Thanks. Yes, I live in a fisherman's mecca, fly or otherwise. From our rivers and creeks we can catch anything from stockers to world records.
I took my new/old rod into the yard and did some casting motions for a while. No pain but there is some fatigue in the shoulder. Practice, I hope, will cure that.
