All anglers fish the Federation Water at their own risk. A life jacket can save your life if you fall into the water. Life jackets should be worn at all times.
All anglers should take care whilst fishing, particularly when wading. Be careful when back casting if there are other persons behind you, particularly non-anglers. Be extra careful if there are overhead wires or cables nearby, especially when using carbon fibre rods. Carbon fibre is a high conductor of electricity, and contact with electric power lines can kill or cause severe bums.
