Default Bad Fall--Fly fishing from the bank

Fell 2 Thursdays ago getting out of Little River in Townsend. "Busted" my knee open and needed 9 stitches. Didn't know I was bleeding until I took off my waders. Luckily blood flow was minor.

Problem is I'm 64 and on Plavix so bleeding is not a good idea. I was using a wading pole and felt sole boots but was in very shallow water at river edge. Dr said balance worrsens as we age.

I just got Ian Rudder book fishing in Smokies and he recommended staying out of the water as much as possible. Can I catch fish using stealth from bank and can anyone suggest any technique?

Be careful!
