    Default Gaintfish broke leg

    All the long time members may remember that I have had a rough couple of years with breaking my foot two times. Finaly have healed up enough this year to make one backcountry trip with my son Gaintfish. Well just as I was planning a fall back country trip, Gaintfish stepped in a hole during his cross country pratice and brook his fibula. Not a bad break but he will out of commision for about 6-8 weeks. You can blame it on the drought, here in Nashville the leaves have started falling off the trees. He stepped in a hole that was covered by leaves, about a foot deep.

    Oh no!

    I hope Giantfish isn't in too much pain...and I hope he heals well. Tell him I said casts are babe magnets.

    No Cast, just one of those high dollar boots, very expensive ($400-500) that insurance usualy dosn't cover. But he will still get a lot of attention I am sure.

    Default Babe Magnets?

    Paula,

    Do tell - which casts are babe magnets? Roll cast, standard overhead, side arm? Inquiring minds need to know.

    Default Ouch!

    Vern tell Giantfish to get better soon and you should take him some magazines to read up on while he's getting better!

    NV2L8-That comment was so appropriate! I'll be laughing on that a while! I'm interested in a response! I'm betting the double haul!

    Tell him heal fast!

    Default Tough Break

    Vern,

    I work in Nashville as well, so, I know what you mean about the trees.

    I hope Giantfish recovers well and quickly. He probably needs dad to hire a 16 - 17 year old nanny to wait on him and assist in the recovery.

    I think a roll cast would be best.

    I don't live just to fish, but I want to fish just as long as I live.

    Giantfish,
    Sorry about the leg and I hope you heal up and get back to running and fishing very soon!

    I think a new fly rod is going to help you feel better much faster, maybe a new reel to go with the new rod.

    Some "female attention" will also help ease the pain.

    Jeff
