[b]Lost[/b] brand new AT2 below Pine Creek on the Ark

Unfortunately I took a swim below the hole on Pine Creek (Arkansas) Sunday. I tried to hold onto the paddle for a while but eventually let it go so I could swim/bounce of rocks to shore. The paddle is a brand new AT2 with mountain surf creek pogies on it. I had not gotten around to writing my name on it yet (like a fool I know) but if anyone comes across the paddle and wants to return it I'd really appreciate it. My boat was found and leaned up against the fence at the Numbers put in so thanks to whomever saved it for me.

You can thank Craw, with Jackson Kayaks, and crew for pulling your boat to shore. I ran into them at the bottom of number two and they told me about the boat and said to keep an eye out for a body as they didn't see or know if whomever made it out. I'm relieved to hear you made it out! Where was the rest of your crew, could they not help out with the paddle? Or, were you paddling alone down Pine Creek?

Well thanks to Craw and crew for finding and pulling my boat out. I paddled the rapid alone but had a friend with a rope on shore below the hole. The trouble is I didn't swim until lower down and at that point my buddy couldn't do much. I held the paddle for a long while but eventually let it go. I swam the rest of the rapid until I could crawl on shore. Thanks for the response and concern.
