Painful Week For Me--No Not Fishing

I have got behind on my blogging this past week, because of this thing called “Shingles” no not the roof version, but the painful kind that will slow you down for sure. I don’t know which is worst the medication or the pain Shingles can give you. I hope to be back on the water by the end of next week.
My wife and I did make a trip to our son-in-law and daughter’s home in Tennessee this past weekend for a little Caney Fork trout fishing. I was feeling the effects of the Shingles at that time but I just couldn’t let the pain spoil my trip with B.T. my son-in-law. I have to say it was the toughest trip we both have had on the Caney ever. B.T. managed to land a nice Brook and that was the extent of trout for the day. We both agreed on way home that it is just nice to be on the water sometimes and enjoy the beauty of this place with all its wildlife. We hope to make another trip before the holidays.
This was the only thing catching fish
Bryson with Pops and Meme in Florida for our niece's wedding recently. Just thought I would throw this photo in here, so you guys could get a good look at the next fly fishermen in the family.

Sometimes it's better to leave the fishing to the birds anyway :-)

Sorry to hear about the shingles, hope you can get back to normal soon!

I suppose I'd be remiss if I didn't say "Go Dogs!"

I am watching the dogs right now and they don't look impressive on defense. Same old story state always plays auburn tough and loses in the fianl minutes. thanks for the comment

Sorry to hear about the shingles. Even sorrier to hear that the medicine is so god awful. At least you were able to get out and get a medicine that is as good as it gets, hitting the trout stream :) Nice job scoring a Brookie on a tuff day. Glad to hear you were able to spend time with the fam too. Best wishes on a speedy recovery. Tight Lines.

I'm aware of the pain of shingles. You must have really wanted to spend some quality time with B.T. Love the pic of the heron.

Everyone thinks shingles can be over with in a few days, not so, I am into 5 days. The medication makes me feel like I am on a cheap drunk. thanks for the comment

Hi Bill, I have been away for a few weeks and am trying to catch up on my blogging and reading all my favorites. Sorry to hear that you are battling Shingles. Hang in there, and, you should be back on the water before you know it.

By the way, I have a new blog format and new blog name and address. Wondering if you could take a minute and update my blog address. Here it is'

Thanks for everything!

Hope you feel better soon. Lots of fun fall fishing is on the horizon.

I have still got some mending to do. The Doctor told me it could take 7 to 10 days to get over the Shingles. I told him that is 7 to 10 days I am not on the water. We need to get together for some fall fishing soon. thanks for the comment
