    MS and fishing
    mmthlvr posted:
    Hope everyone's having a great Labor Day weekend & your MS is also on Vacation:) This is a question for those of you who love to fish. I'm an avid fisher WOmen but I find it a lot more difficult these days. I constantly drop things in the water, can barely tie a not & I'm afraid one of these times my whole rod is going to go into the water when I cast:)

    I was thinking of tying everything to my vest but that would look pretty stupid. I will have to say I'm still out fishing my husband,LOL
    Would appreciate any ideas any of you may have.

    Personally, I use a trawling net and a harpoon.
