Also, there are things you can do to attenuate the cold setting in so fast - heated socks. Heated hand warmers; warm hats and sleeves. on a 90 degree day with shorts, boots, and a long sleeve shirt on, your top half is warm, sometimes hot and your bottom half is cool, sometimes cold. All that being said, more times than not, in the summer, I find myself dipping my hands in the water to wet my arms and dipping my hat in the water to cool my sweaty head.
or you could just wear waders.

Talking about rock snot. Somewhere around Haw Creek there is a rock that is about six feet long, flat as a table top, but inclined slightly. I got on the top end of that thing one day without a wading staff and began to slide in slow motion. Couldn't think of anything to do to stop. Two friends standing off a way watching me. All we could do was laugh as I slowly slid down.
Must have taken 15 seconds until I went off the end...boom...up to my neck. That cold water sucks the wind right out of ya.

I couldn’t wade the Hooch without one.
