There has been alot of talk about fallin through the ice lately. Presure riges warm weather and such. Just thought we needed a topic so we can share what we do for our own safety. Spikes are are probably the cheapest piece safety equip. you can buy !!!!! If yer to cheap to buy them they can easily be made. I also wear a pair of old neoprene waders. They are warm waterproof and wind proof. I dont think anyone realizes how fast hypothermia can set in. Within minutes you can loose the ability to think and act rationaly. We all could probably write a book on this. Hopefuly everyone will throw in thier two cents worth and we can all learn somthin and be safe!!!! happy holidays everyone!
