Kenny did share an incident that happened to him while
pre-fishing alone for the lower Columbia event. Strong
current and submerged obstruction threw Kenny from his
boat with out floatation devise. His ability as a very
strong swimmer and his boat being pinned against
obstruction was the only thing that allowed him to
return to his boat safely. Wear your floatation devise
at all times when fishing alone and in foul conditions.
