I don’t think anyone had posted about this tragic accident on this forum.
Reading up on things I have missed…
Many years ago I was fishing on the New River just around the bend from the Radford Army Ammunition facility in Virginia when they had an explosion.
I was in the river wearing chest waders, and wielding a fly rod, and it shook the ground, and I literally slipped off my feet and into the river, and the water lowered and rose again very quickly. I also could not hear anythingfor a while with the ringing in my ears… slightly nerve wracking.
