I recommend Clarithromycin and Doxycyclene. Eat lots of yogurt and keep a roll of TP handy. No direct sunlight, laying down for 30 minutes after taking them, or excess drinking. You must drink 2-3 glasses of water with them, so you'll be up twice per night to take a leak (assuming the explosive diarrhea doesn't get you first). It's going to be a long 9 months.

I tried to disregard every single warning about the side effects at least once, and paid dearly each time (learned about the prolonged sunlight this weekend).

I loved wet wading as much as the next guy, but be careful.

Ha-yea.

Mo was wet wading in April.

Tim Murphy probably only wears waders for steelheading.

We're big sissys.


I'm betting Tim has wet waded for steelhead, too. I have as early as March. But it was before I bought a pair of breathable waders.

I can't stand to wear non-breathable waders anymore, and never could stand them before when the air temperature got much above 35 or 40. But as i get older, I'm finding I wear the waders later and later in the season. I'm blaming on the BP pills.

Nice pictures Acristik, looks like you found some fishable water during the sweltering heatwave here in the western part of the state. I opted not to fish due to the heat. Your photos make me question my logic.

I'm not a fan of wet wading unless I'm fishing streams small enough that I could step across. Even then I am sure to wear long pants and my wading boots. Jay's experience confirmed my logic as to why i prefer to wear waders year round.

I hear that on the wading boots. I used to just wear old tennis shoes, but not anymore.

I thought abotu it this weekend, and then I thought about Jay's leg.

I'd rather sweat some more weight off than have a flesh eating bacteria take care of it.

Jay, I'm amazed that sore is still open. You would be nuts to wet wade again! As I've said before, I never wet wade. Most of the creeks I fish have too many hazards, and the possibility of stepping on a snake is very real. I don't like snakes (never have seen a poisonous one) and I want protection on my legs so I can fish with confidence. But yes, wet wading would feel better.

It's miniscule at this point. Three fingertip sized dots that scab then reopen on about a two week cycle. The rest is just a big shiny crater. Even so, I've learned my lesson about creek water.

GG,
You ain't kiddin!
South FL is crawling with rays. Although I'm very careful wading and have never been "hit" by one, I've kicked my fair share of rays. They truly scare me. I know folks who have been stung by rays and man do they describe some hurtin. Sharks don't bother me and cudas are WAY overrated as dangerous.

Stingrays are another story.

I'm more concerned about poison ivy, vegetation and bugs ripping apart my legs while moving around the stream. As long as I got a little toe/ankle protection and will be in the water most of the time, I'll go in. I have to say, I never gave any thought to infections from river water though...

I only wet wade the cleanest streams I fish, surprisingly that doesn't include all brookie streams I fish.

Jay,
I don't know the story about your leg. What happened?

There's a whole thread that lasted from the beginning (.22 sized puncture wound) to the middle (giant rotting zombie wound) to now (slowly healing crater). The short version is that I fell on a rock (with waders on...without, it would have filleted me). It gave me a deep bone bruise and puncture, and the wound was apparently seeded with Mycobateria.

Here's the post with the graphic pic...
