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!

Good luck to you during your surgery and following therapy. At least you picked the right time of year to do this (the end of striper season).

Take care.

Thanks Mark -

unfortunately it's the start of bonefish and soon to be steelhead season out west and the tarpon expedition is now pushed way out as well - but still I am glad it's going to affect 2-3 select weeks instead of the heart of the striper season, that's for sure!

Just wanted to warn people that if I am posting bad things over thanksgiving it's because I have the day off, typing one-handed and am taking pain killers

Well, at least this time you'll have a legitimate excuse.
