Rescue Film Series: Ep. 7: Live Bait Rescue
Live bait rescue – jumping into the water to help someone in trouble while tethered to a line from shore – is risky but it can be a life saver. In Episode 7 of Rescue for River Runners, swiftwater expert Jim Coffey shows several different live bait techniques and describes the best ways to do them safely. These are advanced techniques that should be learned and practiced by those kayaking and rafting in more extreme whitewater conditions.
From our lawyers: The series is a supplement to, not a substitute for, hands-on training classes.
