River ailments

I have developed a sore right elbow from lobbing a tungsten-tipped fly line with a small bird tethered to the end.  I think my fishing days might be numbered if I’m not careful.  In any event, I have decided to take a little time off from hurling these contraptions through the air.

A quiet day...perfect water...'traditional' weather...I was that close to hooking fish today. Since my elbow is ailing, I have decided to hang up the gear and pursue other interests for awhile.
