Count your blessings

and your appendages!

I am going in for surgery tomorrow on my casting hand, having ruptured the radial collateral ligaments on my casting MCP (meta-carpal phallangeal) joint of the thumb while sparring at karate lessons.

Needless to say critical to casting, guitar, weight lifting, and even simple things like tying a shoe or opening a jar. I am reminded every day when I try to turn the key to the ignition of how important the thumb is.

Out of commission for a couple of months at least... just a reminder to take very good care of your flyfishing tools!
