    I always use waders, thats usually when i'm duck hunting. I don't do much trout fishing so I am usually bash fishing from a bank.

      I always like to go out a few miles to swim where you don't see the trash from shore. Jump in the water for a dip right off the boat. The places to be aware would be the stagnant backwater where things can breed. I heard a case where a person picked up some kind of worm parasite from a small pond and it went through their nose and it bored right into his brain.
