Some of you are aware I was in a serious motorcycle accident June 17, 2016. Almost died, 3 broken bones, five surgeries, 18 staples in the head, yuck!. I felt as whole as I have since then today when I fished for the first time again. Casting was off, wading was tough and slow, but the fish were cooperative. Thanks to anyone that has given a thought or prayer. I am grateful!.

I, like many others, really missed your regular YouTube posts Ron. Glad you're on the mend. Now that the doctors healed your body, let the Driftless heal your soul.

Glad you made it out at the end of the season! That's great news! I hope you get all better soon and before next season -- less than 2 1/2 months away.

Glad to hear you're on your way back. For me, fly fishing counts as physical therapy.

Let me know if you want to wander into MN sometime. We can share "bad casting" tips. LOL
