I don't know if all of you out there have talked to Jaybee yet or not but he is going through a rough trot at the moment. He will be having major surgery on Wednesday with outcome unknown. I would like everyone out there to show their support and post up a kind and supportive word. All the best Jaybee for a speedy recovery.
Cheers Luke

Jaybee best of luck mate maybe someone can track down a laptop for ya so you can keep in contact. Anyway we are all thinking of you Squire.

;D Thankyou to Luke, Fitzy, Steve, Brett, Katrina, Randall, Chris, Phill, and Squire.. If i have missed any names I apologise. Tomorrow I go into hospital to be prepped. I know I have not met any of you personally (except for jason) and I only wish I could have made the meet and greet. But it goes to show what fisher persons whether salt or fresh are all about..(MATESHIP) as Luke said after seeing 4 different surgeons the outcome is not assured but hey don't greive for me eh..my final wishes are that if I dont make it my ashes will be scattered at burrum heads.( My family hails from there and thats where mum n dads ashes are dad being a professional fisherman) My wish for the future is that undersize and overnetting fish stop. There has to be something for our future childrens children. On a bright note tho hey luke if I make it through this..I would love to meet you and learn fly fishing for flathead and whiting to start with..From what I have read on the board this is one big happy community..thanks to steve and cohorts..keep up the good work and stick it to em steve, as fisher persons united we stand and maybe one day the government will listen to us. If I do make it through this tho..Look out world..once I get fit again..at present I am into flick n retrieve n release..just for the sport with the odd feed..and I beleive if luke can teach me the magic of the wand I will be then in Heaven.
God Bless all and I hope to see u on the board in around 3 weeks..If not I will arrange for someone to post a message..take care and remember to fight and fish for our childrens future.. here is what i look like with my children cheers ;)

Don't worry Jaybee,
Touchy's right mate watching me fly fish could have you in stitches ;D. When I get it somewhere close to right I'll show you. Still a mixture of frustration and enjoyment at the moment. Good luck tomorrow mate.

;D I'm back a few kilos lighter .. thanks to all the well wishers it really helped my determination to come thru this.. the op went well albeit some complications that blew it out to 6 hours. On a sad note it will be at least 6 weeks before I can hold the wand again. Will be the damnest longest 6 weeks of my life. I am still very uncomfortable and can only sit at the pc for around 10 mins at a time. Once again thanks for all your thoughts guys n gals..as i said before it really helped me to rally around with the feedback i recieved in hosp. Just goes to show how decent fisherpersons are eh!!

07-03-2002, 03:44 PM

Glad to see you recovering well. Hopefuly the 6 weeks will pass quicker than you think.

Touchy - R.I.P.

Welcome back Jaybee,Dont knock the 6 wks,use the time to follow Dr's orders,set small goals & get stronger each week,the time will go fast enough.Cheers(The Been There Done That Fella) ;)Touchy.

07-03-2002, 09:19 PM
It is good to see you recovering Jaybee take advantage of the 6 weeks and relax and make sure you are 100% before you get back into everything. All the best my friend. Mossy ;D ;D ;D

08-03-2002, 02:28 AM
Worked out well Jaybee. Take a rest and you'll be ready for the bream run. Yahoo ;D
Cheers Luke
