I have been grounded for two weeks. Pneumonia or not pneumonia. Depends on which Medico is talking, and when. Happy to say that chest x-ray yesterday was negative, so maybe soon. Meanwhile, I am practicing my casting in the warm sun (hit the piling not the boat, Bob), and soaking up knowledge from the likes of SPDan and GT so I will be ready. (Who would have guessed that patience is a key factor; and that "don't leave fish to find fish" is a truism?)
It is a personal call; but, I agree with Jerdon about fever. It can turn sour in a hurry. In my case--see age--I am cautious, and wimpy. Besides, it is supposed to be fun.
