Well, guys, this is the first chance I've had with the outside world for some time, now. The lttle fall I had before the last swap turned out to be far more serious than the doctors originally thought. I have spent the past two weeks in Intensive Care at Tacoma General. It's a very long story and I'm pretty tired but as I bgain my strength back, maybe I can relate it to you. The wosrt part has been a complication to my right arm, never forseen but did occurr. I have no feeling in my index finger so tying my flies will be very difficult, at best. I do plan to finish them but due to travel restictions, pain, and general fatigue, I won't be at the swap. I thought for a couple of days that I might never be able to fish again. I was pretty devistated considering that what happened to my arm was a boo boo by the hosptal. My family and I are seeking counsel now as to whether to sue or not. Hopefully things won't get that bad and I'll ne back to normal in a week or two. I'll send the flies to Mimbles when they are complete and hopefully I have them ready on time. Tight Lines.
