I still remember my first day on the river a month after my acl surgery. My therapist said I'd be ok to go fishing. So I headed out for a float with two buds. 8 hours later my knee had swollen up to the size of a grapefruit.

I went back to therapy two days later and my therapist was pissed. I told him I just went fishing as we discussed. He asked for how long and was surprised when I told him all day.

His idea of fishing and mine were a little different.

Glad you are back in the saddle.

Congrats! That's gotta feel great...going fishing after having the new arm installed. The limited mobility hits fly fishers hard from what I've been seeing.

Still have a cast on after my achilles repair. I've got a goal to be trout fishing by May, but I might be pushing it.

Way to go Gary! I'm happy to hear that your downtime was so short. When I broke my shoulder in'14 I had to have my arm strapped across my belly for the first 6 weeks. It's barely six weeks for you and you are catching fish already! Sounds like I shoulda' gone the Remove and Replace route.

Stay strong-don't let old age screw with you.
