Safety First -

This e-mail was sent to me by a reader of the blog......and I offered to post it. -- Please be safe while fish is that important.

My nephew Joshua McNamara (28 years old) was inner tubing on July 8th and got caught in a current and is presumed drowned. We are still at the recovery stage for his body. Our family wants you to be advised and aware on your fishing trips. Joshua was last seen at the 128th Str McMillan bridge area. the next mile and a half is where we think he may be stuck. If you see anything like a blue with yellow inner tube, or either black and orange shorts or khaki shorts please call 911. 
You may see flyers on trees along the banks with yellow ribbons. Please take note of the flyer with Details.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions or information.

we pray that he may be found soon. The thought of someone stumbling upon him could have nightmares the rest of their life is something that we don't want to have happen.

Above all our family want to turn this tragedy into an educational tool for river safety and please wear your lifejacket. A simple life jacket would have saved his life. So be real careful out there all you fishing people and have a great season!
