Live bait rescues are increasingly being used for preemptive creek boating safety. As the kayaking community saw last year in the Green River Race, a boater was knocked unconscious in Gorilla Falls, rescuers were then able to pull the unconscious boater to shore within seconds without endangering themselves using the L.B rescue. This rescue technique can also be used to access pinned boats and injured boaters who cannot perform self rescue to shore.
What you need: Rescue PFD w/releasable tether, throw bag, on shore belayer and back up partner to hold belayer. Most importantly Practice, Practice,Practice!!!!
