New member with a passion

Hi there

Just wanted to be part of something with lots of posts and information. A friend told me about this forum and the updates on fishing reports, also a good classified, maybe buy and sell some tackle, I have lots of it but my attention to species is changing.

 

My email you will notice mentioned life on radiation, this is due to being diagnosed with cancer and I just retired last year so it was devastating for me and my family. Just done the first round of radiation for the pain and now I am feeling the after affects.

 

My attitude is positive even though they say its terminal, inoperable, maybe 1 to 2 years if I am lucky so I have time to get onto Musky fishing seeing as I live right on one of the Kawartha Lakes north of Toronto, just built my home 2 years ago.

 

I bought the boat, new 9.9 kicker for trolling and a Humminbird SI with the maps, not allowed to drive the boat now due to the medications so a friend on the lake will be my Uber driver with his boat and I guess I will sell mine and pay for his gas.

 

My passion has always been Steelhead fishing with float and have a collection of reels and some dating back to the 60's, custom float rods and floats by the hundreds, I will more than likely sell most of these and donate some to a good cause. I will just fish on my doorstep, hard to get around now with the drugs they give me I am not allowed to drive drive.

 

 

Anyway, this forum will be a great distraction for reading and other things to think about.

 

Thanks for reading

 

Ian

Welcome aboard Ian. I think you will find some very dedicated and capable musky fishermen among the various fishermen on this site and they share wonderful information and experiences with the rest of us:).  Cancer has touched many of our lives and as mentioned stay as positive as you can as it does make a significant difference. We wish you the best of luck with your treatment as well as the fishing for the toothy beasts and will be interested in hearing about your upcoming adventures:yes:

To all

 

I apologise for the delay in getting my lists together but the hospital time is every day. The cancer center I have to go to is 4 hours  round trip during the week with rush hour and then I am there for hours on end, its just tiring me right out. We have to leave to get there for scans, like tomorrow leave the house at5:30 to get there for the first cat scan at 7:40.

 

Hope you understand but I have no get and go after the all day events at the hospital.

 

I will get to doing everything this week and weekend, my daughter is coming to the house to help me with it.

 

Thanks

 

Ian
