    I sure am! It’s time to get out and cast a line for real. I can’t take it anymore with the wind blowing on the weekends down here. I’m going out this weekend and get wet.

    How are you guys holding up?

    Itching to go somewhere, but my arthritic hip has gotten to the point where it won’t let me stand or walk for more than 10 – 15 minutes. Cortisone shots did nothing – seeing doc this Thursday to discuss Plan B. Surgery? It would mean no wade fishing until fall :(

    Getting old sux.

    I’m sorry to hear that Grs. I myself have hip & lower back issues as well. Sometimes when I’m fishing, and I have my chest waders on, I’ll sit in the river with the current hitting my lower back area. Man that feels good. Takes down the swelling and I can move easier. I refuse to go down without a fight, so I just fish on through it. I did buy one of those support belts from Fish Pond. Hopefully it helps.

    I do hope that if you do need surgery it will only be minor, in & out thing, or maybe a day or two at most to rest. I have heard many miraculous stories from some who have had surgery, so lets hope you will be one of them.

    I truly believe dry fly fishermen are the toughest breed of fishermen around. You’re going to do just fine Grs, just fine indeed.

    Appreciate the kind thoughts, Scotty.

    I’m looking into a few days in a drift boat w/a guide – probably the Green in Utah as it supposedly has good surface fishing most of the year. Expensive, but I’ll go stir crazy if I can’t get away at least for a bit.

    Ive been ready, but the winter will not go away! Looks like rain, freezing rain and snow this weekend. Oh well what are you going to do?

    Sorry to hear that partsman. It was in the 80’s here yesterday, and should be again today. It’s too warm for April, but if it brings on the hatches I’ll take it.

    Grsdlnr: Daily hatches of midges and BWO’s on the Green now. You can wade fish it easily enough. A float trip or three will put you on the pods with the right guide who wants to do that for you. But you can walk to some of ’em.
