Fly Fishing Pain

Have you been feeling under the weather lately? Maybe it is because you fish too much. Here is an old Science Daily article that points out some of the many afflictions of the avid fly fisher.

"The back and leg pains experienced by the fishermen stem from a number of factors, Berend explained. Many fly fishermen stand on rocky and uneven surfaces in fast-moving waters while they fish, which can cause stresses on the leg and lower back over long periods of time."

"Some fishermen load their vests with too much weight to save trips back to the shore, while others wear vests that do not equally distribute the weight across the body," he said. "In these cases, I would recommend switching to the newer, better designed vests and not carrying so much weight."

Maybe they should try one of these:
