Default For Those of us Getting Along in Years...

I came across this today and thought I would share it with members here. Who among us could not use a little extra balance and confidence as we age and strive to still get on the water on a regular basis? Maybe this guys has a solution to slow the aging process down a bit as well as give us a few new skills to keep upright while roaming over snot-covered boulders in our favorite stream.

Check it out:

Kelly.

Amazing! If I tried to do some of those exercises they would still be picking up what's left of me! Maybe the ones with the hands and throwing the balls but the walking and balancing stuff , wow ! He's really good so I'll leave those to him!

I've been thinking more along the lines of a fishing hat with a built-in gyroscope.

When the time comes I'll probably just go with an expensive wading staff that kind of does it all

Envy is not my game, but in this case I'll make an exception. My balance is so bad at this point I try not to close my eyes unless I'm sitting down or on the bed.

Taking a shower, washing my hair with eyes closed, takes all the concentration I've got to stay up-right. "Growing old is not for the faint of heart."

Actually you're very close. We have a local 'Spey 'Clave' next weekend and there's no way I'll stay on my feet for 5 minutes. A folding lawn chair is on my 'buy list.'

Standing up in the shower, with eyes closed, is a 'show of strength.' A MUST DO! Many will understand, those that don't, at some point, 'Force of I Will.'

God, I hope not for you.

Fred
