Wading Sticks for Crossing Rivers, Balance and Measuring Water Depth

Rate this Entry
A wading stick is one of the most useful things to take with you on a hunt or for fishing in faster moving waters. A [URL=""]wading stick[/URL] is traditionally a thumbstick with a weighted end and a long lanyard that can be wrapped around the body.

The weighted end and the lanyard both prevent the stick from floating off downstream. The weighted end also allows you to test the depth of the water when crossing rivers and ponds and gives you balance, preventing you from falling in!

Some wading sticks have ruler marks on the shank so that you can measure the length of your catch. You could of course customize your wading stick by adding the marks yourself.
