Sorry I haven't been around much. I've had the unfortunate luck of being diagnosed with Meniere's disease which affects balance and causes bouts of vertigo (spinning), so I've spent the last several months mostly in bed. It's backed off recently and I'm seeing a specialist who claims he'll be able to get rid of most of the symptoms at some point, but apparently it's going to take a while. Might be surgery, might be meds, might be accupuncture, or a combination. We'll see. Didn't do any fishing this fall obviously. I hope you guys got some. I did manage to finish a video on plugs and hook sizes. I'll post it when I get a chance.

, it should be obvious
With just occasional and mild vertigo myself, I have no idea how I would cope if it worsens. Hang in there Rich, I thought we were missing you because of your move to VA. Wish that was the reason. Get well soon.

I can relate, but to a far lesser extent, good luck and be well.

Hang in there. I have a friend that had vertigo after being hit by a car and she found the PT they sent her for really helped. Good to try everything that you can to see what works.

I don't think we have ever met, but have enjoyed your posts through the years. Who knows, as a couple of surf rats we may even have passed in the nite. I wish you strength, & a quick recovery.
