so when wading . what side does the staff go on. I see both upstream and down stream versions on you tube .
i was told that i should have the staff on the downstream side to keep pressure against me . other say the opposite . to have you put pressure on the staff ,, having it upstream??? I`m looking for the SAFEST way! ans I always have studds in my Sticky rubber boots . because sticky it is not !!

It goes on your dominant side. If right handed use it on your right side, if left handed use it with your left hand.

I'm comfortable using my staff on either side depending on the situation. That said if the current is strong I prefer it downstream.
