Went on a all day float on the river I live on ,but south of where I live. The part of my river is a slow relaxing float. The section that I did this past weekend was what rafters consider solid class 2. I was in a Old Town 119 Solo with no air bladders. I got swamped and tossed twice and had to have the help of 2 yak girls. I had a fishing on lakes PFD type 3 on and it was lacking in floatation. Me and my bud caught over 50 smallmouth with the biggest being 18inches. I have a good bit of sourness and some scrapes and bruises... but I'm still breathing . You sometimes live and I learned. Already on order. Air bladders and a NRS Chinook PFD.
