Wow !!!!

Thank you one and all for your best wishes......yes I'm alive.

I now know what it is like to get hit by a speeding locomotive and live through it.

As Dan told you...I get hurt at work......lucky to be here.

I was ....for lack of a better word.."flattened" by a pallet of freight. It was "dislocated" from it's perch up in a steel rack where it was stored in the warehouse. I was on the back side of an aisle getting freight out of a bin. When the pallet was "dislodged". ( Forklft operator error.)

The pallet caught me full force in the shoulders and threw me clear of it actually landing atop me.

The force was sufficient that I now have two discs fused..plated.. and screwed....right about center of my back.

I am wearing a back brace for awhile so everything can fuse and heal well.

Sitting for long periods is intolerable.......keeping me away from tying.


To all of you who prayed...thank you. To all of you I failed in missing the swaps...I am truly sorry.

I am trying to get back at it..slowly. No swaps for me for a month or more anyway.


To Pocono......thanks bro..I owe you big!!

To all of my fellow tyers.........I msss this more than anything you can imagine. Every fly I have ever tyed has been retyed in my mind each day since I woke in the ICU. My faith in God...my friends and my family have been the rock I lean on.


To Dan....... I have heeded your advice.....and my lawyer assures me all will be taken care of. So far "the company" has paid everything..... and my bills are current..... never missed a payday. Thank You for all you have done.....posting here and all .......Thanks Bud!!!

God Bless!!

Basser, no thanks needed. I have the same problem with setting for long periods thanks to wrecking my back. I have a tying station I put on my stove. It's a bit higher than the kitchen counter (and has much less junk on it) and I can tie standing up.
And I'm glad you took my advice. I was worried about you pal.

AB lives!!!!!!!!!!



I have had a hard time since the accident......three ops....wife left.

But thank the Lord I am whole gain. Walkling...tying...and writing.

Wifey and I are working it out........slowly......apart.

Had very little fish time....now we are in a drought and my River has nearly dried up! Worst conditions in 20 years.

Thanks to all of you for your prayers and support..........Dan ...you da Man!!!!!

Good to see you back here AB--- hope you're feeling better and get a chance to get out there--- Your streams may be getting a lot of water this weekend thanks to hurricane Earl, so hopefully the fishing will get better.
