That's great and I don't want to be a downer, but if he's wading that deep in a flow you might want to get him a tight wading belt.
Agreed. I actually took my wading belt off and tried to put it on him but it kind of doubled over and I couldnt get it to work.
That first picture is our entry spot and it was about that deep. I held onto the back of his waders as we went through. Everything past that was about knee high for him.
THANKS ALL for the kind words! I hit up a new spot the other day that was just TEAMING with smallies and as I was fishing I was looking for a way to get my son back there safely. I usually like to fish and wade in areas that you need to work and sweat to get to...
Steady and slow. This kids a keeper!
