Hey, I'm Still Here

I've contracted that H1N1 C1S1 Avian Flu or what ever they call the bug that's going around. To stave off your question, yes I did get a flu shot back in October.

Today is day seven and trust me, it's not been a pretty picture. It started off with a little sore throat. Progressed into a cough and then finally settled in my sinus. OH yeh, all at the same time too.

Nothing I could take would make any difference. I took Nyquil, Sudafed, Tylenol, cough drops, liquid cough medicine, and anything else I had in the medicine cabinet. AND I HAD A FLU SHOT.

So, what I'm saying is that it's put a serious crimp in my fishing, BUT I'm almost over it and will be back out this week. 

Stay tuned and I'll see if I can catch something worth talking about.    


  1. Mark, sorry to hear the "Bug" has got you. Not a really great way to start the new year. Hopefully, you soon will feel like getting out and sharing some Northern California Trout with us all. Always look forward to your posts.

  2. Mark, I think you gave me your bug. i've been having your symptoms as of friday. it sucks! thanks for nothing!!
    ps - it's pretty scary that this bug is communicable through the internet!

    1. Hey Tim. I take full responsibility. I didn't know it could pass through the Internet either. Imagine that.

    Glad to know you are on the mend, the flu is nothing to sneeze at especially at our age--looking forward to some 2014 fly fishing post from you. Take care--thanks for sharing

  4. Man I hope your feeling better.
    The shot is not a guarantee.
