thanks for the updates guys
here's Dan's email:
All is well here; been working, playing with the Grandson, and just got back from 9 days in Florida. Enjoyed the drive down and the 5 days of fishing I got in, didn't knock the socks off the fish but did add a couple of new ones to my saltwater fly list. I got Sea Trout and Spanish Mackeral this time around. Hope all is well with you. I'll pop in on the Forum some time this week.
Looks like we needn't worry too much for him
