Hi there,
I have never thought I would get there....
Since August I have off and on a sharp pain under my left foot, it comes and normally goes Wink
Monday I had a varicose vein surgery and I have to wear one of these rubberised surgical stockings (black, sexy). Yesterday the pain under the foot returned and due to the pressure of the stocking it didn't go away over night.
Wednesday til Friday there is fishing planned and there is no way I am going to miss this. It is a three hour drive and I can't push the clutch Evil or Very Mad , now I am taking prescription painkillers and waiting for things to improve.
That is the first time in my 33 year fishing career that I am doping to get fishing, Anyone else ever been down that road.
TL Florian

Florian,

Really sorry to hear about your agony. Hopefully it will disappear once the surgery heals...

EPO, stereoids, pain-killers, blood doping... you have to go fishing! And I'm sure standing with the sore foot in cold water will help!

And no, no doping for me, but crutches, support bandages and even a wheelchair has been (is) on my tab. We don't get any younger.

Martin

Hi Martin,
thanks for the compassion. The fishing worked, although rest would have done the foot a lot better. But as you rightly wrote fishing must be.
The fishing suffered a little from the rain. Although the water immediately under the dam didn't cloud, the river gained about a half meter within half a day, making wading close to impossible. Best fishing was Friday morning.
I share your positive view on zonker flies. The best one was a simple black design size 8 with dumbel eyes, fished on a sink tip. Perhaps I put this into a little tying instruction over the winter, It has a cousin without the weight and they are pretty effecitve, best fish was a chubby 40 cm brown.
TL and dry socks
