pick your spots
I have similar mobility issues Lynn. Back surgery, balance problems and turning 60 has led me to selecting spots that I can get to without crawling over boulders and trees. I try to pick my spots where I can stay out of the water but places I know hold fish.
I'm fishing more tail waters these days also. I often think of the last scene in the movie "A River Runs Through It" Norman Maclean is an old man, he says he can't get to those spots he fished but he is still out there. I want to be that way. Some day I may only have the ramp at Miller Island and the rock wall of the bone crusher to fish but long as it brings me joy, I'll take it.
