Nice stories.
I took a plunge while fishing with Mike Thomas and Jeff Hamm in New Zealand a few years ago. Mike had crossed the river at a spot upcreek from us. I asked him where to cross and thought he said cross here mate. What he said was not here mate. I went into a hole and did a topsy turvy thing around the bend. Jeff waded out and asked, You need a hand mate. Yes please, said I. I thought it was all cool but as I was pulling off my waders Jeff had his camera out. No one gets away, he said. That night I was a funny story with pictures on FAOL.
I did have my cell phone in a zip lock baggy thanks to Mike.
