Todays paper had two deaths reported. One by a guy noodling without any type of flotation device. 27 years old and he didn't make it... Second by another young man who just went swimming. Got tangled up in old fishing line with a hook. No way to prove it, but I'd bet it was heavier than a normal line...I know I have no reason to suspect it, other than what I have personally seen, but I'd almost bet it was something like 50 to 80 pound test line that a person couldn't break so they just cut the line and he got tangled up in it. I'll see if I can post the stories...These articles were published in todays edition of the Daily Oklahoman.
