Update On Yesterday

It's been more than 24 hours since the wasp encounter and I have to tell you I'm alive and well.

The first 6 to 8 hours the stings hurt like hell. Then the next 6 hours or so they just stung. After that I was asleep so I don't know what they felt like.

This morning the spots were tender if I touched them, but most, if not all, the pain was gone. I can only imagine what it would have been like had I not had on as much clothing as I did.

I'm also thankful I'm not allergic to the stings because I was by myself, out in the middle of nowhere, and it would have been a much bigger problem.

So, thanks everybody I fine. Oh, the hands are OK too.



  1. Ouch! Glad to hear you aren't allergic , as those little suckers can be nasty if you are. Your picture in the post below looks like what we call yellow jackets , but I think they are actually a German Wasp? Maybe having a beer will make you feel better next time :)

    The things we do to catch fish....

  2. Josh said pretty much what I was thinking. Glad you're okay.

  3. The allergic part is what I was concerned about. My late Brother, rest his soul, was allergic big time to bee stings. Had this happened to him, well......
    Happy to hear you believe you are going to be fine!

    Glad you up and going again--got a suggestion tie up a duplicate of that wasp and let the next trout you encounter knock the hell out of it. It may not be the real wasp but it might get you some pay back.

  5. Glad you are doing okay sir, hope you are back to 100% soon and have a tight line.
