Smells like low tide.
I tried to combine xc skiing and wading a stream one time, but I never got the flyrod out. Was crossing a frozen coastal Alaska stream on skiis with tobbogan in tow when the tide flexed ice gave way and I sank in waste deep water with skiis on.Mid way on a 2 day journey. Got skiis off and crawled to the far side. Dogs and I got mostly dried in my sleeping bag. I did have a change of dry clothes on the tobbogan. A sketchy bivouac that night but waded 2 other small streams and got into a friends cabin before nightfall the next day.
