multiple answers.
I carry a throw bag on Canadian waters because 15 meters of bouyant heaving line is required. I sure don't want it around my feet. In a bag is nice and tidy.

But no, in the US I don't. My trips are almost all solo and at most even tandem with one boat. Usually I don't expect to see another canoe, much less one in trouble. Would it be a good idea to carry..yes. Throwlines are better for apporaching people in a panic, even on flatwater which is what I am speaking of here.

On the river in a group..yes..always.

More practice continually needed..of course. Don't use it and it goes away. I have never tried with a paddle..I suspect I would throw the paddle too.
