I have been fishing more often in the last 12 months than ever, and have attributed the dull ache in my elbow to this increased, and constant casting. Admittedtly, I am a self taught caster, but feel as though I can cast great distances with ease. Perhaps my technique is off? I have been using an intermediate sink tip for cuts, and salmon out in the salt on the local beaches, and it definately takes more work to get the line out than it does to cast a floating line. I work at home, and live closeby to good beach fishing, and find the temptation to go fishing too great, so I end up fishing at least 3-4 times a week for several hours a day. The obvious answer would be to take a break for a couple weeks, but with Salmon season in full swing -it is just not an option My elbow has a constant dull ache, and I find the most mundane of tasks to be quite painful at times. If anyone could weigh in on this with some advice, it would be sorely appreciated.
