This is me in the Beaverkill taking a trout on the beautiful outfit presented to me by Flymph Forum Members. It was one of two fish I took-the first couple in well over a year.

Mark,

It looks just like your print! Nice example of life imitating art. :)

Cool photo, Mark. Nice bend in that rod.

The fish was taken on a Black Gnat, actually. Looking like this. It might have been taken as a little black caddis which was about at the time:



The rod is perfect for wets.

Thanks, Everyone. I began a new chemo regimen on June 12. It's kicking my fanny. Side effects are terrible, but trying to counteract them with various medications. Have been doing a lot of sleeping.

Hang in there, Mark. A friend of mine recently finished chemo, and it had kicked her butt too. But she's done now and feeling pretty darn good.
