I was really bumbed today when I heard that Steve Irwin died! I know the guy has flirted with disaster more than once, but he always walked away. Now a Stingray pierced his heart and he is gone. No more CRIKEY!Unsure

Re: [flygoddess] WHAT'S THIS! In reply to
FrownThat was a real shocker. Extremely rare that a ray's stinger would kill him. Unfortunately the barb pierced him right in the heart. Many years ago I got clipped by a ray while fishing in the gulf off of Sanibel Island. Down there one can walk out a hundred yards and still be only waste deep. Was fishing in a bathing suit as the water temp was around 85. Although I think that it was a small one the back of my heel bled like hell.

There is no greater fan of fly fishing than the worm!
