My good friend Dave was recently hit by a flying boat while walleye fishing in South Dakota.
Getting hit by a flying boat was probably not on Dave’s list of dangers to avoid while fishing. He and I spent the summer teaching and traveling together in Alaska. As the adults responsible for the safety of nine college students, we had a long list of potential dangers associated with fishing and spending time on the waters of Alaska. We worked hard to minimize and mitigate them. But we were aware of them.
