Bad Break.....No Pun...just pain!

Maybe we haven't taken notice but Art Burton has not been posting is helpful information lately.

Art had a serious leg accident while working on a ladder doing outside work on his house. Art had a double compound fracture to his left leg. He foot slipped off one of the bottom rungs. Thank God he was near the ground when this happen. Doctors have inserted a rod and cross drilled it with pins in his ankle. Spent 17 days in the hospital recovering. He's home now convalescing. He thinks it may be a year before he is active again to wet a line.

Get well!....... My thoughts are with you buddy.

This is bad news indeed. Art will be sorely missed along the South County beaches this fall. Here`s hoping for a speedy recovery. Maybe now we can get him to put down some of his experiences in print. Arts been catching bass on flies exclusivly since before spinning was invented and is a treasure chest of information.

I bet there are a few cow bass in South County breathing a sigh of relief. Get well soon Art so you can wipe that smile off their face .

What a lousy way to get shut out of a fishing season

Here's to a speedy recovery, Art- there are still guys who want to tag along with you one day, if and when a chance presents itself!

Best to You and Helen.

Art,
I am very sorry to here this awful news. I hope you are recovering alright and the pain is not too bad! Breaking a limb sucks but doing it in the summer and during fishing season makes it that much more hurtful. If it makes you feel any better I have been working so much this year I may have well broken my leg cause I be damned if I can find any time to get out and fish. I hope you get well quickly and I too would be more than willing to get you into the boat however we have to do it to get you back out of the house and on the water.

Mike M.

Thanks Guys for the good wishes

Thanks it does me good to find what kind of guys are involved with this website, and I do try and feed true information as to what I know. I remember how Al Brwewster and myself worked trying to develop fly patterns that would catch bass. Today it is so much different with all the synthetic materials that are available, and all the experts that have so many different killer patterns. I have got to the point where I am finding that almost any fly will take fish if presented right. I must have atleast 300 different patterns that I have taken fish on. I think I could fish with about 6 different patterns only varrying size, shape, and weight. While I am on my soap box, I want to commend StriBlu with the great flies he ties, and find it hard to believe they are so life like, that he has only been tying for about 5 years. I have been tying for around 60 years and I would be ashammed to have one see them. Again thanks guys for the thoughts, and if I can assist anyone on how when, and where I would be happy to help. I wish I could handle a fall fishing clave around Westerely or Charlestown but I can't Two years ago I had between 4 and 6 experts to help make the clave a thing of instructions on how to fish southern RI, but something called weather stopped it.
Thanks again for the thoughts. ArtB
