What is empirical  evidence?
Empirical evidence is information acquired by observation or experimentation. This data is recorded and analyzed by scientists and is a central process as part of the scientific method. Why is everything posted on climate by Inhere always horseshit?
Poor old  Inhere on finders still does not know the difference between weather and climate!The silly old goat seems to think because some places have recently had very cold weather that this brings into question  AGW!  Only right wing rabble rubbish climate deniers like horseshit Inhere don't  seem to understand  that AGW will mean that some regions of the earth will become colder!

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!
