Doug is right on  climate change! "HappySAD7000user" and "Inhere"  and "Arizona"and the  village idiot 1halfgram4three are wrong! They are  scientifically illiterate, climate denier easy beats!!!! They are terrified of the truth and too spineless to come here and debate the issue!!!
The changing climate is NOT due to natural variation!
The  enormous body of diverse evidence, the physics and the overwhelming majority of climate scientists publishing in  recognized peer reviewed scientific journals agree that the earth is warming due predominately to  rising atmospheric  levels of anthropogenic C02!

Yesterday I was  out with our flyfishing club  and  I was fly fishing the upper Yarra river ar Warburton Vic. Despite having a wading staff and using proper wading boots with cleats  and felt soles I still managed to go fo a swim and  now  also have a sore back and a bruised knee!The river is very rocky and the rocks are very slippery so care should be taken in wading rivers like this particularly when the rocks are so slippery. I also found that its very demanding physically for a  very skinny 68 year old like  me to wade and then to clamber up and down steep banks with waders and a fly vest and net and  also walk quite long distances  between pools in the heat! The only person that caught some trout was a new American club member who caught them on a fly pattern which none of us had!!
A very sore and tired doug!

Hi Doug
Sorry to hear that, I saw a lot off people go under on the same river including myself.
On that place we had to cross the river to get to a island, water levels were very critical.
Everybody had a swimm on that place, on a hot day its ok, fished in underwear for a couple off houres.
At least we don't have crocs.
Good luck and take care.

I have panned in that general area of the Upper Yarra and found it risky / slippery on the rocks. :ike you I have slipped many times in rivers on rocks and felt embarrased sore and sorry for myself afterwards. On a hot day its not so bad but on a cold day, with fast water, it is much less pleasant.

At least being skinng you offer less resistance to water flow.

Not when you are wearing waders, wading boots and a heavy fly vest!
