Boat ramp tumble spells trouble for my fishing and blogging

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
