Allen is slipping. 

He’s not slipping, he’s retired.... but not from fishing!

 

Thank you Jerry for continuing his thread. ;)

That's a nice pic....remember we had 9 fish that day.....

A few months ago an accident separated (completely) my shoulder tendons from the bone, ruptured bicep, and badly tore my lone remaining tendon. ....surgeon says just live with it but no more casting. After three months I can lift my camera for a few seconds but that's it. It was a good 25 years though.

Allen, I am sure quite a few of us will heave your baits out for you and at worse case you can get an electric reel :)  I know its not the same but still keeps you in the game this upcoming season!

 

As for the camera a Go Pro or your cell phone works in a pinch and the glass is no where near as heavy.

 

Hope your recovery goes well!

Ouch that sucks, Allen.  Maybe if you switched arms, cast leftie.  May not get very far out there (who cares about distance right?) but it's worth a shot when things heal up more.  Never say Never.

That really sucks Allen. Hopefully improvement continues and you're at least able to get the camera back in action. I've always enjoyed your pics that you've posted over the years.

Man that sucks Allen-very sorry to hear that. But like others have said... you never know. Some years ago I had a spine issue and thought I was done with the beach for good, but the body somehow healed itself over time. Take care and wish you the best.

I'm going to back date.. If I posted this already. Sorry. 

Its rare that the 3 of us Coleman's are fishing together. I enjoy the stories that I get to hear from Steve and Dad from Hatteras in the old days.

I think even Allen stopped by to chat with the 3 of us..

Fall drum run 10/10/2020. I took the late shift with nothing to show. Crashed in the front seat of my truck around 1am only to have Steve wake me up at 8am. First 1 on. I crawled out to take pictures. Steve had 2 drum on the beach by 9. Dad moved in his spot to take the 3rd. I missed the bite but not to worried about it. Just happy to be there...
