    Being stuck up to your thigh brought back memories. I was fishing on the S/F of the Skagit a few years ago and me and my buddy were drinking beer and not feeling any pain. Well we were on the bank and I moved along side of him and grass that I thought was land wasn't. I was in a position just about like you were but I wasn't stuck but the water was deep and cold.

    Be the guide...
    I've thought about what I would do if I was alone and that happened. In some actual situations, I was able to find big sticks to make a type of platform for my 'free' foot to step on for leverage to pull the other out. The longer the sticks the better (like using snow shoes). But if sticks are not in reach - and your life is on the line - time to sacrifice that rod and your vest - and anything else you can put together that will resist sinking into the mud and offer you leverage to push off from. I'd probably break the rod into 3 or 4 peices (a 4 peice rod would be conveinient...), cover the criss-crossed peices with my shirt or vest, then place my free foot on it and push and lean forward at the same time...
