such a simple design, one wonders why they didn't design one and make some money. Well we didn't, but at least we can write about them in a free blog post.

And even if you do not have a handicap, wading staffs are great and a must when fishing any flowing water containing rocks. So that means any water.

There are many manufacturers and they range in price from at least $24.95 to $149.95. One of the nice things is they last forever. The one I personally use, I have had for many years. The material is some kind of light weight metal. It still functions perfectly, but I would recommend some lithium grease on each joint, if you have a "folding" staff, to keep joints from sticking and for ease in "folding".

Here are some staffs which you'll find quickly online by simply typing in "wading staff":
Cabelas 54" Staff - $49.99
Colorado Angler Staff - $33.99
Simms 52"-56" Staff - $24.95
Simms Pro 52"-56" Staff - $149.95

Hard takes, tight lines, screaming reels and don't fall.
