Boat ramp tumble spells trouble for my fishing and blogging

by Ned Kehde   |  November 7th, 2012 1

Dear Anglers,

Yesterday around 11 a.m., I was in the process of launching my boat at Lake Shawnee, Kansas, hoping to do some bass fishing for rainbow trout. For more information about bass fishing for trout, see http://www.in-fisherman.com/2012/02/22/bass-fishing-for-trout/

But to my chagrin, I slipped on a section of the boat ramp that was covered with some filamentous algae. I fell and slid into the water, and as I fell I broke my wrist and hand. Therefore, I will visit a surgeon today rather than some of our nearby waterways.

We ¬†were told by the folks at the hospital’s¬†emergency¬†room that my 72-year-old body and soul ¬†will be somewhat out of commission for about six weeks. During this time, I will work with Travis Perret of Felix Fishing to keep other parts of my body in alignment and free of pain. For more information, ¬†see¬†http://www.felixfishing.com/¬†and¬†http://www.in-fisherman.com/2012/02/20/perret-egoscue-and-me-my-quest-for-pain-free-fishing/

What’s more, typing ¬†blogs with my just my right hand is a tad troublesome today, but as the days unfold, we are hoping this task will become more ¬†fluid.¬†Nevertheless, we will attempt to keep posting blogs even though they will be cluttered with more errors than normally besmears them.

As ever,

Ned

    Dave:
    Thanks for the note.
    Please keep sending your reports to the Finesse News Network. We will incorporate them into our monthly
    Midwest finesse blog.
    According to the medical folks, I might not be afloat until January. We, of course, hoping to prove them wrong.
    I am doing the 10 exercises that Travis Perret created for me to keep the rest of my body free of pain and strong, and I do them at least twice a day.
    Eager to read your next detailed report about finesse bass fishing in northeastern Kansas.
    Ned
