past times…

Strive as one may, one’s past times (hobbies/passions) can be relegated to the bin of past times. Life’s struggles, relentless at times, change the mind’s focus and when the pressures let up, not surprisingly those old hobbies seem distant. I have vowed to make every effort, through the Winter doldrums, to prepare for fly fishing, fly tying, photographing the garden, just plain getting out to reconnect. Inertia sets in and the mind seems to retreat to a lazy state.

Little Black Nymph…

Not too small, a size 14 here, trout pattern when basic black works subsurface. If you aren’t chasing Salmon or Winter Steelhead then it’s time to tie.

As some of you know, SwittersB & Exploring use to be SwittersB & Fly Fishing. I switched names because my interests had expanded into a broader arena, photography wise. That said, in the past, I frequently reminded readers to stay fit for safety reasons. I am ever more convinced of the need for maintaining strength and flexibility, particularly in the lower extremities if one is out hopping about on uneven terrain (see those shoreline rocks behind me).

I have taken several bad falls the last few years along rivers and trails, which ultimately required a complex surgery on my ankle this Spring (further I have damaged the back, wrists and elbows). The rehabilitative process is ongoing and not like it was even ten years ago.

Please maintain your foot, leg, hip, core strength especially if you are out moving about on uneven surfaces. Once older, the restorative consequences are sobering. Stay stronger, be safe!!!
