Re: Overboard South of Montauk LI

I read about that Montauk fisherman in the East Hampton Star. Very tragic.

The incident flyrod posted in Plum Gut is just mind boggling.

I sometimes swim in the Hudson off my boat but I always deploy a floating line. The 1-2 knot current is enough to overpower a weak swimmer very quickly.
