More about pain free fishing: a Travis Perret update

Across the years we have trumpeted the abilities of Travis Perret at making us better anglers.

Besides the near miracles he performed with me, we have  noted the work that he has accomplished with topnotch tournament anglers such as of Brent Chapman of Lake Quivira, Kansas, and Luke Clausen of Spokane Valley, Washington,

Yet, we have been disappointed that more recreational  anglers have not become devotees of Perret's methods of making us better anglers physically and mentally. We penned those laments in a blog entitled "The Genius of Travis Perret," which was posted on April 13.

To our delight, however, Jim Farrow,  who is an ardent recreational from Olathe, Kansas, sent two notes to the Finesse News Network about his work with Perret.


On May 23, Farrow wrote:


"We've never met but I wanted to send you a short note to say thank you for introducing me to Travis Perret. I have enjoyed reading your articles over the years and recently became re-introduced to you through your blog. Your April 13 article on Travis struck a cord with me, and I contacted Travis and made an appointment for an evaluation.

"Being an active 63 year-older who loves to fish, I've noticed the last couple of years that I have developed numerous aches and pains that have affected my time on the water. Having gone through three surgeries on my knee and one in my lower back, I am no stranger to pain. But, in addition to my knees and back, it seemed that I was experiencing chronic discomfort in other areas of my body that I was not able to alleviate through pain medications. I attributed most of this to the fact that I was just getting older. Reading your article made me realize I shouldn't use old age as an excuse and that I should do something about it.

After meeting Travis I understood why you spoke so highly of him. He's a very personable, affable young man who made me feel very comfortable talking to him about my concerns. He assessed my condition and concluded I had a dysfunctional body.  (My wife could have told him that). Years of compensating for bad knees and a bad back had caused other parts of my body to get out of alignment. He said, 'I think I can help you. Let's go to work.'

"I have been to see Travis three times thus far,  and through the series of personalized exercises he prescribed, I have noticed a marked improvement in the amount of pain I am experiencing. As you state in your article, this is not a quick fix. You have to be dedicated to doing the exercises to see the benefit. I have three more sessions with Travis and I know if I keep up with these exercises, I will continue to see improvement.


"Thanks, again Ned for your article about Travis. I really believe he has helped me."

On May 28, Farrow penned  note about his progress at becoming a pain-free angler, saying "I'm very pleased with the progress I'm making through Travis' exercises. I've got arthritis in both knees and I know that is not going to magically disappear. But, I've noticed a big difference in my flexibility and also less pain in my shoulders and upper back. "
