How do you carry while fishing?

Do you? While wading and such? Do you use a waterproof bag or carry in the wb and don't go too deep? Or do you just leave your gun in the truck and use your fishing rod as a sword if needed

I rarely wade in except at Pyramid Lake in the winter. There I'm away from everybody and can seem peeps coming from along way out. I usually meet them at the shore (Glock in tackle box.)

But I've had to wade while carrying before, I just shake off the water and give the Glock/Blackhawk a good cleaning when I get home.

I carry my 1911 in a Ross sob. It has gotten wet a few times, but I just strip it and clean it that evening. Getting wet is harder on the leather than the gun

Port Arms, nothing less for this fisherman.......................






















































Actually, since I don't wade, my fanny pack is okay for me. It doubles as a gear bag, which makes it really cramped due to my big gun that I carry, but it works. I really need to move stuff around and maybe change to a shoulder holster to carry my big gun.

So, carry up high and hope it doesn't get wet. If it does, no big deal.

Always confused me but whats the big deal with a gun firing underwater? Why wouldn't it, depends more if the ammo is watertight then the gun?

Chamber pressure of forcing the bullet to fire through the water in the barrel............

This weekend on Guns and Ammo TV they did the underwater test with a Springfield 45. It stovepiped on the second or 3 rd shot and it finally bulged the barrel. It was at the bottom of the pool so about 4 feet deep.

i don't get in the water when i fish. i carry a hk usp tactical .45 in a blackhawk omega drop holster. i like the drop leg because i usually have a back pack on and i find a hip holster is uncomftorable with it.

wear the straps and tighten them down until both the mags and the gun are directly under the armpits...this will most likely keep them out of the water...but unlike the 1911 I have on, I have worn my glock in all outdoor situations and never had a problem with it functioning once it was wet.

Most polymer framed pistols should be fine being in/around water or being totally submerged. Just make sure you clean it well after getting it wet so it doesn't corrode.

Also...shooting underwater is dumb. It's not effective and you could injure yourself.

I fished all day Sat. with the .380 in my vest. Luckily I didn't fall, or have to shoot anything.

I saw that, I do most of my fishing from the bank so I keep my truck close to me with a rifle or shotgun and my pistol on my hip.

Yep...

I dont carry except along the Madison or other *known* snake areas and even then its a Ruger SA .22.

I dont carry at all when Ive got my waders on but do *occasionally* when Im wet wading. Rationale is that waist high waders are NOT conducive to carrying and I only wear the waist highs late fall, winter and early spring when its too cold fer snakes and wet wade during the summer in the jeans and boots. Course we never go in deeper than about 3" below the crotch when we wet wade either so a std. hip slung holster works just fine...

Pics? I want to carry while back packing but haven't figured out a good way to both wear the gun comfortably and keep it easily accessable.
