After Surgery – Good News and Bad

by | Aug 24, 2012 | Uncategorized | 3 comments

A quick note to update Dad. 

It’s Friday and we are still in Dartmouth-Hitchcock Hospital despite an Dad’s expected release yesterday.  While the brain surgeon says the actual surgery went very well, Dads recovery is going poorly and he will continue to be hospitalized until at least Monday.  My family and I have been here most of the time since we brought him in at 5 AM on Wednesday.  The only time we leave is at night to rest up at the Days Inn.

He is very confused, barely awake and can not do anything.  Its scary as hell but the doctors say he’ll be ok.  The slow recovery is due to his age and original shape.  And as we expected to, an hour ago we were informed that the earliest he might leave the hospital will be Monday.  On that note, I may take a break and wander around this area with Moms car, find some water and make a few casts.

Thanks everyone for the notes, calls and emails and thinking of Dad.

I started fly fishing at age 7 in the lakes and ponds of New England cutting my teeth on various sunfish, bass, crappie and stocked trout. I went to Northland College in Ashland, Wisconsin, where I graduated with a Naturalist Degree while I discovered new fishing opportunities for pike, muskellunge, walleyes and various salmonids found in Lake Superior and its tributaries.

From there I headed west to work a few years in the Yellowstone region to simply work as much as most people fish and fish as much as most people work. I did just that, only it lasted over 20 years working at the Jack Dennis Fly Shop in Jackson, WY where I departed in 2009. Now it’s time to work for "The Man", working for myself that is.

I pursue my love to paint fish, lecture on every aspect of fly fishing you can imagine and host a few trips to some of the most exotic places you can think of. My ultimate goal is to catch as many species of fish on fly possible from freshwater to saltwater, throughout the world. I presently have taken over 440 species from over 60 countries!
